Where to Get It:
Joe Schwartz is a writer following in the footsteps of Dashiell Hammett, Donald Goines, and Chuck Palahniuk.

A terrific, fast paced storytelling style that never wastes a word, his work constantly entertains and demands to be read.
What they're saying about it:
"Joe Schwartz made me an instant fan with his first short story collection Joe's Black T-Shirt. The Games Men Play is even better. These stories are dark, gritty snapshots of people you might pass by at any given time. These aren't just characters on paper. They feel real, as if they could step off the page and walk down the street with you. Schwartz has a way of engaging readers by giving enough detail to captivate without offering so much that you're bored. He always leaves me wanting more - but in a good way. If you're looking to get sucked in to a world that might make you grimace while you eagerly turn pages, this collection is a must."--Amazon Reviewer
