Lupo Danish Never Has Nightmares novel


Lupo Danish Never Has Nightmares
By Jimmy Callaway

LUPO DANISH NEVER HAS NIGHTMARES is the debut novel from San Diego-based writer and stand-up comedian, Jimmy Callaway, and the first full-length novel from Crime Factory Publications.
Available in both print and eBook.


With great power comes great dysfunction.

Lupo Danish is the most feared man in organized crime. Tales of his exploits are told in hushed whispers around mobbed-up campfires. But when terror strikes gangland, there is only one man capable of battling with monsters, for he has already become one himself. A furious blend of Beowulf and Amazing Fantasy #15, Lupo Danish Never Has Nightmares is a tale of guilt, retribution, and punching. Lots and lots of punching.

Lupo Danish never botches a job. Lupo Danish never misses his mark. And Lupo Danish never has nightmares.

“Clearly, something is wrong with Jimmy Callaway, but for the moment that something has served him well. ‘Lupo Danish Never Has Nightmares’ may result in the reader having a few of those, the good kind that keep you looking over your shoulder the next day, expecting something half-remembered to leap out of the shadows. Read it or miss out on a first-rate debut by a very sick mind.”
– Scott Phillips, author of THE ICE HARVEST

“You feel that? Those are Jimmy Callaway’s fingers firmly grasping the handle of the stick up the butt of contemporary crime fiction. Don’t twitch. Callaway is a sick puppy and here’s hoping that Lupo Danish spreads like an infectious cough among us.”
–Jedidiah Ayres, author of PECKERWOOD and FIERCE BITCHES

“Lupo Danish may never have, but I had a couple reading this. It’s a bloody, brilliant, and terrifying book. It’ll make you want to laugh, cry, and maybe walk through a plate glass window just to get it out of your head.”
–Benjamin Whitmer, author of CRY FATHER and PIKE

Double Exposure novella


By Kat Clay

Double Exposure by Kat Clay

1948 Portvieux City. A scandal photographer shoots a brutally murdered woman through his lens.

But only he can see her.

As the Photographer uncovers the truth about the invisible woman, he delves into the seedy city, where a missing photographer leaves a legacy of lust, and the border between dreams and reality slowly dissolves like a negative in acid.


“Pulpy noir with a spectral twist; really good stuff.”

-Lindy Cameron, Sisters in Crime


“Poetic, cinematic, and hell of a lot of fun, Double Exposure is a love letter to hardboiled’s dirty past that never lets us forget the urgency of the present. Kat Clay writes like a weapon, an author whose pen takes no shit from anyone.”

Freight novella

By Ed Kurtz


To Enoch and Doc, two down and out men working as railway brakemen in an impoverished Texas town, it seemed like a simple enough heist: steal the copper wire off a train in the middle of the night.

But the carriage contains more than metal. Soon lives are at stake and an unfathomable evil has to be dealt with. And there is no one in Blackwood, Texas for the job but a no-account ex-con.


“Heartbreaking, tragic, moving – all the sights, smells and language of Texas 1973, woven into a classic drifter story.”

-Anonymous-9, author of HARD BITE and BITE HARDER


“In less sure hands, FREIGHT would be an unending train of grief, but Ed Kurtz has this amazing ability to present the darkest corners of society, and then reveal the good and decent human heart that beats underneath.”

-Rob Hart, author of THE LAST SAFE PLACE

Jake Hinkson

By Jake Hinkson

Many consider him a fanatic. Others see him as a prophet. And some simply think he’s insane.

Here, he tells his story.”

LEE (an anthology of fiction based on the life of iconic actor Lee Marvin)Crime Factory

Lee Marvin: one of the most coolly charismatic and extraordinary screen tough guys ever. Armed with a magnetic personality, a wild temper and major acting talent, he went from playing bit parts to starring in classics such as Cat Ballou, The Dirty Dozen and Point Blank, and winning an Academy Award.
Crime Factory celebrates Marvin’s life by making him the star of his own fictional adventures. From WWII hospital ships, mishaps in Mexico, the open seas and Oscar night, to on-set stoushes and much more, LEE ranges from the gleefully gonzo to the painfully personal.

Available in print below, or in the Kindle format HERE.

“This collection of short fiction puts legendary actor Lee Marvin smack dab in the center of the action where he belongs.” — Dwayne Epstein, author of Lee Marvin: Point Blank
“This collection delivers. The writing is pungent, sly and muscular, dark and comic, and all of it has a tremendous energy. A love of film and love of noir is evident in every story. This does Lee proud.” — Christos Tsiolkas, author of The Slap and Dead Europe

All orders processed through PayPal.

Available in print below, or in Kindle format HERE.

“Powerful stuff. Somewhere between Blood Meridian and Neil Smith’s Hogdoggin’.” — Allan Guthrie

“Nietzsche was right: When you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares right back — and Jedidiah Ayres miraculously manages to write about it.” — J.I. Baker
“Righteous, phantasmagoric and funny, FIERCE BITCHES delivers a fuckload of biblical fury.” — David Whish-Wilson
“Jedidiah Ayres proves with FIERCE BITCHES that noir has a new prince…” — @OzNoir
