Subject description: Post-apocalyptic noir novel out now

Usually I'm in this forum in pursuit of new sounds and promoting my music as Little Nobody, but now I have something 5.5” × 8.5” in paper rather than 12" on vinyl.

And while Melbourne may be at the other end of the globe, I wouldn't be surprised if you've never pictured it as the last city left in the world.

Anyway, that’s the kind'a offbeat premise behind Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat, a post-apocalyptic noir novel I just had published through Another Sky Press in America. While it's true I'm an expat and have been based in Tokyo over the past 10 years, the tome is as much an homage to my old home town as it is an obsessive one to classic 1940s and ‘50s cinema.

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

There're also surreal red herrings aplenty, hardboiled stuff, a healthy dose of subversive humour, and a hero cut from the same cloth as Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade – but with the chemical and alcoholic tendencies of someone straight out of an Irvine Welsh romp.

Perhaps just as importantly, Vegemite and and even Burke & Wills put in appearances. Wink

If you find this in any way vaguely curious, it's actually in-stock now at some indie book shops and on Amazon.

Even better there's a free PDF digital version you can check out online @ Another Sky - http://www.anothersky.org/in-print/tobacco-stained-mountain-goat-andrez-bergen/ - just click on the "read before you buy" bit.

BTW...

...you can now grab the digital version of Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat for FREE (for iPad or Kindle)... to road-test it, if you will.

While personally I prefer the paperback - it gives you something to hang onto! - we want people to read our books, even if they read 'em for no charge. That's why we provide digital versions of our releases for an optional contribution. You can contribute up front, or read the entire book before coming back to contribute or buy a bound copy.

Or you can just pay nothing. Up to you. Wink

Check out the freebie download options here:
