Rock and a Hard Place is back with Issue 4, the downest and dirtiest chronicle of bad decisions and desperate people yet, with contributions from:
Jay Bechtol, Michael Chin, Barbara DeMarco-Barrett, Laura Dizon, Paul J. Garth, Dan Georgakas, Stephen J. Golds, Bruce Harris, Russell W. Johnson, Wilson Koewing, Diane Krauthamer, Susan Kuchinskas, Jeff Maschi, Jess Messier, Roger Nokes, Andrew Novak, Thomas Pluck, Richard Risemberg, Peter Rozovsky, Jason Mykl Snyman, Stefen Styrsky, N.B. Turner and Jane Young.
Rock and a Hard Place is the place for noir that goes beyond crime to a view of the world. Anywhere substance abuse, sex work, dead end jobs and hopeless scams are the obvious choice, you'll find our authors digging deep.
