Minstrel’s Alley to Publish Spy Book

Minstrel’s Alley will soon be releasing its first book, “The Guys Who Spied for China.”   The new, independent publisher is based in Santa Monica, California and intends to publish books that have popular appeal but not necessarily mainstream.   Minstrel’s Alley sees a pressing need for books that are based in a literary tradition but offer a  modern expression of the world around us.

“The Guys Who Spied for China” is written by Gordon Basichis.  It is a roman a clef depicting Chinese espionage networks operating in the United States in the eighties and nineties.    While depicting incidents that were long kept under wraps, the novel is relationship based and interspersed with quirky humor.

The Guys Who Spied for China is scheduled for publication in mid-October.

Minstrel’s Alley plans to publish several books, annually and intends to release multimedia, film, and video in the future.
