The New Black Debut

By Naomi Huffman

Curbside Splendor announces the release of the first book from imprint Dark House Press, The New Black: A Neo-Noir Anthology edited by Richard Thomas. 

The New Black debuted at #2 in the United States Literary Anthology category for Kindle, and #11 in the United States Literary Anthology category for print books. 

Stephen Graham Jones, whose story "Father, Son, Holy Rabbit" starts the collection, described The New Black thusly:

"The New Black lives. The New Black has a red cover that's not cherry wood but muscle tissue, up close. The New Black has all these twisted people inside like almost-dead sardines, staring up out of the pages with lidless eyes. The New Black will drip blood if you press it hard enough against a wall. The New Black will drip ink into your head if you open your eyes to it. The New Black anagrams to something eldritch and arcane. The New Black is a steady murmur. You can hear it now. Listen."

Horoscopes - May 2014

By Zach Medearis

 

Aries- You always thought that your greatness would never be understood in your time. The lack of attendance at your funeraI used to be a professionally untrained astrologist. My last batch of horoscopes in 2011 was denied by the Chicago Tribune.l, following a painful battle with testicular cancer, shows that even in death people genuinely don't really like you. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Taur
us- All of your hard-work, extra hours at the office and constant willingness to impress your superiors will pay off this week when you are promoted to the official position of head fluffer.
Gemini- Your creativity and ingenuity will show in your invention of a less gay looking feather-duster.
 Cancer- Despite all of the pitfalls endured to prove your theory, with a can do attitude you finally showed that attractive neighbor of yours that 'No" actually means 'Yes'.
Leo- People have always judged you based on your appearance.

Announcing DOES NOT LOVE by James Tadd Adcox

By Naomi Huffman

James Tadd Adcox Curbside SplendorWe're pleased (read: absolutely thrilled) to be releasing Does Not Love, a novel by James Tadd Adcox, this October. 

Here's what we're so excited about:

Set in an archly comedic, alternate-reality Indianapolis that is completely overrun by Big Pharma, James Tadd Adcox's debut novel Does Not Love chronicles Robert and Viola's attempts to overcome loss through the miracles of modern pharmaceuticals. Their marriage crumbling after a series of miscarriages, Viola finds herself in an affair with the FBI agent who has recently appeared at her workplace, while her husband Robert becomes enmeshed in an elaborate conspiracy designed to look like a drug study.
