So.. I have this idea...


...this crazy concept for an anthology. Tell me what you guys think:

Pizza Delivery Guy Noir

Great, huh? Imagine the possibilites!

Since most pizza delivery guys I've encountered seem certifiably insane...

I say rock on.

Jim Winter said...

Jen, I used to do that for a living, then to get out of debt. (Didn't work either
time.) You HAVE to do this one. You HAVE to.

Yeah, it's a hafta, but I can tell you wanna. (Yeesh! I'm quoting my self.)

In fact, the next standalone I'm planning involves pizza delivery. And so much
more. It may be the first book to get me sued for libel. Heh-heh-heh!

Do it. Beg, whine, plead with the Bleakhouse people. Barrage Johnny Temple with emails. Tell Otto Penzler it won't have an ounce of cozy in it.

Do you accept reprints? I just happen to have got a pizza delivery guy story.

Sarah said...

Count me in, if only to indulge my love for 80s Patrick Dempsey movies.

Gerald So said...

I say go for it as well.

David Terrenoire said...

Some guy orders Chicago style and gets thin crust instead. Yeah. I can see how that could lead to some serious mayhem.

Sauce everywhere.

If I could get a single synapse to fire I'd have so damn many funny things to say. Pretty much filled my clever quota just coming up with the idea. Now... supine for the spine.

Oh.

Magazine deadline.

Guess not!

But I'm not bitter.

No.

I'm not bitter.

The hell I'm not!

Wham!

(I just knocked myself over a cliff and into a gulley with brackish water that has instantly stinkified me so badly that even mothballs smell good by comparison.)

I used to deliver pizzas in college. You know how glamorous they make it seem in porn films? Yeah, it's just like that.

Love the idea. When are you accepting submissions?

AnswerGirl said...

It almost writes itself. Cash-based business, moving target, fungible product...

but what I really want to see is DRYCLEANING NOIR.

sandra seamans said...

Just wondering - will this be open or by invitation only?

Jon The Crime Spree Guy said...

Did someone say Pizza?


I love Pizza

Stuart MacBride said...

Will it be restricted to pizza - or will any form of home-delivered fast food comestibles be acceptable?

OrangeD00d said...

L.T Fawkes has already been there and done that, unfortunately.

Kat Richardson said...

Drycleaning Noir... I used to live upstairs from a drycleaner. Lemme tell ya: it's more noir than you think down there with the chemicals and the wire coat hangers....

Jennifer Jordan said...

But, my dear Jeff, Fawkes didn't have a title like, "The Pizza Guy Cometh".

Stuart, all pizza, all the time like my brother Jon's diet in the 90's.

Oh, the marketing possibilities!
