BAD HABITS is an anthology of Keith Gilman's short stories. "The best fiction has this feeling that someone's just leaned close to whisper in our ear, 'I've something important to tell you.' Keith Gilman's debut novel has and sustains that quality from the first page. You know right away that you're in the hands of a natural and very fine storyteller. Authenticity, voice, the sense of lives beyond the page, all those things we crave as readers and for which we work so hard as writers, tossing the bones, hoping the magic will work--all are solidly, soundly in place." -James Sallis, author of Drive "Dark, gritty, and hauntingly lyrical, Keith Gilman writes Noir with the authenticity of a cop who has actually worked the mean streets." -Robin Burcell, author of Face of a Killer "...Grabbed me by the collar and wouldn't let go. Gilman's voice is a powerful new addition to the crime fiction community." -Reed Farrel Coleman, Shamus, Barry and Anthony Award-winning author of the Moe Prager series.
