Created by Peter Parmantie
JOSEPH ANGELLO describes himself as a "short, overweight investigator with a big nose that I stick in everyone's business." Not bad, actually. I'd go on to say he's pretty ugly, too. And also one of the more refreshing eyes to come out of the cyber-pulp explosion of the late nineties. (We've published two of his stories, in fact,and hope to publish more).
Joe's cynical, and skeptical and not always a nice guy, often more than willing to get down and dirty, if that's what it takes to get the job done in a city so corrupt and perverted that he can't even bring himself to name it. And yet, there are also heart-breaking moments when we slip behind the hardened exterior, and see the sad, and maybe even pathetic man under the shell--lonely, mourning the loss of his beloved wife Maud, doing whatever he can to survive.
Peter Parmantie is a retired teacher who has decided to write. He is a compulsive reader, starting almost from birth. He cut his teeth on thrillers as an adolescent, kicking his regular studies overboard and educating himself by reading what adults then considered trash. his conclusion? They were wrong. Now he wants to try his hand at the genre. He promises more stories of Mr. Angello for the future...
