Novelist Stephen Graham Jones has signed a two-book deal with Dzanc Books. The publisher will release the coming-of-age novel Flushboy in 2013 and the detective novel Not for Nothing in 2014.
Jones has written nine works of fiction, ranging from the postmodern horror of Demon Theory to the Blackfeet Indian reservation novel Ledfeather. The novelist has built a dedicated following online, celebrated along with two other writers at The Velvet reading community.
Here’s more about the two novels: “Flushboy is a novel about the 16-year-old boy working the window of the drive-thru urinal of his father’s latest business venture, The Bladder Hut. It’s a uniquely told coming-of-age story and more. Not for Nothing, is in theory, a detective story, but as usual, Jones plays with convention and gives his readers much more than they might expect.”
