Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water, here are a few more links to posts about books. Just a few, though.
Sarah Weinman tells us that Edward Wright has found a US publisher for his praised book Damnation Falls. On his Amazon UK page, the author is paired with Fred Vargas and Declan Hughes. I have never read any of his John Horn series, but the books have been in my Amazon basket for what seems like forever, based on various recommendations.
One of my favourite crime-fiction reviewers, David Montgomery, is starting a "book of the week" feature. If it is as good as his blurb machine, as I'm sure it will be, it will be a joy indeed. First up is Volk's Game by Brent Ghelfi.
We definitely don't need no stinkin' trumpets, says Declan Burke, about his book The Big O (or "the embiggened O", the mind boggles). I can see a kind of inevitability about this: I'm just going to have to read it. Yes, Crime Always Pays.
Now all of the above may be rather old news to you, as it has been lurking neglected my Google Reader "shared items" for a while, so shoot me if you know it all already. Competing interests, or something like that, are to blame for the delay.
