"We publish books written by or about music and musicians. Books that rock!" writes Gary McKinney about Bellingham's Kearney Street Books.
McKinney joined his first rock-and-roll band at age sixteen, and worked professionally as a musician for two decades. These days, he continues to play acoustic rock-and-roll with Fritz & the Freeloaders.
Kearney Street's books include Tribute to Orpheus, an anthology of short fiction, poetry, and non-fiction prose by or about music or musicians, as well as McKinney's mystery, Slipknot, about a Deadhead turned sheriff investigating a murder in southwestern Washington.
