Out Now: Extricate/Throw the Bones

Extricate Throw the Bones Dual Cover

Out now in gloriously shiny paperback: the two gritty noir novellas Throw the Bones and Extricate, along with a selection of Brief Capers that include “Losing My Religion” as featured in Otto Penzler’s Kwik Krimes plus stories featured in Near to the Knuckle, Shotgun Honey, A Twist of Noir, Pulp Metal Magazine and more. Enclosed in a dual cover by Sarah Anne Langton, this is a book that will class up the joint — if you ever let it out of your hands.

‘EXTRICATE is a twisty- turny noir tale of dishonor amongst thieves that is skewered with hot lust and cold blooded murder.’

Paul D. Brazill, author of Guns Of Brixton and Gumshoe

‘Crime meets erotica in a fevered novella. Graham Wynd has written a fluid and tight story with vivid characters in situations that are inextricably charged with a sexuality from which you will find it hard to extricate yourself.’

Richard Godwin, author of One Lost SummerApostle Rising and Mr Glamour

News, Interviews and Reviews

Extricate AnimatedA few things out and about just now:

Over at the fabulous Mr B’s gaff, I blether about Viking Wrestling.

Not manly enough for you? Egil was also a world-class wrestler. No, they didn’t actually have titles back then, but trust me. You didn’t mess with Egil: he was the grandson of a werewolf and killed a boy with an axe when he was only seven. Egil rocks.

Over at Margrét Helgadóttir’s blog, I talk about noir and the inspiration behind Extricate:

Like my favorite noir stories, Extricate is about people who don’t see the options and make bad choices. Desire short circuits careful consideration: when your desire for something outweighs any sensible decisions. In this novella, Peter falls for Judy the instant he lights her cigarette, but she’s his best mate’s girl — and he’s already married. He decides to begin removing obstacles — starting with his wife.

And the first reviews are coming along at Amazon and they’re swell:

by Graham Wynd

Love hurts…but that’s the way she likes it.

EXTRICATE is a violent tale of sexual obsession, unfolding on the dark streets of a nowhere town. Peter falls for Judy the instant he lights her cigarette, but she’s his best mate’s girl — and he’s already married. He decides to begin removing obstacles — starting with his wife. How far will he be willing to go? How far does lifelong friendship go when he finally meets the woman of his peculiar dreams?

Cover Reveal: Extricate

extricate ebook 72ppi

I am so very pleased to share the cover art for my noir novella Extricate which will be out next month from Fox Spirit Books. This delicious art is by the wonderful Sarah Langton, who has also produced the very fine series of Fox Pocket anthologies (my story “Headless in Bury” will be in a forthcoming volume, Missing Monarchs).

The essence of superb cover art is that it conveys the complicated idea of the plot and the ambivalence of the story in a single static image. I could not be much happier than when I gaze upon this loveliness.

And yes, the title was inspired by The Fall. Of course. Funny thing: I wrote this last year over the Thanksgiving holiday while I was in NY. Being useless in the kitchen, I only had to entertain the chef while typing away surreptitiously.
