Our Fearless Leader Jacob Weisman and his trusty co-conspirator David Sandner are launching their brand new title, HELLHOUNDS, published by Fairwood Press! The authors will be in-store and signing, along with editor Leslie Klinger, at Dark Delicacies on Saturday Nov 12, at 3PM.
In this sequel to the novelette Mingus Fingers, authors David Sandner and Jacob Weisman follow Kenny, a talented musician who learned from jazz great Charles Mingus how to “play in the soul.” Kenny has always had an affinity for rabbits and butterflies, believing that butterflies are broken souls waiting to return. When Kenny goes missing, his brother’s search leads him to the cold, dark shadows of spirit and music…Kenny’s brother must put his trust in his belief that the music of the living may be the only way to transform and bring back a spirit of the dead.
