Just trying to work, do pub reviews and soldier on with the Windowlicker Maker at the minute while I contemplate the fiendishly swinish exclusivity deal Penguin has just signed with WH Smiths.
A quick synopsis of the Windowlicker Maker goes a little like this:
Joe Tatum thought he had left a life of brutality behind until, on a visit to the cinema with his new wife Ava, she is slain. Victim of what looks like a series of random and senseless attacks.
Months of deep depression pass until the day Joe learns that a psychotic underworld figure is encouraging young thugs to carry out these unprovoked assaults on the public to “prove” themselves to him.
Joe gathers himself together and resolves to teach these bastards why they used to call him the Windowlicker Maker.
Yes, for all you hardcore fans out there, the look of Joe Tatum is based on the legendary Paul Bearer of Sheer Terror and Joe Coffee. The Windowlicker Maker should be out by the end of the year. I’ll keep you posted.
