Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat - Book Club July '11


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

July's Book Club selection is:

Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat by Andrez Bergen.

Kristopher Young will be pushing the discussion forward. And Andrez will also be taking part.

I know that a lot of people have already read this and are really looking forward to discussing it. It's a fun book. And fans of noir will love it, as well as all of the noir movie references in it.

Here's the description:

Cut to Melbourne, Australia–the most glamorous city in the world. It also happens to be the only one left standing, but nevermind that, we’re there now and I’d like you to meet your narrator, a certain Floyd Maquina, a likable chap with one hell of a story to share. See, the powers that be are knuckling down on the Deviant menace that plagues the city, and our boy Floyd’s unknowingly got himself in the thick of it. Cue guns, intrigue, kidnappings, conspiracy and all sorts of general mayhem that make for cracking good headlines.

Does Floyd stop the bad guys? Does he get the girl? Does he make Humphrey Bogart proud? Grab some popcorn and read on.

You can buy it from amazon - HERE

Or stop by the publisher's site - Another Sky Press

And one quick question from me before the discussion starts - How many of you watched any of the movies recommended at the end of the book? And what movies did you watch?

Oh, and, get to reading!
