“You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll keep turning the pages, because one thing is for sure, Michael Pool can write. A gripping collection of tales about the broken, the bent and the down-and-out. Michael dishes up characters with depth, facing internal and external conflicts that will leave you wanting more. One of the best short story collections I’ve read.”– Dietrich Kalteis, award-winning author of Ride the Lightning, The Deadbeat Club and Triggerfish (coming June, 2016)
“Michael Pool writes desperate individuals doing dark deeds. NEW ALLEYS FOR NOTHING MEN is why we read this stuff. In Michael’s short fiction, no quarter is given and no punches held. I’m looking forward to his long form works but his short stories have me hooked like some of his characters, scrambling for JUST. ONE. MORE.” —Craig McNeely, Double Life Press
