Cincinnati, 1942. The secret to being a grifter is changing up the con so the rubes don’t realize they’re being taken. Kissy Lisbon’s spent years honing her skills as a con-woman, but as the war in Europe drags on, things get tough in the Queen City. Her new scheme: hiring herself out as a private eye. Her first client has a missing daughter, the missing daughter has a German boyfriend, and the German boyfriend has friends in all the wrong places. Following a lead sends Kissy careening headlong into a whirlwind of stolen money, American Nazis, and bleeding corpses. When an old flame from Kissy’s past shows up wearing a shiny new detective’s badge, she’s less than thrilled, but together they scour the city for answers. As the bodies start to pile up around her, Kissy is in a race to save the missing girl, her country, and her very life.

Presenting the cover for Strangely Funny III, envisioned by the talented Gary Piserchio. Follow this page for updates on the fourth book in the Strangely Funny series, featuring stories from Daniel Hale, David Bernard, Kevin Wetmore, and Elizabeth Barden.
Our victim was spread too awkwardly on the floor for him to have been simply knocked out by a piece of falling debris. He could have died from the smoke, but the fire had not traveled much beyond the bed. I cleaned the grime from my own spectacles with my handkerchief and moved to where I could examine him more closely. That’s when I saw the bullet holes. One entered through the back of his head, ranged downward, and removed the lower portion of his face. The other shot had been fired into his back.
Get ready for the long-awaited sequel to Gwen Mayo's first novel! We'll be launching it in the next few days.
This book has been a long time coming. Gwen's work on Concealed in Ash was interrupted when we made a radical life change - moving from Kentucky to Florida - due to life circumstances. But it was only an interruption, and we're pleased to share the good news with you!
Stay tuned for more information.
“Buy The Bastard a brandy, an’ he might jus’ tell you a tale ’bout this town…”
Kramusville is a town with a long and bloody history. When Paul and Fitz arrive on foot, desperate for shelter, they only find one place that appears to be open – The Finger Inn. There’s a train in the morning, but during the long night they hear the Tales of The Bastard Drunk. Tales filled with depravity and gore, each worse than the one before. They pray for the dawn to come, so they can leave – but will Kramusville let them go?
Stories like "Vannigan’s Grudge", "Mr. Creeper", and "Clean Up On Aisle Gore" are darker than anything we've previously published. Warning: this novella contains violence, blood, and extreme sexual content.
Print copies of Tales of the Bastard Drunk are now available for preorder (domestic only) through our site. The Kindle version will be available on Amazon.com shortly.
About the Author:
An avid reader from an early age, one of D.M. Woon's earliest memories of writing was of completing the remaining pages of a scrapbook filled with short stories cut from a magazine, and adopting the style of the authors. A fan of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps series and Louise Cooper’s Creatures, it wasn't long before he began to write his own collection of short horror stories.
D.M. Woon has a first-class Bachelor of Arts (Hons) degree in Creative and Professional Writing. Since graduating, Woon has had two further pieces of work published: a 100 word drabble called ‘Stains’, and the popular short story ‘Saturday the Eighth’ which features in Necro Publications’ anthology Into The Darkness. The written ‘voice’ Woon assumed for the piece, and the response he received, inspired him to write Tales of The Bastard Drunk. Learn more about D.M. Woon from his blog and Facebook author page.
On Monday, we'll be doing another cover reveal... but for a much darker work than anything MAHLLC has published before. Definitely not for the faint of heart or the easily shocked!
Because one book wasn't big enough to contain the insanity! Seventeen MORE tales of supernatural hilarity from new authors and previous Strangely Funny favorites. Strangely Funny 2 1/2 is now available for preorder (domestic only) through our site.
The cover art was done by Monstermatt Patterson, author/artist of Ha-Ha! Horror, mad podcast punster, and the 2014 Winner in Artvoice's "Best of Buffalo" Awards (Best Painter).
