Through the miracle of synchronicity, I have two (count 'em, two!!!) new books scheduled to be published in the first week of April. On April 6th, my second novel (BELA LUGOSI'S DEAD) will be published by Crossroad Press. Only a few days earlier, on the first of April, a collection of novellas entitled WIDOW OF THE AMPUTATION & OTHER WEIRD CRIMES will be unleashed by Eraserhead Press

Here's the pitch:

WIDOW OF THE AMPUTATION & OTHER WEIRD CRIMES is a collection of four novellas that explore the madness of murder through the warped lenses of urban noir, science fiction, horror, and experimental fantasy.

In DECAY IN AMBER, a convicted rapist and murderer wakes up one morning to discover he is only six inches tall and floating down the middle of the L.A. River in a beer bottle. In ROCKET CITY MURDER, a police lieutenant has only twenty-four hours to solve a brutal triple-murder committed within the secretive confines of the bio warfare research lab known as Micropolis. In WIDOW OF THE AMPUTATION, the mythologies of various cultures collide as Charles Manson succeeds in busting out of Corcoran Penitentiary. And in YOU MIGHT AS WELL DIE, a crime noir writer is led into a clever cat-and-mouse game intended to frame him for a murder he himself unknowingly devised.

"Guffey is my kind of crazy. He understands that the universe is preposterous, life is improbable, and chaos rules: get used to it." -Pat Cadigan, author of MINDPLAYERS

"Robert Guffey's writing has impressed, entertained, and enlightened me pretty much since I first met him. My suggestion? If he wrote it, read it." - Jack Womack, author of RANDOM ACTS OF SENSELESS VIOLENCE

"A playful amalgam of Andy Kaufman and Philip K. Dick..." - Damien Lincoln Ober, author of DOCTOR BENJAMIN FRANKLIN'S DREAM AMERICA

Directly below you'll see the stunning cover, as designed by the incomparable Matthew Revert....
