New Books from ClaytonWorks Publishing

Coming this fall from ClaytonWorks Publishing - three exciting new books:

Practicing Zen Without A License
by Jack Butler

Practicing Zen Without A License is a treatise of religion and philosophy as written by Kurt Vonnegut and Douglas Adams in the year 2450 AD. Or something like that. Wisdom and practicality lurk beneath the bad jokes and worse puns and purposeful disregard for convention and grammar, or as OB Wanda (Roshi) would have it, “dialect, slang, anecdotes, wild-ass metaphors, jokes, free association, word-music”
“The Kid Who Wanted to Be A Spaceman” has grown up.

Jack Butler is the author of eight previous books in sixteen editions worldwide:
  • West of Hollywood 
  • Hawk Gumbo and Other Stories
  • The Kid Who Wanted to Be a Spaceman
  • Jujitsu for Christ (1986)
  • Nightshade (1989)
  • Living in Little Rock With Miss Little Rock (nominated for a Pulitzer Prize)
  • Jack’s Skillet: Plain Talk and Some Recipes From a Guy in the Kitchen
  • Dreamers

Reunion at the Wetside
by Alec Clayton

Romance blossoms at Barney's Pub between Alex, a leftwing Democrat, and Jim, a Libertarian-leaning Republican - old friends from half a century ago.

Meantime, someone is killing off all the old drag queens, and Jim may be the only person who can catch the killer

... if he doesn't become the next victim.

"If you like murder mysteries with a bit of meat and history on them, you will love Reunion at the Wetside.  Alex Clayton lovingly and skillfully unveils the layered secrets behind of a series of murders, which turn out, not surprisingly, to have their roots in what happened among a group of children (and the young adults they became) decades ago.  Once again, the past not only isn't gone, it isn't even the past.  And this past is a killer!" - Jack Butler
