Meet New York Times bestselling author Tim Dorsey Saturday, March 1.  Tim regales us with his gloriously unrepentant Florida serial killer, Serge Storms, and discusses his latest book, TIGER SHRIMP TANGO: A Novel.

Determined to save a damsel in distress, the Sunshine State’s favorite serial killer and encyclopedia of Florida lore Serge Storms dances a tango of death and mayhem in this funny and dementedly entertaining crime caper.

Thanks to the Internet, America has become a playground for ruthless scam artists out to make an easy buck. And where do these models of entrepreneurship hail from? Why, the Sunshine State of course!

No one loves Florida more, or can keep it safe from invasive criminal species better than self-appointed Sunshine Sheriff Serge Storms. When a particular scam leads to the death of a few innocents and a young woman's disappearance, Serge and his sidekick Coleman — aided by his new pal, latter-day noir private eye Mahoney — load up the car for a riotous road trip to do right. Packed with seafood, mayhem, blood, Coleman’s deep thoughts, Floridian lore, and more, TIGER SHRIMP TANGO is a hilarious treat from the incomparable Tim Dorsey.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

John Pritchard brings back bawdy philosopher Junior Ray, along with his sidekick Voyd Mudd, in this third hilarious installment of the critically acclaimed “Junior Ray” series.

In Sailing to Alluvium, Pritchard continues the madcap adventures of the duo, who have become “diktectives” to stop the murderous activities of a semi-secret, lethal organization of Southern women, the AUNTY BELLES, headed by Miss Attica Rummage.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

==========================================

Barnes and Noble named John’s first book, Junior Ray, a Top Ten Sensational Debut Novel for 2005.

“Honed from the rough roads of dialect, the language within defines Pritchard as one of our great Southern writers.  The man has an ear for the voice of his people, and he's twisted their words into a tough, raunchy, comic roller-coasting romp, corkscrewing us down the byways of a Delta that is more than likely not traveled by the average tourist, but should be.“                  --Frank Bill, author of Crimes in Southern Indiana & Donnybrook
