A Tale of NuLo


The weak don’t survive in Dockside NuLo…

And that means Danny is in trouble. An orphan recruited into a gang of street thieves, his first job ends in disaster. His best friend is injured, and the man he tried to rob lies bleeding on the pavement. With nothing to show for his efforts, Danny can expect only punishment from Pipejohn, the cruel gang-boss.

Quinboy is the sordid tale of one boy’s struggle to survive in a dying city. It is a story of murder and intrigue, of drugs and theater. It is a story of the terrible things the strong do to the weak, and what happens when the weak get strong.


M.S. Hund’s debut novel, Seven: The Haunted Girl of NuLo, introduced readers to the dying city of NuLo, a dystopian playground for gangsters and witches, genetic monstrosities and psychics. Quinboy serves as a prequel novelette to that tale, revealing the back stories of supporting characters in the novel.
