Hair Lit, Vol. 1


I rarely shill here on the blog, but this time I'm making an exception. Hair Lit, Vol. 1 is an indie anthology of stories based on hair metal songs of the 1980s and 1990s. I wasn't even remotely interested in hair metal back in the day, but I still really want to read this book. Hair Lit is edited by my good friend Nick Ostdick and published by Jason Behrends at Orange Alert Press, and includes stories by a bunch of top indie writers, including Nick, Ben Tanzer (yeah, him again), Ryan W. Bradley, Roxane Gay, Steve Himmer, Michael Czyzniejewski, Lindsay Hunter, Sam Weller and many others.

To fund the initial print run, Nick and Jason are running a Kickstarter campaign, which is currently over halfway to the $2,000 goal with just seven days left. There are some intriguing premiums being offered, including personal manuscript consultations from several of the contributors. I'm heading over there shortly to make my pledge, and hope you will too. Great project, great people.
