Biographies of Comedians
Did you hear the one about the naughty kid who became a comedian?
In this book you will learn that despite a lot of efforts from the powers that be, and my own outrageous behaviour for me to not even exist in this life, I actually, through blood, sweat and tears have survived to tell the tale.
I know we all dream of having the perfect child, but I was far from this. In fact I was a mischievous daredevil who would do anything for a laugh and some pocket money to buy a packet of fags. In layman terms, as a kid I was a little shit, as you will discover in the early chapters.
You will see that my early life, a far from normal start, paved the way for me to take stupidity and danger into my life as a comedian and entertainer.

LGBT Fantasy

It’s not easy being someone’s fairy tale.

Leigh Hurley is making a name for himself among thieves and criminals, even if it isn’t the life he would’ve chosen. He shouldn’t have screwed over the Moretti brothers, though. It landed him in the river with weights on his feet. But somehow he’s escaped certain death. The last thing he remembers before waking on the riverbank is a beautiful face and a soft kiss.

Then, Tolomeo turns up naked at Leigh’s apartment.

Tolly comes from a race of killers—merfolk who drown humans for fun. But Tolly is different, and when he sees a human in trouble, he offers a kiss, granting the man the ability to breathe underwater… and himself the ability to walk on land, at least until the next full moon. The ancient laws state that if he is given a vow of love by the one he kissed, he will be able to keep his legs. If not, he will be put to death when he returns to the water.

Noir Crime

Lost for more than 75 years, The Knife Slipped was meant to be the second book in the series, but shelved when Gardner’s publisher objected to (among other things) Bertha Cool’s tendency to “talk tough, swear, smoke cigarettes, and try to gyp people.” But this tale of adultery and corruption, of double-crosses and triple identities—however shocking for 1939—shines today as a glorious present from the past, a return to the heyday of private eyes and shady dames, of powerful criminals, crooked cops, blazing dialogue, and delicious plot twists.

Donald Lam has never been cooler—not even when played by Frank Sinatra on the U.S. Steel Hour of Mystery in 1946. Bertha Cool has never been tougher. And Erle Stanley Gardner has never been better.
