TAMPA, Fla. - May 29, 2019 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that DIE BEHIND THE WHEEL: CRIME FICTION INSPIRED BY THE MUSIC OF STEELY DAN, an anthology edited by Brian Thornton, will be published on June 24, 2019 in trade paperback and ebook formats.


This is the book of the expanding man.

What's the end result of a crazy scheme to match some of music history's most evocative and memorable songs with twelve of today's most entertaining writers?

You're looking at it.

With this collection there's no need to chase the dragon, tour the Southland in a traveling minstrel show, or drink Scotch whiskey all night long. You've already bought the dream.

Covering every game in the Grammy-winning catalog of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker—collectively celebrated as Steely Dan—these compulsively readable stories will stagger the mind of ramblers, wild gamblers, and—of course—the winners in the world.

From the suburban streets of Annandale to the mystical spheres of Lhasa…from the shine of your Japan to the sparkle of your China…from Sunset Boulevard to Camarillo and from Scarsdale to Brooklyn…put these twelve masters of crime fiction behind the wheel, and come along for a ride you won't soon forget.

Like a Sunday in T.J., it's cheap, but it's not free.

Edited by Brian Thornton with a Foreword by Jeffrey Weber and stories by David Corbett, Nick Feldman, Bill Fitzhugh, Linda Joffe Hull, R.T. Lawton, Cornelia Read, Stacy Robinson, Brian Thornton, dbschlosser, Sam Wiebe, Simon Wood, and James W. Ziskin.
