Murder Slim Press Updates: 2017-2018

Murder Slim Press: Updates Mark SaFranko's Books Robert McGowan's Books UV Ray's Books Seymour Shubin's Books Jeffrey Frye's Books Steve Hussy's Books Tommy Trantino's Books The Savage Kick Issues Richard Watts' Books Return to MurderSlim.com

As of 2017, Murder Slim Press has been running for twelve years, but the books released in 2017 were some of the best.

2018 is going to be a year of rest... read below for more information. But all orders will ALWAYS be fulfilled promptly. My enforced break is purely from editing NOT selling. I need the fucking money!

Do me a favour... don't forget about Seymour Shubin and Robert McGowan. They're two of our previous writers whose writing I love more and more each time I read 'em.
You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Use the icons at the top of the page. I'll try to keep you up-to before coming back with a bunch more books in 2019.

--- Owing to life-threatening and life-ending family illnesses I'm not going to release any MSP books in 2018. I've quit my dayjob to try and help get through the current events. Any patience is much appreciated, and this is very much "see you again."
All MSP orders will ALWAYS be fulfilled promptly and I'm selling a bunch of additional rare comics, books and DVDs on Murder Slim Press' eBay account to make ends meet.

--- If you read this page, you can actually buy both Blossoms and Blood and The Savage Kick #9 if you scout around this website and online.
I'm just delaying the release until I get get chance to promote them fully (likely in 2019)

--- Jeff is banged up in solitary so the Bank Robber's Blog is on the back burner. But it'll come back on fire... as always.

--- SK#8, SK#9 and SK#10 are completed so we're closing SK submissions. I think these will be the last issues so they're good 'uns. We'll continue to publish other MSP stuff, but things are crazy right now. I continue to bitch about Kindle and smart phones. They're killing a lot of publishing, but the key is to survive.

--- It's here... The Savage Kick #8. Enjoy!
--- We never do things by half. Also here is Saint of the City: the stellar, shocking, semi-psychotic and all-great debut from David Noone.

--- It's the 16th August. Happy Bukday everyone! Celebrate by buying some more Buk books and some other books by great writers. Read. Drink. Hell, read and drink lots... but always stick to the good stuff.
--- The Savage Kick #9 is complete and is dovetailing with Blossoms and Blood for release later this year. The writers included with Mark SaFranko are Drew Slagter, Jose Pep Arroyo, Wayne T. Dowdy, Benjamin Peurey, Nick Benca and Jeffrey "Bank Blogger" Frye.
Check out the cover of SK#9 here. You'll see how it links to the theme of "Convictions" - although that word has dual meanings...
--- Our comic book series Barflies starts on the 16th August. You can follow it on Murder Slim Press's Facebook page and (eventually) on Twitter. I have no idea if people will like it, but it celebrates Charles Bukowski and countless other authors.

JULY 2017
--- Mark SaFranko's Blossoms and Blood will be released in October. It's brilliant work and a transition piece between God Bless America, Dirty Work and - ultimately - Hating Olivia.
Here is the cover for B&B. The inside cover is the best I've created over the years, but you'll need to buy the book to see that.

JUNE 2017
--- The Savage Kick #8 is complete and will be released soon to accompany Saint of the City. David Noone features in the issue; along with Cathi Unsworth, Steve Hussy, Robert McGowan, Anthony Tinsman, Grant Flint and Amy Yolanda Castillo.
SK#8 is called "Confessions" and is about the nature of crime and consequences... or the rare escapes from retribution. Look at the cover here...

MAY 2017
--- Full pages for David Noone's Saint of the City are now online. The book will be released in August and here is its cover. It will turn some heads in all of the right ways.
--- Jeffrey P. Frye is in The Hole (again) and is likely getting transferred (again). We'll keep you up to date with The Bank Robber's Blog each month with stories we had in reserve. The main thing is Jeff is safe... rather than cracking safes... and his pen continues to fire out fantastic stuff.

APRIL 2017
--- A Monday Morning Boing by Jeff is essentially filth. But at least it's very funny filth with beautiful comedy timing. As even Louis C.K. admits: You can't go wrong with a fart joke.

MARCH 2017
--- "H.G. Wells once said, 'The study of Nature makes a man at last as remorseless as Nature.' Another smart guy named Nietchze also once famously said, '...if you gaze long enough into the abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.' Although, to my knowledge, neither one of these guys ever served a day in prison, both quotes are equally applicable to life no matter your Nature or no matter what abyss you gaze into every day." Jeffrey P. Frye looks into existentialism, something he's forced - or enforced - to do every day. The results in Gazing Into The Abyss are great, so read 'em.

--- Time for some free Java from the Chupa Chava, courtesy of Jeff in one of his funniest stories.
--- Working on six books for release in 2017: Saint of the City, The Savage Kick #8, Blossoms and Blood, Savage Kick #9, and a coupla of surprises...

--- Jeffrey P. Frye puts his positive spin on the US Election and on life in general. And, as he says, who better to comment on US Politics that a convicted bank robber? Divided We Stand welcomes in 2017.
