by B.R. Spangler, Naked Moon Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Naked Moon book, Naked Moon: A short story. An unexpected storm. A sudden distraction. For one traveler, the sight of a naked moon might just mean the difference between life and death. Excerpt I DIED THIS morning on a winding road in the Ohio Amish Country. Rainy daylight spilled around me while heaping clouds piled high into the sky. In the distant west, the sky bore a giant bruise, sending a curtain of stormy green and black over my head. When the winds became sudden, a howling gale blew leaves and twigs across the road like a child throwing a tantrum. That is when I should have slowed down. That is when I should have eased into the turns and the sharp curves. But I never let up on the gas and marched forward without giving it a second thought. The weather fronts played together in thundery efficacy while sunlight peered in through a closing blue window, hinting that the storm might soon pass.

by Domenic Stansberry, Naked Moon Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Naked Moon book, Set in San Francisco in the crumbling vestiges of Italian North Beach, Domenic Stansberry's latest novel plunges once again into the noir underworld of Dante Mancuso. This new installment of Stansberry's critically acclaimed series, Naked Moon, unearths a past Mancuso had hoped to escape. Before becoming a private investigator, Dante worked for a secret corporate security firm---known simply as the company---that prized effectiveness over legality. When Dante left, it was not on good terms. So he made sure to take enough inside information to keep himself safe from reprisal. Dante, however, has his own secrets; for example, he doesn't ask his cousin Gary questions about how he keeps the family warehousing business---the one where Dante is a silent partner---in the black, while everyone else's has failed. When SFPD Detective Leanora Chin starts asking questions, Gary turns to the company for help, which they're willing to provide, so long as Dante agrees to settle his past debts by doing them one last favor: the type of favor that could drag him under for good. Edgar Award winner Domenic Stansberry is one of the most talented crime novelists working today. His novels are dark, lyrical, and widely acclaimed, and Naked Moon is no exception as it captures the sense of dread, paranoia, and quiet despair that cling to a man and a part of a city living on borrowed time.
by Joe Okonkwo, Milk Chocolate Naked Moon Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Milk Chocolate Naked Moon book, Joe Okonkwo has produced a volume of poetry that is actually a mosaic of African-American and Gay issues. This riveting collection covers everything from Jazz and sex, to politics and dating; from racism within the Gay community, to black on black racism. There are poems about the journey from depression to wholeness and poems about exuberant gay men flouncing about the streets wearing only silk boxer shorts and argyle socks. This volume has a little of everything including poignant tributes to Jazz greats Ethel Waters and Billie Holiday. Joe Okonkwo fearlessly tackles taboo subjects such as what some African-Americans really think about the ghetto, who really bears the blame for slavery and how expectations the Gay media sets forth affect those who don't—or can't—comply. Milk Chocolate/Naked Moon is exactly what we've been waiting for: an unpredictable, page turning collection of poetry.
