Eating in the Underworld

Short Story by J. D. Brink

$0.99 available in bundles


“Brink melds hard-boiled mystery, robot sex slaves, and a twist on Greek myth, all which evoke Blade Runner, and leaves you wanting for more.”  — Tales of the Talisman Magazine 

Harry Celeste is a next century private eye with last century style. He’s rough around the edges and makes no apologies for it. You want someone who can track dirt bags, you hire a detective who’s not afraid to get dirty.

And this case is dirty.

This short story of urban fantasy and sci-fi noir also appears in the collection A Long Walk Down a Dark Alley.


If taking a college fencing class, eating from the trash can, and smelling like an animal were qualifications for becoming a sword-swinging barbarian, J. D. Brink might be Conan’s protégé. But since that career path seemed less than promising, he has instead been a sailor, spy, nurse, and officer in the U.S. Navy, as well as a gravedigger, insurance adjuster, and school teacher in civilian life. Today (spring, 2016) he and his family are stationed in Japan, where he’s providing a bad example for all Americans. In his writing, as in life, Mr. Brink enjoys dabbling in multiple genres.
