The Border Trilogy, Reissued

There are a few moments in a writer's life that stand out as landmarks. Holding that first published book in your hands is one of them. The first check is nice, too. Then as each successive book is published, getting it and turning it around, looking at the binding, examining the cover--these are all special, wonderful experiences. Something that you wrote, someone else cared enough about to edit and publish and now it's not just an idea but a thing, solid and real. The joy that accompanies…See More

Another DEVIL'S BAIT Rave

Thriller THE DEVIL'S BAIT just keeps scooping up rave reviews. The latest, at WebbWeaver (http://webbweaver-zelda555.blogspot.com/) says, in part:"The action is fast-paced with many twists and turns and Mariotte has obviously done much research on the intricacies of banking transactions."The Devil’s Bait is an intriguing tale with loads of action and well written characters and I’m giving it 41/2 spiders."See More

Short Story Love

I'm primarily known (where I'm known at all) as a novelist and as a comic book/graphic novel writer. I haven't published a whole lot of short fiction, partly because I haven't pursued that area, and partly because when I do get story ideas, they tend to be big, sprawling ones. Novels, in other words.But lately I've been the recipient of various bits of happy news on different short stories.At the invitation of a producer for Tucson's NPR radio station, KUAZ, I wrote a brand-new short story,…See More

I'm pressed for time right now, so I haven't responded on the forum.  But the book about the pedophile might be a Bare Knuckles Press type book.  Send me a brief description (alan@noirnation.com) and if it looks good I'll pass it along to the BKP editors.  BKP publishes books that deal with subjects other presses might avoid, we do not publish books that cater to prurient interests, but serious literary studies of subjects that might be too risky for others.  Pedophilia is a serious problem in the world that hurts and permanently damages many innocent people.  Ignoring it wont' make it go away.
