Shelter From The Storm: A Hard-Boiled New Orleans Legal Thriller (Tubby Dubonnet Mystery #4) (The Tubby Dubonnet Series), by Tony Dunbar
The FOURTH sly adventure in the Tubby Dubonnet Series, Tony Dunbar's witty yet hard-boiled foodie-noir mysteries.

“Nothing… will have prepared you for Dunbar’s uniquely laid-back approach to natural disaster… Just enough nefarious plotting to punch up the drolly understated tableaux till you can’t help laughing, and just enough menace to make you feel you aren’t really missing anything by picking Tubby over the special-effects spectaculars at the local flick.” -Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“By far the best of a very good collection.” -Book Page

Slick prose, upbeat characters, and the particular wonders of the French Quarter will commend this t...

Kpol: A Novelette, by Bart Hopkins Jr
This is the story of a starving tribe trying to survive 100,000 years ago, fleeing the chill of an ice age, and how they came to have language. Rumors that this tale was handed down from fathers and mothers to their children, through all those generations, are almost certainly false. Still, I can say this much. It certainly could have happened this way....

For the Love of an Angel, from the Immortal Blog
Hey, Phinn here.
I'm an Angel. A 16 year old immortal. You don't know me. You've never seen me. Unless you're a dead teenager and you've been good and live in Southern California (narrows it down, huh?). If that's the case, we've probably met. See, I take the souls of good kids to Heaven, but I'm not allowed to interact with the living...which makes high school, being on the soccer team and writing for the school newspaper a little difficult. As an angel, I play by the rules.
My "arch-frenemy" Iszn, the demon who takes the bad kids to Hell, break...
