King of Pain – dirty little notes header image 3


Somehow, I managed to collect some of the stories I wrote in the last years, put them in a book and published it myself – all hail the internet!

The little thing is called Stop Coming to My House (which is the title of my favourite Mogwai song), has 100 incredible pages, contains 26 stories and poems from this blog here and Sonic Iceland and many other sources, AND has a super pretty cover designed by the incredible Super-Lik.

If you need a typical book-blurb to convince you to buy it, I have that as well. Even quoting other people who write stuff!

‘Marcel Krueger takes his turn as prince of the quotidian.’ – Kit Fryatt,

‘Not bad.’ Haukur Magnusson, Reykjavik Grapevine

So, if you are interested in purchasing something I’ve written and make me happy, here are your options:


Perfect. Visit my here, my UK page here or the German page here and download it.


Even better. I have a Smashwords-page that covers all major e-book formats.


I love you. You now have two options before I marry you: you can either visit my Amazon-page and order it there, OR send me a payment of 6.65 Euro or 8.99 USD (plus postage, depending on where I’m going to send the books) and let me know if you want me to do something special with the book (sign it, draw a picture of my nose, etc.). Do so via the PayPal-button below:

If you happen to live in Dublin and desire to support both a starving artist (me) and one of the best independent bookshops in town, why not head over to The Loft Bookshop on Middle Abbey Street – they sell my book, and also great literature!

    Hey Marcel! I want the book, the real one (the printed one).

    @ stiller and Noemi: if you pay via PayPal shipping to Europe (Germany/spain) is covered, so it’s 11.50 € altogether and I’ll scribble sth nice :-) AND Noemi will have it before the end of November, hehe.
    @ Martin: tomorrow.

    seems like Martin is the lucky one with the shortest delivery route.

    Mr. Krüger, I’m counting on your mad drawing skillz and I wouldn’t scoff at a nice poem, either.

    Looking forward to this!
