Unlike most anthologies, Rogue leads the reader through a series of torrid, murky dirty trysts, each refreshing and building your interest as a new writer takes the lead and pulls you through his filthy little journey.
There are far too many examples of gorgeous writing on display by this team of writers to mention all; but for me, Furchtenicht, (gratuity, dead-on insights) Nixon, (always a pleasure to read keith’s inspired Russian, bampot) and Bracha (endlessly creative and willing to stretch himself); shone a tad brighter and gave moments of genius amidst a collection of extremely talented writers, all producing their finest work to date. There’s not a single author on this project I won’t be checking out in future.
Sant, Douglas and the lad Bracha have brought a large number of very different writers together, this doesn’t always work, like too many creative musicians in a super-group, but when it does work, as is the case with this anthology, it really really does make you long for a larger platform for Team Indie to share their Manky words on.
Near to The Knuckle has a fan for life in me.
You can find the Near to the Knuckle anthology and the authors involved at Amazon
