Virtual Noir at the Bar — Rock and a Hard Place Magazine hosted “Noir from a Hard Place,” an event that included Allan reading his noir story, “Sawed Off.” (April 26, 2020)
The story is violent and shocking and heartbreaking, perfect for a magazine that bills itself as “A chronicle of bad decisions and desperate people.”
It’s available in electronic and print editions:
Rock and a Hard Place Magazine published their debut issue in September 2019, billing themselves as “A Chronicle of Bad Decisions and Desperate People.”
Allan’s noir tale, “A Town Full of Losers” was featured in the issue, and in early January 2020 he spoke with RHP cofounder and Editor-in-Chief Roger Nokes on the inaugural RHP podcast. The podcast featured a reading of “A Town Full of Losers” followed by a lively discussion.
Authors on the Air interview
In June 2019 Allan was interviewed by host Pam Stack of Authors on the Air on Blog Talk Radio regarding the release of the seventh Tracie Tanner thriller, The Soviet Assassin.
At one time in late 2016, producers at Authors on the Air thought it might be a good idea to have Allan co-host a radio show along with fellow authors Luke Romyn and Claude Bouchard. This experiment lasted exactly one episode, with New York Times bestselling author Russell Blake as the guest, on March 27, 2017. Here is that rare hour of radio madness.
