I’m sure David’s not the only guy

that can fill that hole… In fact, it doesn’t need to be a guy, per se… Theoretically you could stick just about anything up there that’s not too big.

While He Was Away by Karen Schreck

A sample of the “burgeoning genre of literature about the Iraq war”.

[The Wharf] now available on Amazon Kindle Store for Mac, PC, Android, iPad, iPhone, etc.!

My first completed work of fiction, which I penned with best friend and partner-in-crime Jesse Bull, is now for sale on Amazon.com.

Here’s a brief product description:

“Tokyo, 2034 A.D. Japan has finally relaxed her borders to allow an overdue influx of immigration, and with it subsequent street crime and true multilingual diversity. The world’s first transition to an entirely cashless banking system has created a society completely reliant on the Personal Life Assistant™, or PLA, a mobile device that acts as phone, wallet, keys, identification and more. Over the course of roughly one week a story of technological security, financial terrorism and socioeconomic upheaval unfolds around a small cast of characters, including J., an American banker, Sana, a female television personality, and Shade, an underground tech kingpin shrouded in mystery. The Wharf is a subversive, parodical black comedy and also a classic crime novel penned by two Americans with a combined twelve years’ experience working, studying and living in Japan.”

[The Wharf] is available for purchase for $2.99 for your PC, tablet, smart phone, etc. here.

Thank you for reading and for your continual support!

“Imbibe!” by David Wondrich [2007]

Imbibe! by David Wondrich

Now reading Imbibe! From Absinthe Cocktail to Whiskey Smash, a Salute in Stories and Drinks to “Professor” Jerry Thomas, Pioneer of the American Bar., David Wondrich’s “lively” guide to the history of American mixology. Wondrich tracks the exploits and recipes of larger-than-life barman Jerry Thomas and his “sporting” fraternity in a billowy, regal writing style that clearly shows Wondrich’s passion and also his enamoration for his subject(s). Favorite line so far:

“You were rich, you were broke, you were rich again–sometimes all on the same day. For the Victorians, money was an object. For the Sports, it was a process.”

Imbibe!, p. 24
