Hot Pants

Get Up Offa That Thing: Crime fiction inspired by the songs of James Brown, edited by Gary Phillips

How fun is this?! A full-on, funky mystery anthology of short stories inspired by the music of James Brown. I had a lot of fun watching old videos of Brown’s concerts– could that man move! My story is inspired by his song, ‘Hot Pants.‘ As one of a handful of women in this anthology, I felt compelled to write this one! (Confession: wore hot pants in my youth!) My story features a stripper trying to get out of the life. She was formerly billed as ‘Princess Hot Pants’ because she was so young and shy when she started at the pole. Does she successfully navigate the ‘straight’ world? Read on… and be delighted by the many, many fabulous stories inside. Including one by my partner in crime, Katy Munger!
