Happy October to all our grindhouse ghouls and goblins out there. To mark what is historically a big month for Daily Grindhouse, we’ve got some historically big stuff planned for you.
On the Daily Grindhouse Patreon today, we are premiering a full-length novella for you to read, exclusively.
MIRACLE ON 42nd STREET is written by Andrew Allan, a successful independent author and filmmaker who also happens to be Daily Grindhouse’s owner. Andrew’s usual lane is Florida crime but for this story, he takes a detour to Manhattan’s own 42nd Street, before the Disney makeover. If you liked Joe Lansdale’s Drive-In saga (and why the hell wouldn’t you?) or more recently, Preston Fassel’s Our Lady Of The Inferno, you’ll definitely dig this book.
Special’s a working girl trying to scratch out a living on 42nd Street, the sleaziest strip in America. No pimp, no problem — she can handle herself. But when her friend gets butchered, and an eyewitness dishes the details, Special begs her city official clients to track down the killer. That’s when they try to kill her.
Now Special’s on the run from the ugly truth: the cops are making the city safe by exterminating the prostitutes, pimps, thugs, gangsters, dealers, muggers, and junkies. And the only way she can survive is by teaming up with a drunk Santa to unleash anarchy. Down on the Deuce, anything can happen. But survival is never easy. And this time it’s gonna take a miracle…
The book will be up on Daily Grindhouse’s Patreon all October long. If you want more than that, you’re gonna have to pay for it, as they once said on 42nd Street.
And while I have you, please do consider subscribing to Daily Grindhouse on Patreon. It’s only $3 a month. One price fits all. We’re not doing any tiers. We just really think it’s long past time we find a way to pay our writers, so we can keep on bringing you killer reading material damn near every day of the year. We’re a small operation and we don’t have any big donors or advertisers, so any support we can get is valued and treasured, and we will pay our readers back fiercely with coolness.
To prove our value and to give you an idea of what you’re missing out on by not subscribing, we will release a ton of articles and reviews that have so far only been on our Patreon. If you like what you see, please consider joining us!
Thanks for reading, and enjoy October at Daily Grindhouse, the time of year where even the most heroic of vigilantes go a little dark in the spirit of the season.
