Order These New Titles For 2008

Laughin' Boy:
Bradley Denton.

In May of 2000, a group of masked paramilitary gunmen opens fire on the crowd at an outdoor festival in Wichita, Kansas, killing 86 people. Danny Clayton, innocent bystander, is caught on video laughing in the midst of the carnage. Thereafter, dubbed "Laughin' Boy" he becomes the focal point for the nation's rage and horror at the event. Unable to stop laughing, he is left little choice but to enter "treatment" with a pair of celebrity psychiatrists. But, of course, in Bradley Denton's dark comedy, nothing is quite what it seems.

Although the first edition of this novel (a limited edition hardcover from Subterranean Press) appeared in 2005 and this trade paperback edition is appearing from Wheatland Press in 2008, the text was completed (except for minor revisions) prior to September 11, 2001.

Can't Buy Me Faded Love:
Josh Rountree.

"Josh Rountree's writing came down on me like the Assyrian on the fold."
-- Howard Waldrop

Tune in to a Left of the Dial version of the world, where sixties icons wage a war of ideals in their mutual struggle to free America from Nazi oppression; where the Beatles never happened, but John Lennon still claimed a musical destiny; where even the most well-intentioned muse can lead you astray. This is a world of post-apocalyptic record reviewers and misfit musicians fighting against a virtual Hell on earth. This is a world where the ghosts of dead rock stars sing along with us one more time. Can't Buy Me Faded Love collects nine stories of rock & roll and twisted history from Texas writer, Josh Rountree.

Due to current financial uncertainties, Wheatland Press will be on hiatus for 2009.

What this means is that no new books will be published during 2009. We will continue to fill orders on existing titles and will keep those titles available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.com.

Deborah does plan to be at WisCon and ArmadilloCon (and possibly WFC) with copies from the current Wheatland Press catalogue in the dealer rooms.

Thank you for your support.
