British author and elderblogger Michael Allen, a.k.a. the Grumpy Old Bookman, has just released Lucius the Club. It’s a new 48-page crime story available as a free CC-licensed PDF and a €4 chapbook from Lulu. I haven’t read it yet, but I’ve enjoyed his other recent fiction very much and I follow his blog on a daily basis.
Get the file and read a few pages! What have you got to lose?
Update 21 March: Read it yesterday on my handheld. Excellent work, evoking a very English world of post-war kitchen-sink noir.
