Gischler and Esiler Make Sweet Fiction


The Order of the Forge by Victor Gischler. Compilation of a series of comics with artwork by Tazio Bettin.  George Washington fights evil with Ben Franklin and Paul Revere at his side.


The God's Eye View by Barry Eisler. More NSA shenanigans and violence by Eisler.  Eisler does a great job of taking the mostly unknown topics of real-life spying and espionage and makes them integral to his novels.


Doctor Who: four Doctors by Paul Cornell.  Chaos rules when three Doctors meet! Yeah, sure it does.

The Wolves by Alex Berenson.  The billionaire who tried to trick the U.S. and Iran into a war has gone into hiding. A secret agent looks for the billionaire.


The Geeky Chef Cook Book by Cassandra Reeder.  Recipes based off SciFi, Fantasy and video games. Includes Romulan Ale, Plomeek Soup, Soylent Green (well, not really), and Cauldron Cakes.

The Spectre of Joe R. Lansdale

Hap and Leonard

Honky Tonk Samurai by Joe R. Lansdale. Erstwhile PIs Hap and Leonard bumble their way through another violent episode. The new TV series is coming out.


Spectre starring James Bond. I've not seen this flick nor read a review or seen previews. I want everything to be a surprise.

The Big Bang Theory: Seventh Season starring [actors]. People sure do love this show.


Brotherhood in Death by J.D. Robb. Does Robb have a ghost writer helping her out? There are a lot books by Nora Roberts under her own name as well.

Carol by Patrica Highsmith. Reprint of the 1952 as a tie-in for the recent movie. Original title is The Price of Salt.

Breakdown by Jonathan Kellerman. Another thriller with Alex Delaware. I've never been to Delaware but my cousin lived there for a couple years.

Carpe Diem, Illinois by Kristin A. Oakley. Was this a Wisconsin author? I cannot recall. Let me check ... Yep, she lives in Madison and also teaches writing.  This book is a suspense novel. I think. I was in Madison yesterday for Library Legislative Day, it went OK.

Jane and the Waterloo Map by Stephanie Barron. Mystery featuring a fictionalized Jane Austen.


Take Care: The Sleep Guide by Sarah Moran. The Take Care series is one of seven books covering multiple aspects of wellness.  Moran used come to the library early to write.
