Lots happening. Things moving are moving so fast, my head is spinning. Unfortunately, none of it is of particular interest to you, so I’ll move on.
Word is this is e-book week, and folks on Twitter are recommending a lot of great books. Rather than toss out a few random selections, I thought it might be better to provide you with a quick list. Here, in no particular order, are some of my recommended e-books.
Choke on Your Lies by Anthony Neil Smith
I’m reading this book right now, and while it’s not an action-packed thriller like his Yellow Medicine, it is a strong, sordid drama filled with tension and great characters. A steal at only $2.99.
To the Devil, My Regards by Gischler & Smith
Come on. Two great flavors in one small package for one dollar. I haven’t read it yet, but it’s high on my to-read list.
Blood Feud by Cullen Bunn
Cullen is one of those writers who is about to break out in a big way. A few formatting errors aside, Blood Feud is a wild ride through a backwoods Ozark town plagued by vampires. The first-person narrative by one of the resident hillbillies really makes the book.
The Pack: Winter Kill by Mike Oliveri
What, you thought I’d get through a post like this without plugging my own work? Guess again.
The Fever Kill by Tom Piccirilli
Another book vying for the top of my to-read list. I’ve been reading Tom since he started writing horror for Leisure, and now he takes that distinct, dark flavor into thriller territory. The guy can’t be beat when it comes to creating atmosphere.
The Blonde by Duane Swierczynski
This is one of those thrillers that demonstrated high concepts and science fiction aren’t out of the question. I started with his Severance Package (which for some reason isn’t available on Kindle), then tore through his entire catalog. That’s how good these books are.
That should keep you busy a while.
Also, a quick update: the To Fight With Monsters drawing has been extended! Response has been good, and the book’s still not quite ready to go to press, so the folks at Antarctic Press have agreed to extend the drawing deadline to March 22nd. Get your order in today!
