Cover Reveal: UNDERWATER FISTFIGHT by Matt Betts

My fellow Dog Star Books author, Matt Betts, is betraying his speculative fiction roots by writing for the parent company of our imprint: Raw Dog Screaming Press. The audacity! The outrage! He’s publishing a book of…pirate poetry. Like, actual pirates. With parrots and peg legs. “Poet. Pirate. It’s all the same really. They both pillage,Continue reading “Cover Reveal: UNDERWATER FISTFIGHT by Matt Betts”

KW Taylor: New Dog Star Books author!

Some facts you might not know about speculative fiction writer K.W. Taylor: Like me, she is from Dayton, Ohio. By law, all Dayton writers must go by their initials for publication. Her adorable tabby cat Dharma and my blue-point Siamese Alex are having a sordid long-distance romance. In our spare time, we front a postmodern industrial synth bandContinue reading “KW Taylor: New Dog Star Books author!”
