Today Flash Fiction Offensive is duly pleased to announce the coronation of Authors on the Air host Pam Stack as a "Gutter Gal." Heavy is the head that wears the crown, they say. But we believe this Goddess can handle our distinguished "honorific." After all, she survived her 1,000th radio interview with crime writer Beau Johnson last year (though we still don't know if Beau was wearing any pants ... despite the fuss he went to picking the "right" tie). And any woman who typically reads 400 books a year shouldn't have much problem rolling in a little dirt! She also grew up in Miami don't you know. So surely there's gotta be some skeletons in her closet!
While we could prattle about Pam all day, instead we'd like to introduce one of her latest radio guests, author and book reviewer Gabriel Valjan. Winter Goose Publishing released Mr. Valjan's historical crime fiction mystery THE NAMING GAME (THE COMPANY FILES book 2) in early May.
Since Gabriel’s book centers on the troublesome death of Hollywood script-fixer Charlie Loew—who’s corpse is discovered in a seedy flophouse, with a cryptic list wrapped inside a handkerchief—we think it’s only fitting to feature Gabriel Valjin here in The Gutter as well.
Anyone with an interest can listen to Pam and Gabriel's Soundcloud broadcast by tapping or clicking here. We also truly hope you'll say hello to both.
