Not what I listened to while Mongrels-writing, but some songs that synch up well with Mongrels, I think. Which you can cue up just on Spotify, here*. Also, before I get to annotating and embedding and pulling my hair about because the versions I want aren’t available, etc, I also put together a Youtube playlist—different stuff, same vein—here* (also, no guarantees there isn’t a bit of overlap between Youtube and Spotify—I get really clicky about werewolf songs). So, take my paw, let me lead you into this full-moon night—really, a certain someone says it all better than I can: And here we go: 1. Five Man Electrical Band The natural life cycle of the American werewolf 2. Townes Van Zandt All werewolf statements start with some version of “If I had a dollar bill” 3. The Gourds Everybody goes to jail at some point. Especially werewolves. 4. Melissa Etheridge When it comes down to being sentimental or being alive, werewolves always pick being alive. 5. Mulehead Werewolf cars eat up the miles. Seven states in fourteen hours? Only if you stop at every last roadside attraction. 6. Tom Waits It’s pretty obvious Tom Waits is a werewolf. 7. Sun Kil Moon Werewolves, they know about burning the trash, and, much like this band, they never win any spelling bees either 8. The Dollyrots This particular werewolf’s name, it’s Layla 9. Dr. John Werewolves don’t want to know about evil. They just want to know about love. 10. Drive-By Truckers I know a werewolf who talks . . . → → →

Just a quick note–it’s Official Release Day for The Faster Redder Road: The Best UnAmerican Stories of Stephen Graham Jones! 22% off today!
So yeah, that was it. Thanks so much for all your support. Oh. This is what they’re saying:
“This collection showcases the best writings of Stephen Graham Jones, whose career is developing rapidly from the noir underground to the mainstream. The Faster Redder Roadfeatures excerpts from Jones’s novels–including The Last Final Girl, The Fast Red Road: A Plainsong, Not for Nothing, and The Gospel of Z–and short stories, some never before published in book form. Examining Jones’s contributions to American literature as well as noir, Theodore C. Van Alst Jr.’s introduction puts Jones on the literary map.”
“Stephen Graham Jones does for the literary world what Andy Warhol did for the visual arts: turns the common into the extraordinary, makes the low high, and absolves the sins of our literary pleasures. Like a madman in a factory, Jones produces one terrifying masterpiece after another–he is a superstar, and his brilliance will burn way longer than anyone’s fifteen minutes of fame.”–Ito Romo, author of The Border Is Burning
