Larry, Lee, Lansdale,


The Thicket by Joe R. Lansdale.  You know how I knew Lansdale had a new book coming out?  He wouldn't stop posting about it on Facebook.  When does that guy have time to write?  He's as bad as Bill Crider.

The Maid's Version by Daniel Woodrell.  Everyone's favortie Missouri crime author writes a fictionalized account of a 1929 explosion in a dance hall and Megan Abbott does a literary swoon.

A Blind Goddess by James R. Benn.  Benn writes another WWII mystery and the Library Director want to read it.

Homeland: Carrie's Run by Andrew Kaplan.  Kaplan is hired to pen a tie-in novel and fans of the show run to take it off the shelf (hopefully).

Happy in Hell by Tad Williams.  Williams writes a fantasy novel about an angel going to Hell to visit his demon girlfriend then Williams rushes back inside to sunscreen his shaved head.

Let Him Go by Larry Watson.  Watson delivers another plains novel with grandparents trying to take their dead son's boy.  Literary fiction fans fuss for fabulous fable.

MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood.  Canadian writes a novel whose dustcover precis makes no sense.  Library Director is reminded of full frontal nudes by Obi Wan Kenobi in Young Adam.

The Good Wife by Jane Porter.  A baseball player's wife worries,the novelist Porter thanks her husband, Ty, and the book goes back to processing because the spine label is incorrect.

Never Go Back by Lee Child.  Jack Reacher punches people and has sex.
