Thomas Sparrow writes in the tradition of Elmore Leonard, Quentin Tarantino and Jim Thompson and remains true to the spirit of the pulp fiction genre first made popular in the 1940’s. His protagonists find themselves at odds with both conventional life and life outside convention. Looking for a way to break free without giving in, each tries to control his fate up p, but all end awns in someone else’s bigger game.
Sparrow’s works include Northwoods Pulp: Four Tales of Crime and Weirdness; Fatally Flawed; and Northwoods Standoff–all three books connected in a Northwoods Noir Trilogy. The critically regarded novel “Social Climbing,” one of the Northwoods Pulp stories, was also released in Japan by publisher Fushosha. Its Japanese title is roughly translated as “Fang of Winter.”
All three novels available in trade paperback are through major online bookstores. They can also be ordered directly through Bluestone Press. Contact us at email@example.com or P.O. Box 3196, Duluth, MN 55803.
