A CD. A Book.

Musical Instruments Are Played by Australians. Those Sounds Are Recorded. The Recordings Are Pressed Into Plastic Discs. The Library Buys One of Those Discs to Lend to the Public.

Gumboot Soup by The King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. Weird Australians play weird, modern psychedelic tunes.

OK, that one is not so psychedelic. How about this one:


Knuckledragger by Rusty Barnes. Getting this novel cataloged took a loooooong, looooooong time. A crime novel with a loan shark's money collector getting in trouble with his boss. If you like this book we also have a previous Barnes novel, Ridgerunner. Ridgerunner is a good read.
