SCAT TRAX, the audio arm of Black Scat Books, is proud to present the exclusive World Premiere of The Wayward Lady—an experimental soundtrack by DrG Supreme. This noirish mind-mix is a warped walk on the wild side (some might say “the other side”) … a trip down strange aural corridors where wanton giggles erupt and vanish – replaced by pauses so pregnant you’ll swear sextuplets are on the way. Clicks and coughs collide, bounce and drift in spirals of nasty laughter. And that music..what the hell is THAT? Maybe we’re in a cocktail lounge in Schenectady or, more likely, Madrid. Suddenly a grunt of passion is snuffed by the sound of footsteps. Who’s knocking at the door? An irate cuckold? A cop on the make? Or a voluptuous mistress bent on revenge?…
The plot is locked away in your imagination.

Here’s a treat for the holidays — an advance excerpt from Alphonse Allais’s THE SQUADRON’S UMBRELLA (Le parapluie de l’escouade)—a collection of 39 humorous texts never before published in English, and translated from the French by Doug Skinner. We hope you enjoy.
The Easter holiday was favored with exceptional weather. On Sunday and Monday, numerous Parisians took advantage of it to travel, with their families, into the country.
The amount of ham and cold veal that they consumed, on the grass, was practically prodigious.
The Journal’s record keepers, assigned specially to this statistic, report a truly extraordinary result: 740,000 tons! A number which, we believe, has not been equalled since the summer of 1879.
This year, give the gift of brazen balderdash. Over 125 pages of utter nonsense by Jake Alexander, Alphonse Allais, Alain Arias-Misson, Mark Axelrod, Paulo Brito, Norman Conquest, Farewell Debut, Fiona Duffin, Tom La Farge, Allen Forrest, Ryan Forsythe, Eckhard Gerdes, Rhys Hughes, Janne Karlsson, Teri Lee Kline, Richard Kostelanetz, Jhaki M.S. Landgrebe, Michael Leigh, Terri Lloyd, David Macpherson, Samantha Memi, Monika Mori, Yarrow Paisley, Sheila Pell, Jason E. Rolfe, Doug Skinner, Wendy Walker, Carla M. Wilson, and D. Harlan Wilson.

The erotic novella L’ange de toutes choses originally appeared in a small press edition in Paris in 2012. Published under the pseudonymous initials “C.A.,” the work received several favorable reviews as well as the usual condemnation reserved for works in this arena. (Despite its enlightened reputation, France today is surprisingly puritanical.) The book was compared to the early works of Marguerite Duras.
