The Kindle re-releases of the first three Jack Keller novels by J.D. Rhoades (with snazzy new covers) are set to drop January 6th from Polis Books and the all-new fourth volume, Devils and Dust, releases February 15th in hardcover.
Gary Phillips’ graphic novel, The Rinse, about a money launderer, has been optioned for TV. A showrunner is attached and he’s currently writing the pilot script. Note: this doesn’t mean the show is a go, but it does mean some spending money for Xmas. Exciting!
Gary also continues to write his weekly webserial about a working class handyman uncle, his grown niece, an Iraq war vet, and nephew, a former pro baller prospect in the Dixon Family Chronicles on the capital and main site. He’ll also have a short story in the hyper-attenuated vein of a Sin City vignette in the upcoming 50 Shades of a Fedora anthology the Private Eye Writers of America is putting out through the Dagger Books imprint in February – to coincide with the release of the, ah, anticipated 50 Shades of Gray film.
