New Anthology Released & Author Spotlight
Aug 01, 2013 09:50 am | Harvey
Well, I have two bits of exciting news to announce today, so I’ll get right to it.
First, we just released our third short fiction anthology. The Least He Could Do is an eclectic collection of twelve short stories that combine to form a pleasing if occasionally troubling mixture. Here you will find professional and amateur detectives, strung-out criminals and a kindly neighborhood grandmother, a moonlighting real estate agent, absurdity, quiet terror and a great deal more. There are twists galore. You’ll visit past-Earth, a country preacher, a parish priest, a space station under sieBge and a troubling distant future dystopia. At times you’ll laugh out loud, and at times you’ll have to stop reading to let your heart calm down.

J. Gary Vineyard is a fifth-generation Texan who began a career in law enforcement in the Dallas-Fort Worth area as an investigator in the Criminal Intelligence Division of the Department of Public Safety at DFW Airport. He transferred to the Dallas Organized Crime Task Force (Metro Squad) in 1981 and spent nine years there. From 1990 until 2007, he was assigned to the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Dallas Field Division Office, Enforcement Group 2 (a smuggling unit). Over the years, Gary accumulated numerous awards from law enforcement agencies and was an instructor at several area police academies including the Dallas Sheriff’s Department, Dallas Police Department, Regional Police Academy in Arlington, Texas, and DEA’s training programs. During that time, he also taught courses in international smuggling at the American Airlines academy. He holds a Master Peace Officers certificate and is a graduate of DEA’s Drug Unit Commanders Academy in Quantico, Virginia. From the other side of his brain, he has written a full-length comedy stage play called Moby And Dick, which was a semi-finalist in a statewide playwriting competition, and a one-act play called Tap The Brakes, Elvis. He belongs to a local playwrights’ forum and Mystery Writers of America. Visit his website at Gary Vineyard.
Finally, in the next month or so we’re planning to release two long-awaited books: Glen M. Glenn’s Last of the First Born (the first book of the last SF epic you will ever need, we swear!) and Harry Stein’s first new novel with StoneThread, Will Tripp, Pissed Off Attorney at Law. Watch for a special announcement about both of those books. Of course, we have a few other titles in the works too. It’s a great time to be part of the StoneThread Publishing family.
