Publisher's Summary

This set of novellas from Austin, Texas resident James Hynes was a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year and a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. As chilling as the best of Edgar Allan Poe and bursting with fiendish humor, Publish and Perish features three tales from the not-so-hallowed halls of academia. Hailed as a “delightful collection of the ghostly and the ghastly” by the Austin Chronicle, these stories are brought to wicked life by Adam Grupper.

Critic Reviews

“Witty and penetrating: Hynes creates pungent satires of academic life while at the same time infusing them with genuine suspense and real terror.” ( Kirkus Reviews)

Surprisingly Fun!

This book of 3 novellas is unexpectedly fun and entertaining! The subjects of each of the three are academics, so this book is particularly endearing if you are or love an academician. All of the politics, competitiveness and battles of ego that make up life in our colleges and universities are lovingly handled by the author--but with an eerie spin that will make you shiver and make you laugh!

I discovered this book several years ago and have read it several times. Purchased it on Audible to enjoy it in one more medium. It's that enjoyable.
