Sucker Punch Gala in NYC

If you were in NYC on June 15th and missed the BLACK SCAT SUCKER PUNCH bout between high lit  heavyweight champs Yuriy Tarnawsky (seated)) and Alain Arias-Mission —shame on you! You missed a bloody good reading.

The Emily Harvey Foundation. provided ringside seats,  booze & noisemakers  to an unruly crowd of fans. Tarnawsky threw wicked upper-cuts from his classic collection of “short shrift fictions,” CROCODILE SMILES, while Arias-Misson responded with  a blazing left hook from his new novel THE DETECTIVE WHO DIDN’T HAVE A CLUE.

Fortunately all is not lost, as both books are available on Amazon and just a click away.

“THAT REGRETTABLE WEEKEND”

Black Scat author and translator Doug Skinner has just released his new album—THAT REGRETTABLE WEEKEND—featuring 21 songs that will make you laugh, cry in your beer, feel  nostalgic for old New York and those better (some might say bitter) days that never existed. Golden vocals with traces of dark humor and a haunting uke conspire to lull one down a slippery slope.

Take a listen to the title cut:

You can purchase the full digital album for only $9, or nab your favorite tracks for a buck.

Watch for THE DOUG SKINNER SONGBOOK coming later this year.
