Joseph G. Peterson

We're thrilled to announce that we'll be publishing Joseph G. Peterson's excellent Gunmetal Blue in November!

We (the royal we, you know, the editorial...) met Joe at Book Cellar's Local Authors Night way way back in 2014 or so, and we did the responsible good support-the-local-scene thing and checked out his book (albeit on Kindle), and we're glad we did, because he's a tremendous Chicago voice, a truly inimitable chronicler of the lovable ne'er-do-well. We've since read everything he's written, and picking favorites is tough, but for our money, the best of his published work is probably Wanted: Elevator Man. Still, there's a new contender waiting in the wings--and we get to coach this one along!

You should read his other stuff in the meantime. For real, though!
