All Hail The House Gods should be on your radar, says LitReactor

One of Rooster Republic’s summer titles just got a little shout out over at LitReactor (courtesy of Gabino Iglesias) and we couldn’t be happier. Andrew James Stone’s sophomore effort, All Hail The House Gods, is an anxious little page-turner and a very interesting spin on the dystopian science-fiction narrative.

The poetry of Christoph Paul

At Least I Get You < In My Art has been a long-gestating labor of love for Christoph Paul, and we’re fortunate enough to be bringing it to you. Here’s a look at the wrap:

At least I Get You wrap

“…a hard fuck, a weird kiss, a sad goodbye,” says Lisa Marie Basile.

And if that isn’t a top-shelf pull quote, then I don’t know what to tell you. Damn.

New work from John Bruni coming in May 2018!

This will be a quick post. Just a taste . . . of Bruni.

John Bruni. His newest title, Blood, should be live in May. And it’s a helluva book. A little bit crime, a little bit demons, and a fine smattering of violence. But let’s take a look at that cover, shall we? This one comes courtesy of the very, very talented Matt Andrew.

Just look at this beast . . .

Sorry, Wrong Country: Author Q&A

Rooster Republic wanted to try something a little different, so when Konstantine Paradias approached us with Sorry, Wrong Country, his non-fiction memoir about life in modern Greece, it was a total no-brainer to pick it up and add it to this year’s roster of titles.

And what a book! We love this book. And we think you’ll love it, too. It’s already gotten a pretty great review from the folks over at Geek Nerdery. Here’s a little pull quote (click the quote to see the full review at their site):

“It was an absolute blast getting to know these strangers in their quick vignettes, and with what little time the reader gets to spend with each of them, Paradias deftly paints and precise picture of who these people are and where they place in the tapestry of human existence.”

Konstantine was a good sport and to help kick off this new release, we put a whole bunch of questions to him and got a whole bunch of answers (including his pizza crust preference) in return. Read on!

Andrew Hook’s “Top 10” film list

rooster_vision_logo-6

Andrew Hook’s RoosterVision title has been getting a lot of good press, including a shout out in Black Static magazine.

Here’s what they had to say about Buñuel’s The Exterminating Angel: A Personal Analysis:

“The personal stories that he adds, showing how the film affected his writing and remembrances of catching it on late night terrestrial television (as did I myself, back in the day), all help to ground the work and illuminate why it is so important to the writer. It is this personal slant I feel that puts clear water between books like this and the more objective Auteur volumes. At the end, for anyone who has seen the film, their appreciation will almost certainly be deepened by the light Hook shines on unfamiliar corners of the screen, while those who have never encountered Buñuel’s work will probably be encouraged to seek it out, which is a big part of what books like this are really all about, but either way you will have been entertained and enlightened.”

Because he is such a good sport, Andrew has agreed to put together a personal top-10 movie list for Rooster Republic. This will (hopefully) be a recurring item as authors lend their work to the RoosterVision line of books.

Read on to find out what Andrew considers his personal top-10!
