Z.Z. Del Presto
Booze-soaked P.I. Z.Z. DEL PRESTO is a throwback (or is that throw-up?) to the good ol' days of hard-drinkin', hard-fightin,' hard-boiled private dicks.
DelPresto is not your average hard case, although he does have a fondness for young women and old rum. He made his first appearancee in the now classic, self-penned short story, "Karate Babes from the Year 3000," wherein he runs up against some frat boys and superwomen from the future in or does he? It's a wild ride and a lot of fun, but don't take my word for it check out what Z.Z himself has to say about ole Z.Z.:
The Z.Z. DelPresto stories drunkenly (but proudly) "play with the conventions of the hard-boiled P.I. tradition. Raunchy, funny, and always about to jump the tracks, the stories featuring Z.Z. are best enjoyed while partaking in DelPresto's second favorite activity--getting shit-faced drunk on rum." They also pound on every noir button known to man.
Of course you're thinking, what kinda yabbadoo refers to himself in the third person? But actually Z.Z. is a collaboration between well-respected ybbadoos Victor Gischler and Anthony Neil Smith, two alleged grown-ups.
Cheers, guys. Next round's on me...
