Josh's Staff Picks
The latest in Lansdale's brilliant Hap & Leonard series. East Texas crime fiction with the voice of a master storyteller.
D. Harlan Wilson weaves a tapestry of narrative ultraviolence and wages an attack against conventional fiction while calling for a higher understanding of what it means to write, to read, and to make meaning.
Nakamura is widely considered to be one of the finest crime writers going. This, his earliest novel, is a perfect example of why. Lean and vicious, this is a must-read.
Wytovich is one of the leading writers of horror poetry. This, her latest collection, has been nominated for the Stoker Award. Keep an eye on this one.
Revert is one of my favorite writers, and this could very well be his masterpiece. A meditation on relationships and identity wrapped in absurdity. Don't miss it.
As first novels go, Wolf in White Van is exceptional. The narrative works backwards, leading to a cataclysmic event hinted at throughout. One of the best books of 2014, and one that deserves your attention.
