Chuck Wendig

I’m not quite certain how I stumbled upon the above book trailer, which promotes Chuck Wendig’s Miriam Black series, but it was love at first viewing.  Gritty and spare, words dancing to pitch perfect narration….  Wow!  Library Guy says click the link(s) below to gather intel and/or request copies of this dark and disturbing duo.

Mockingbird

“…Darker than dark, Mockingbird will take you on a journey you won’t soon forget, so fortify your stomach and settle in, because you’re going to want to read this one in one sitting.” — My Bookish Ways

***********

Blackbirds 

“Wendig’s second novel is a splendidly profane slice of urban fantasy – hard, dark and fast. Slick one-liners and laugh-out-loud descriptions pepper the prose, making Blackbirds a black comedy that even the Grim Reaper could smile at.” — The Financial Times

The Awesome Anthem

Friday morning, and the sun was once again absent.  No need to worry though.  A chance discovery of Sekou Andrews’ The Awesome Anthem  lit-up daybreak with a delightful mix of humor, inspiration, and poetry.  We’re talking honest to goodness bona fide soul shine here, and certainly well-worth the time it takes to watch.
