DENVER, COLORADO, Saturday, May 28th, 2016, at 3 PM - Celebrate MEMORIAL DAY in DENVER with Author and Publisher Mark Stevens (Trapline, Lake of Fire, others) of RUNNING METER PRESS, who will appear at Mutiny Information Café on South Broadway to commemorate the late GARY REILLY (whose novel, The Detachment, second in a trilogy about military life, is based on his own experiences as an MP in Vietnam, was just released by Running Meter), to sell copies of Reilly's latest novel and give an overview of the late author’s prolific, highly literate catalogue, much of it produced while driving a cab in Denver, to be followed by a dialogue with interested listeners to his presentation.

To boot, commented local writer Zack Kopp regarding his discovery of Asphalt Warrior, the first in a series of fictional works by Reilly on the adventures of Denver cab driver, Murph, “This book is, without exception, THE book every reader ever charmed by John Fante felt inspired to the authorship of—w/ cab driving in Denver as the motive engine and main character Murph's Irish roots substituted for Arturo Bandini's Italo-Catholic ones in similar form. My friend, Dan Fante, John Fante's son, having passed the day before, I could hardly fail to notice the chain of circumstance. This book came to me right on time.”

Mark Stevens (Denver, CO) worked as a reporter for The Christian Science Monitor, The Rocky Mountain News, The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour, The Denver Post, and Denver Public Schools. He is a member of the Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, Western Writers of America and the Colorado Authors League.
