9780984786022: Heart of Darkness Club (Asphalt Warrior)

Denver cabbie, Brendan Murphy--known to all as Murph--has two goals in life. First, to earn no more than it takes to keep his bohemian lifestyle afloat. Second, to never, under any circumstances, get involved in the lives of his passengers.

In The Heart of Darkness Club, the third in novelist Gary Reilly's Asphalt Warrior series, Murph once again fails spectacularly at his second goal the minute he picks up a mover named Trowbridge. Movers in Murph's world are not to be confused with movers and shakers.

Trowbridge pays his fare with a crisp five-dollar bill. Later, Murph finds an enigmatic handwritten note on the bill. Murph can't get the message out of his head, believing it was specifically directed at him. He sets of in search of his passenger, the meaning of the message, and the inner workings of his very soul.

About the Author:

Gary Reilly was born in Arkansas City, Kansas. He spent his early years in Kansas and Colorado in a large Irish-Catholic family-seven brothers and sisters. The family moved to Denver where Gary attended parochial high school, graduating in 1967. He served two years in the army, including a tour in Vietnam as a military policeman. After discharge, Gary majored in English at Colorado State University and continued studies at the Denver campus of the University of Colorado. All along, his overarching ambition was to write fiction. His first published short story, "The Biography Man," was published in The Iowa Review (Vol. 8, No. 4) in 1977. At the time, Robert Coover was the fiction editor and T. Coraghessan Boyle was a contributing editor. Other contributing writers in that issue were Ian McEwan and Ron Hansen, among other luminaries "The Biography Man" went on to get republished in The Pushcart Prize anthology (Vol. IV). That was the last time Gary Reilly was ever published--in his lifetime. But that's not because he stopped writing. Gary went on to write 25 novels, several based on his army experiences. While he wrote both serious and genre fiction, his greatest invention was the character, Murph, a likable, bohemian Denver cab driver. Starting with The Asphalt Warrior, Gary cranked out eleven Murph novels. His dedication to writing did not include self-promotion. Instead of seeking agents and publishers, he focused on his craft, writing and rewriting, polishing to perfection. He wrote well over 25 novels before he thought he was ready make his work public. Unfortunately, he passed away in March, 2011 before he could realize that dream.

About the Author:

Gary Reilly, winner of the 1977 Pushcart Prize, died in 2011; his books are being published posthumously. Lovers of good fiction lost a star they'd never known.
