NOW ON SALE! Bad Reputation by Matt Hader

Amika Press is proud to re-release Bad Reputation, Matt Hader’s bestselling collection of stories.

John Caul has decided that it is finally time to wreak some havoc on the townspeople who’ve ostracized him for the past 20 years. When he was a 17-year-old kid, John did the inexcusable—he accidentally burned down the brand new high school gymnasium on the eve of its championship basketball team playing the first game of their season. Now 37 years old, John decides he’s had enough, and he hatches a plan for some payback. As with any well-planned, or in John’s case, not so well-planned scheme…nothing goes as designed.

Also included, six more stories from the Bad Reputation universe.
