Man with No Name novella arriving from JournalStone on March 18, 2016:
Nanashi was born into a life of violence. Delivered from the streets by the Heron Clan, he mastered the way of the gun and knife and swiftly ascended through yakuza ranks to become a dreaded assassin. His latest task? He and an entourage of expert killers are commanded to kidnap Muzaki, a retired world-renowned wrestler under protection of the rival Dragon Syndicate.
It should be business as bloody usual for Nanashi and his ruthless brothers in arms, except for the detail that Muzaki possesses a terrifying secret. A secret that will spawn a no-holds barred gang war and send Nanashi on a personal odyssey into immortal darkness.

“With Man With No Name Laird Barron just staked his claim on the thriller genre. This is bold, complex, and absolutely riveting. Film this right now!” –Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Patient Zero and Predator One
A new novella is arriving soon from JournalStone and Bizarro Pulp Press. Follow the dashing young Tooms brothers and their misadventures through the Golden Age of cosmic horror and pulp science fiction in X’s for Eyes:
“This has the narrative velocity of the best thirties pulp, the grim countenance and surly demeanor of the deadliest noir, and a premise the X-Files would wish for.” – Stephen Graham Jones, author of AFTER THE PEOPLE LIGHTS HAVE GONE OFF
“[X’s for Eyes is] so ripe with cosmic horror allusion and riffs that it qualifies as post-modern, but so charged with narrative drive that one can only hold on for dear life and hope to escape with their mind intact.” Jeremy Robert Johnson, author of SKULLCRACK CITY
