Brian Panowich's Bull Mountain.
"Bull Mountain has everything you would want in this genre: outlaws, grit, violence and filial loyalties being smashed together and pulled apart, all with a literary grace that is both natural and surprising."
The Suicide of Claire Bishop by Carmiel Banasky
"I’ll just go ahead and say it now- Carmiel Banasky’s physiological tour de force The Suicide of Claire Bishop is going to be one of THOSE books. You know, one of the novels that everyone is talking about this fall."
Bud Smith's F 250
"Many a novel has tried to walk the line Smith takes here and the story ends only in hipster posturing and pretention. Without a doubt, Bud Smith’s F 250 is the real deal."
Then there's also the books that I was lucky enough to obtain an advance copy of. Be on the lookout for these beauties in the coming months....
