Subject: Tales from the dark side of the street, this is the first major collection of short stories by RD Armstrong ever published. It is chock full of “noir” characters set in a “dime novel” world.

If the reader is a fan of Bukowski’s stories or the work of Jim Thompson, then El Pagano is a must read.

Review Excerpts:

“I enjoyed reading El Pagano…still producing tough, sharp and emotional material.” – Alex Thiltges

“Out Bukowski’s Bukowski!”

“The Manx Tales by RD Armstrong... 15 semi-autobiographical tales of urban alienation & isolation – very internal, very intense. Plenty of ironic humor, & wry sex.” -- John Berbrich (From The Marrow, #5, March 2000) NY
