Do you still drink? Maybe a sip.

"DSH is a master of plot. This thing moves like a thriller. It is literally one of the best things I've read all year. Darkly funny… a howling success!”

Pinckney Benedict

Miracle Boy and Other Stories

"David Scott Hay has done a something incredible – an artful book about an arty subject that doesn't drop into pretension. 'Fountain' is an affecting story about tough, interesting people who hold beauty up like Achilles' shield against a very real, very bitter, and oddly funny world. A must for fans of sharp tongues and sharp writing."

“A truly unique and imaginative combination between Alan Ball, Raymond Chandler, Kafka, Walter Mosley, Elmore Leonard and even three fingers of Mickey Spillane.”

David Barr III

[PANK] Magazine interviews David Scott Hay
Hi folks, Honored and pleased to have done this interview with Damien Roos at [PANK] Magazine. Damien bought The Fountain back in October at the Brooklyn Book Fair, my official unofficial launch. He read it and responded it to it. We poured a couple over ZOOM and had a few laughs. “The Fountain is a mad dash, meta and epic and loud. Hay shreds fine art culture and all its pretensions, sounding the call for true artists to do the very thing they were born to do: Create.”   In this interview, we cover a range of topics such as…
