    1 thought on “New Alleys for Nothing Men”

    1. New Alleys For Nothing Men: Crime and Noir Stories is one of those cases where the title makes it clear that the reading inside is not going to be of a light and fluffy nature. If one had not already picked up on the lack of a feline presence on the cover, or missed the idea that alleys are almost always trouble, and had no idea what “nothing men” meant, the fact that the subtitle referred to Crime and Noir Stories, should have made it clear that these tales won’t make you feel good about [...]

    2. This is a wonderful collection of gritty, dramatic. realistic, evocative writing. These short stories are surprising and thought provoking. Each one has some kind of crime or lawlessness in it. Some are tragic some are redeeming. Just wonderful

    3. This is a great collection of short stories, one of the best I've read. The author does a great job of building realistic characters with a lot of depth, characters who we care about in short order. Great narrative and description, too, without ever slowing the pace. Michael Pool proves he is an author to watch for.

    4. Poole fills his short stories with pain, desperation, and ragged emotion. This is a very readable collection and, although you may have caught one or two stories before, they are joined by a bunch more. Most of the narrators in these stories aren't quite what you'd consider your traditional Heroes like Captain America or Spider-Man. For the most part, these guys have run out their string of bad luck and bad decisions and have nowhere left to turn. Drug-Addled dads out on benders, two-bit ex-cons [...]

    5. Excellent short-story collection. I had seen the two pieces that lead it off in the magazines Thuglit and All Due Respect, and so I welcomed the opportunity to get more of Michael Pool's stories in one place. His tales of losers are often quite moving, but my favorite was the surprisingly uplifting "Doo-Doo the Biker Boyee".

    6. Love the title. Liked all the stories but none of them blew me away. The writing was consistently excellent. Strong narrative voices and packed with details.
