Drinking Until Morning
Paperback and Ebook
9.95 USD (paper) and 2.99 (digital)
This beer soaked, degenerate coming of age story follows the day-to-day trials in the darkly hysterical world of Grimboli, a chronically unemployed nobody who moves listlessly among a group of young adults from the wrong side of the tracks to an endless litany of pathetic and crazed women, bums, drunks, sordid rooms, dreary embraces, and drunken brawls. Littered with psychic debris, self-loathing, and everything else Grimboli can find to take his mind off his completely unfulfilling life. Newly revised edition with introduction by Gabino Iglesias.
Atlatl Press authors D. Harlan Wilson, C.V. Hunt, and Andersen Prunty will be at the Yellow Springs Book Fair on August 16. Copies of Atlatl Press titles will be on hand. If you’re in the area or if you’re not and enjoy traveling great distances, stop by the table to buy a book, pick up a sticker, or just say hi.

Advance Praise for Mastodon Farm
“I’d rank this book up there with Fabulous Nobodies and I Pass Like Night, both books that I’ll never forget the experience of reading.”
-Ken Sparling, author of Dad Says He Saw You At The Mall
“It is like watching TV for 12 hours on a Saturday / a blur of desert-palm trees-James Franco-helicopter noise / the brain of the TV watcher encapsulated.”
-Noah Cicero, author of Best Behavior
“In his impressive debut novel, Mike Kleine fingers the asterisk of pop culture by turns absurd, matted, and outré-familiar. Mastodon Farm lays bare the smooth fiction of mediatized reality.”
-D. Harlan Wilson, author of Hitler: The Terminal Biography
“You feel delirious reading Mastodon Farm. You freak out a little. You change genders. You listen to Tangerine Dream. You drive a Ferrari. You have a good time. You read it again. You read it again.”
-Nick Antosca, author of Fires
“Mastodon Farm is about you. You are wealthy and only associate with famous people. Mike Kleine has written your life. His language is stripped down, but your story is dense… [Think] Samuel Beckett, Tao Lin, Bret Easton Ellis.”
-Bradley Sands, author of Rico Slade Will Fucking Kill You
Losing the Light by Brian Cartwright
Quique Martinez is a broken down photographer in search of the last great shoot. From the islands of Micronesia to the casbahs and desert of the Middle East, Quique will go anywhere to find it. What he doesn’t expect is the surreal adventure waiting to test him both mentally and physically. To him, the only possible outcomes are complete and total failure or the culmination of a life’s passion.
