Gregg Kulick: The Breaking of Eggs

New Stuff

Yo, some new books that will be coming out between now and May. The Unnamed is the new novel by the author of Then We Came to the End - supposedly quite different from that office tragicomedy, about a successful lawyer with a bad obsessive compulsive problem. Then we have the new Stieg Larsen, and I must say, this might be my favorite of the series so far. I have a feeling Firefly Brothers will have cool effects - the story follows a pair of depression-era bank robbers. And the Point Omega photo reminds me of the colors on the new Stephen King - the novel involves looking through binoculars at the some other factors which I'm sure informed the infinity symbol.
