Fill you e-reader today with their stellar opening lineup, including titles like FREEDOM CLUB, by Saul Garnell, WOLF DAWN, by Susan Cartwright, and Bishoff’s THE DESTINY DICE, praised by Piers Anthony as “Hilarious!”.

Living in St. Jude, a 110-year-old dying city on the edge of the Mississippi, is tough. But when a letter informs fourteen-year-old Cinque of the passing of the father he never met, he is faced with an incomplete past and an uncertain future. A curse meant for his father condemns Cinque to a slow death even as it opens his eyes to the strange other world around him. With help from the ghost, an enigmatic White Woman, a Loa, and a devious shape-shifter, Cinque gathers the tools to confront the ghost of his dead father. But sometimes too much knowledge can be dangerous – and the people he trusts most are those poised to betray him. Buy your copy of PICKING UP THE GHOST today!

Show Notes

  • Brent and Shaun are back for more in 2012, and we want to digitally high-five, hug and fist-bump Moses Siregar on the successful birth of his new baby daughter!
  • First order of business: Books of 2011. Now, much like the list Bryan Thomas Schmidt presented in episode 157, our list is not of books that were published in 2011, but titles we read and enjoyed in 2011. We also look ahead to 2012 at the titles we most look forward to.
  • Sponsor Showcase: Susan Cartwright joins us from Sydney to discuss WOLF DAWN, a novel that some have called controversial. We discuss what themes and subjects may seem controversial, but it’s all about context! The novel sounds absolutely fascinating, so please check it out and send in your thoughts after you read it.

  1. Just thought I’d mention that I went ahead and purchased Susan Cartwright’s book, and also added it to Goodreads. If anyone else is interested in marking it “to read” or “read” or whatever on Goodreads, you can now find it by ASIN or title.
