Welcome to the internet home of Malarkey Books, an independent and largely fictional publishing entity dedicated entirely to publishing the words of Alan Good, an underground writer who is so underground you usually need a geology degree to find him.
Switching to the first person, I am an antisocial, reclusive author living in a heavily fortified microcompound somewhere in the United States, specifically Denver. In fact I'm so antisocial and reclusive that almost no one has heard of me, although my writing has appeared in Timothy McSweeney's Internet Tendency, Atticus Review, The Legendary, Bookslut, Red Fez, Perversion Magazine, and Word Riot. Now some of it appears here.
You're probably here by accident, or maybe fate; either way, feel free to do some reading. All content on this website, unless otherwise stated, is created by Alan Good. All rights reserved and all that.
This page seems kind of static, and I guess it is, but there's a lot going on up in Forthcoming and The Gallimaufry, even sometimes in Fuck Oblivion, which gets updated less frequently. If you want some fresh content, move your cursor up to the toppish part of this page and click on one of those tabs. Or click on an image below:
This week's featured Forthcoming review of a totally made-up book is not even a review at all; it's actually an interview that our intern Landry, who is not a real person, scored with Richard Spencer, the famous racist and fashion icon:
My first novel is Barn Again: A Memoir. If you haven't seen the links for it on this website, you probably are on a different website. I recommend that you buy it, but if you don't have any money you can read part of it for free on this website and then live the rest of your life in suspense. Just move yourself over to the Barn Again: A Memoir section of the site.
There are some reviews of it right down there, in case you you lack faith in my recommendation:
Special offer: if you'd like a signed copy of Barn Again, click the trash below and you can buy one directly through this website instead of throwing money at Amazon. You'll get faster shipping through Amazon, but if you want my physical and not just emotional-spiritual DNA on your copy, Malarkeyweb is the way to go. Apple Pay and credit cards are accepted.
NOTE: Any orders received in the next two weeks will be slowly processed. If you're looking for quick delivery, you can order through Amazon; if you don't mind waiting, you can go through here, and if you use the code MALARKEY at checkout you'll receive 25% off.
