Best ‘horrifying, #romantic, tragic, comic, #SciFi cowboy #detective novel’ ever! The Devil’s Mouth by Matt Kincade #FridayReads

Genre bingo (or How to Write a Bestselling Book/Hit Movie) :

Life isn’t divided into genres. It’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you’re lucky. —Alan Moore, The Mustard (January 2005)

Genre mashups such as The Devil’s Mouth by today’s guest, Matt Kincade, are a great way to breathe life into established genres. And it’s fun: just pick a genre—any genre—and then mix with one or two more that have nothing to do with it.

Two quick and easy ways to do it are to add zombies—

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Historical Fiction + Zombies = Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

And/or do it in space—

—Western + Space = Firefly

Want to mash more genres? How about what these movies did?
