Joe Clifford’s first book is out. His story collection, Choice Cuts, has been published by Snubnose Press. Of Choice Cuts, the Ampersand Review says, “What brings the collection together is the raw, no-holds-barred writing style, intense characterizations, and beyond twisted plotlines.”

Snubnose Press will also be publishing Clifford’s hardboiled novel, Wake the Undertaker, and Vagabondage Press will be bringing out his novel Junkie Love, both books scheduled for later in 2013.

After completing his MFA, Clifford moved to the San Francisco area, where he is the producer of Lip Service West, a “gritty, real, raw” reading series. He is also editor of the Flash Fiction Offensive. His work has appeared in Big Bridge, the Bryant ReviewDrunken BoatFringeOpiumWord Riot, and many other journals.
