Everyone knows about Gary Phillips’s four Ivan Monk mystery novels. But did you know that there are a bunch of Monk short stories too? And did you know that you can find 15 of them in the new collection Monkology?

Okay, it’s not exactly new:  there was the legendary 2004 hardcover limited edition. Which is really hard to get your hands on. Now A Barnacle Book announces a trade edition and e-book, with two additional stories … Monkology: 15 Stories From The World of Private Eye Ivan Monk.

Next Saturday, June 2, from 2 to 4 in the afternoon, A Barnacle Book, Rare Bird Books, and FourStory sponsor the Monkology Launch Party at Club Fais Do-Do, 5253 West Adams Boulevard in Los Angeles. (That’s between Fairfax and La Brea.) There’ll be refreshments, there’ll be books, and there’ll be the man himself.

Come on down and meet him, buy a book, and have a blast. RSVP here.
