A week of readings from Switchblade and PM Press brings you novels that deal in the grit and grime of life lived at society's fringes, at the edge of sanity and on the wrong side of the law! Hear the work read by the authors, today's finest in the fields of speculative fiction, crime fiction and noir! Participate in discussion of story as an instrument of social change! Get your questions answered!

On Wednesday, October 20th, Barry Eisler (John Rain thriller series), Owen Hill (The Incredible Double), Benjamin Whitmer (Pike) and Michael Harris (The Chieu Hoi Saloon) will read selections from their published work and discuss the role of crime fiction today.
