At The Slaughtered Bird, I attempted to interview Adam Howe, author of such books as Die Dog or Eat the Hatchet and Tijuana Donkey Showdown. I say “attempted to,” because Howe is…well, just look at this quote from Howe:
Cleanup on Aisle 3 was inspired by my favorite Elmore Leonard book, Swag. During a scene in which our characters rob a liquor store, I thought: What if this happened? And took it from there. It was first published in Todd Robinson’s crime magazine, Thuglit, and has been reprinted several times since then. I think it’s an effective cat-and-mouse suspense story with a nasty horror sting in the tail. If it didn’t meet your high standards, Dubrow, I can only assume that’s because it DOESN’T feature bestiality.
If you’d like to see such a “powerful” author abuse a well-intentioned interviewer like myself, click to read the whole thing.
