The Collected Works of Scott McClanahan Vol. 1 by Scott McClanahan

8 Jan

Scott-McClanahan-Collected Works“Scott McClanahan is a powerful, exceptional writer, and the overall effect of reading his deceptively simple stories is like getting hit in the head by a champion cage fighter cranked up on meth that was cooked in a trailer without running water in some Kentucky backwoods where people sing murder ballads to their children to put them to sleep.” – DONALD RAY POLLOCK, author of The Devil All the Time

“He might be one of the great southern storytellers of our time.” – VOL. 1 BROOKLYN

“When I discovered the stories of Scott McClanahan last year, I was instantly enthralled with his natural storytelling voice and freaky funny tales. There’s no pretense to Scott’s work. It’s like you’re just dropped right into the middle of these fantastic and true stories. It’s like a sweet blend of my favorite southern writers, Larry Brown and Harry Crews. Reading McClanahan is like listening to a good friend telling you his best real-life stories on your back porch on a humid night. And you both got a nice whiskey buzz going.” – KEVIN SAMPSELL, author of A Common Pornography

“McClanahan’s prose is unfettered and kinetic and his stories seem like a hyper-modern iteration of local color fiction. His delivery is guileless and his morality ambivalent and you get the sense, while reading him, that he is sitting next to you on a barstool, eating peanuts and drinking a beer, and intermittently getting up to pick a song on the jukebox.” – THE RUMPUS

“Reads like Bukowski with more surprises.” – IMPOSE MAGAZINE

The Shape of Every Monster Yet to Come_cover

In his latest book, Brian Allen Carr introduces us to a cast of characters trapped in the present, haunted by their pasts, staring down a path paved in blood. This is, quite frankly, the most powerful book we have read all year. Brian Allen Carr is a slayer, and here he is at the top of his game.

Lazy Fascist Fall 2012 Releases

4 Nov



Chick Bassist is utterly savage. Lockhart’s style waxes poetic as a modern Beat giving us a glimpse into Rock & Roll hell.” – Laird Barron, Shirley Jackson Award-winning author of Occultation and The Croning

Erin Locke, the Queen of Rock, wakes up at the crack of noon.

“La Cucaracha” has infested her dream, and now echoes through her hotel room. “What the fuck is that?” Erin’s voice is muffled by the thick blankets that completely cover her. Beside the lump that is Erin lies a black Ibanez bass guitar. A Heroes for Goats sticker adorns its reflective surface. Erin thrusts one arm out from beneath the blankets and fumbles for the nonexistent alarm clock. She’s still slogging off fragments of her dream, that goddamn recurrent creep-out where she’s a praying mantis, translucent green, perched on the crest of a burning city, devouring her still-copulating preymate. This time her meal had worn her father’s face. Those dreams were the worst.

Chick Bassist welcomes you into punk rock hell, the friendless disillusionment of waking up in a shitty motel room in California with half a joint and an empty six-pack, radio blaring Lou Reed, concrete ocean on all sides and a blazing inferno within.

“Crime and horror wrapped in a wondrous symmetry, made all the more terrifying by its factual basis, A Parliament of Crows has it all. Read it!”F. PAUL WILSON, New York Times bestselling author of Cold City

Murder, fraud, suicide, war, isolation, madness, duty, pride, love, loyalty.

From World Fantasy Award winner Alan M. Clark comes a godforsaken southern gothic based on the three most evil sisters in history. They are the Mortlow sisters, and they do it all for the family.


“There are plenty of bastards in this world, but Patrick Wensink isn’t one of them. Well, maybe. He is our Terry Southern and Paul Krassner and possibly one day even our own Jonathan Swift…” – SCOTT MCCLANAHAN, author of The Collected Works of Scott McClanahan Vol. I

“I’ve never known an American economy that didn’t smell like Red Lobster’s dumpster,” begins Patrick Wensink’s (bestselling author of Broken Piano for President) long-awaited essay collection

Zipping together heartbreak and hilarity in one neat package, this book is one man’s journey along the front lines of America’s economic nightmare. These nonfiction pieces feature Wensink selling his own BBQ sauce, tying the knot in a doughnut shop, getting fired from more jobs than most hold in a lifetime and struggling to make ends meet as a stay-at-home-dad.

In the end, Wensink perseveres in typical self deprecating fashion, chronicling his unexpected rise to bestseller status when Broken Piano for President goes viral thanks to the World’s Nicest Cease and Desist from Jack Daniel’s.

These essays originally appeared in Huffington Post, Thought Catalog, and more.
