Brit Grit Alley

Brit Grit Alley features news and updates on what's happening down British crime fiction's booze and blood soaked alleyways.

By Paul D. Brazill
Ciao! This week we’re taking a Brit Grit Alley booze – cruise to Italy, where ATLANTIS eBooks have launched a funky new website and a host of new titles. ATLANTIS is the dark spawn of Lite Editions, a highly successful publisher of erotic eBooks. With Atlantis, publishers Lorenzo Mazzoni and Marco Belli decided to produce a series of noir novelettes, taking place in various cities around the world.

Contributors to the series so far include Brit Grit and dark fiction writer Richard Godwin, whose lyrical and delirious The Secret Hour takes place in London. His follow up to The Secret Hour is called The Edge Of Desire and is set in Paris.
Here’s the blurb:
‘Paris Tongue is back with the sequel of The Secret Hour! From the pen of Richard Godwin a new perfect sexy noir set in France’s capital city ... Not to be missed.’
Making his Atlantis debut with Lotus Blue is A.J. Savage ‘a writer who was born in England and lives in Japan. His writing has been published in True Brit Grit and Pulp Metal Magazine.
Here’s blurb:
‘Thailand is a loser's paradise. Harry Marx is picking up the pieces of his life and looking for inspiration in the land of smiles. He finds it in Lotus Blue. But she is not what she seems to be. A sordid tale of brutal betrayal and a savage short story from A.J. Savage.’
And I’ve got a follow up to my Red Esperanto story called Death On A Hot Afternoon.
Here’s the blurb:
After Red Esperanto, Luke Case, freelance journalist, moves to Madrid from Warsaw. From the pen of Paul D. Brazill, a new short story as noir as ever.’

The novelettes are all available in Italian and  English from ATLANTIS or the various Amazons and Barnes & Noble type places around the world. Ciao!
See you soon, same Brit Grit Time, same Brit Grit Channel.
