Booked brings you a live Noir at the Bar reading from our recent visit to Corydon Indiana! Back on November 3rd, Livius and Robb drove from Chicago all the way to the Louisville KY area for a night of high-octane, high-volume (and in some cases, probably just high) stories from the Jed Ayres and Frank Bill camps in celebration of the recent release of the Noir at the Bar 2 anthology.
The night hosted eight total readers, over two hours total of reading. Because we’re not so sadistic, we decided to break up the reading into three episodes. the old 3/3/2.
In addition to a great reading, we picked up a ton of great books. Some signed print copies of Matthew McBride’s Frank Sinatra in a Blender, Noir at the Bar vol. 2, Jed Ayres’ F*ckload of Shorts, and the novella collection Uncle B’s Drive-In Fiction (with novellas by David James Keaton, CJ Edwards, Matt Funk, and more).

David James Keaton kicks off this episode reading his story Burning Down Djs, a story that appears in much greater detail (as is usually the case with iterations of DJK stories) in his forthcoming collection of stories Fish Bites Cop. It’s all about revenge, fire, tazers, and evolution? You’ll get it when you hear it. DJK is the author of Zee Bee & Bee, and has appeared nearly everywhere it’s possible to submit a story, as he is very prolific. He’s also the creator guy at Flywheel Magazine. In addition to his prolific-ness, he has also been on Booked about three thousand times, and been hilarious each time.
CJ Edwards had the dubious honor of following David James Keaton. Fitting, as his day job is busting bad guys. Edwards too has been published everywhere good crime fic can be found – including Uncle B’s Drive-In Fiction alongside his crowd warmer Dave Keaton. CJ read his story Letting Go, a very gripping tale of an emergency call gone very bad.
That wraps up our three-part Noir at the Bar live reading series of episodes. If you haven’t listened to any of the others, go back and check them out. They’re stellar. Also, feel free to browse all of our Shindig in Chi-Town which also took place in Chicago during AWP 2012.
