Tough Guys

(2016)
A collection of stories by

 
Adrian's latest collection, Tough Guys, contains three previously unpublished novellas and a short. Based on the title theme, these four works are completely different in subject matter and tone.
There is, of course, A Nick Nightmare story herein, 'Wait for the Ricochet', in which the gumshoe is entrusted to convey a message about "The Malleus Tenebrarum", a book that names the properties and powers of dark and light, to the Mechanic, one Oil-Gun Eddy... His adversary is the sinister Lucien de Sangreville, plus assorted non-human denizens of the murky lower levels, and his sidekick the sword-wielding business-woman Ariadne Carnadine. In contrast, in 'If You Don't Eat Your Meat' the reader enters a post-apocalyptic world where the very unsavoury Ryan relates his story of rival families and cannibalism. It is gruesome and unflinching horror. In 'A Smell of Burning' a hospital patient finds he is having out-of-the-body experiences. On his astral journeys he visits a man recalling his abused childhood and this leads to a shocking revelation... Finally, 'Not If You Want to Live' explores the fate of Razorjack, who is a Redeemer, a dead man used by a shady organisation to bring back others from death. An intriguing and engrossing story of love between Razorjack (aka Jack Krane) and mobster's moll Rebecca Fellini, with science fictional and satanic elements.
