THE MAN WITH THE BARBED WIRE FISTS - FIRST HARD COVER. Nigh Shade Books, 2001. First Edition. 6 X 9. Hard Cover. Fine / Fine. ISBN: 1892389118 . Overview: During the Great Depression, outlaw rivals of Bonnie and Clyde battle for their lives in a bullet-riddled cornfield that holds the secret of love and death. In a suburban American ghost town, a frightened boy armed with a BB gun stands alone against a soul-stealing stranger. In the Old West, a legendary gunslinger follows a trail of severed heads as he delivers a mail-order bride to a madman. Hard-boiled thrillers. Gonzo suspense. Grisly horror. Tough yet tender character studies. Norman Partridge gives readers all this and more in his biggest and best collection of short fiction. Known for a vivid, exuberant writing style that goes straight for the throat, Partridge's resolutely eccentric fiction is powered by an obvious affinity -- and affection -- for the outrageous and grotesque. But don't try to put a label on him -- Partridge is a writer who fits no category but his own. Herein you'll find an original introduction by the author himself, a complete bibliography, twenty-plus stories, and two brand new tales from a talent The Washington Times calls "...as crazy as a scorpion on a red-hot skillet -- and twice as dangerous." Gentle reader, you're in for a ride and a half.
