TAMPA, Fla. - April 24, 2017 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that CRYSTAL ON ELECTRIC ACETATE by Richard Godwin is published this week in trade paperback and ebook formats.

"I always look forward to a submission from Richard Godwin as I know it will be something I couldn't anticipate receiving," said Eric Campbell, Publisher of Down & Out Books. "This collection of stories is clearly representative of his talent as a writer."


Crystal on Electric Acetate is the first and ultimate original collection of short stories by crime and mystery novelist Richard Godwin. Comprising a fascinating and versatile range of stories previously published in great and ground-breaking cutting-edge paper and online magazines, this collection sums up his take on noir. From urban decay to Gothic explosion, at once revolutionary, iconoclastic, erotic and dark as that cellar next door.

"If you think this is one genre, think again. If you think you can work out what hybrid genre this is, think again. Mutation exists at all levels. Welcome to the mix of stories." —Richard Godwin.

"Godwin is truly one of our great authors." —Luca Veste, author of Dead Gone.
