This week, I have not one, not two, but three new releases to tell you about. And they’re all volumes of Smith’s Monthly!
That’s right, we have a Smith’s Monthly trifecta. Volumes 31-33, in fact. And they feature not only more than a dozen short stories among them, but more installments in the serialized novel Laying the Music to Rest and three novels: the first novel in the brand-new Mary Jo Assassin series, a short novel from Dean’s fan-favorite Poker Boy universe, and the latest entry in the popular Thunder Mountain series.
Here are the tables of contents for this powerhouse lineup:
Gods Have History: A Poker Boy Story
A Long Ways Down: A Bryant Street Story
The Case of the Man Who Saw: A Pilgrim Hugh Incident
A Bad Day for the Dream: A Cold Poker Gang Story
Playing in the Street
Death Takes a Partner: A Mary Jo Assassin Novel
A Bad Patch of Humanity: A Seeders Universe Story
A Great First Day: A Ghost of a Chance Story
The Problem of Grapevine Springs: A Thunder Mountain Story

An Obscene Crime Against Passion: A Bryant Street Story

If you’re new to the concept of Smith’s Monthly, let me explain. Every month (yes, every month), Dean publishes an entire magazine full of his fiction and nonfiction, including short stories, serialized books, nonfiction books, and even the occasional poem or two.
You can read more about how to subscribe to Smith’s Monthly here. But let me just say that at $6.99 for an ebook and $12.99 for paperback (even less for subscribers), it’s a steal.
So, go on. Get reading. And reading. And reading…
