Rogue is available in Print and in Kindle. It hosts a range of very talented authors bringing you the best in dirty, sordid, hard boiled crime tales… from the maggot infested belly of a society.
Mark Wilson has this to say:
Unlike most anthologies, Rogue leads the reader through a series of torrid, murky dirty trysts, each refreshing and building your interest as a new writer takes the lead and pulls you through this filthy little journey.
He also wrote our foreword:
The things you think, the mood you’re in the food you eat, the booze you drink, the people you wanna fuck. All streamed and shat disdainfully down at and to you by men in suits who control the art, the music and the literature you consume. The great con? You’re convinced that you have a free choice. That your outlook, taste and choices are random…are yours.
The book you’re holding in your hands, flipping across your screen or pirating, is a bold statement by a group of authors who are committed to controlling their own literary destinies. To representing themselves and their stories the way they want to. To producing quality literature without constraints, or middle-management foibles, or decisions based on what will appeal to this demographic or best reflect that group. To give you raw, uncompromising stories from the depths of their filthy imaginations. More punk than Cowell-esque candy pop, this collection captures a group of writers, writing in a spectacularly diverse myriad of styles at the very top of their game. You can feel the enthusiasm for the project and the license they’ve been given to indulge themselves laser from the page.
These men and women, these Indie-writers, have jabbed a metaphorical mid-digit at an industry too enamoured with money and derivative diluted-down novels, and collected into this astounding anthology a hurricane of unique and distinct voices, deliciously, grubby, violent and uncompromising in each of their contributions. No money-men, no committees, just the desire, the skill and the talent to bring you a collection of depraved, emotionally-draining, twisted and deliciously funny tales from their black hearts.
Darren Sant, Craig Douglas and Ryan Bracha have built solidly on the foundations of their first Near to the Knuckle anthology, bringing together not just some of the most distinct voices on the Indie-Scene but also in presenting their work so professionally.
Near to the Knuckle is a big fuck you to the traditional publishing biz and a wonderfully diverse sample of the finest Indie-writers currently strutting the scene.
