Prepub goodies

July 26, 2011

Another two boxes of advance reader copies have arrived and I’m happy to share to first responders among Sno-Isle staff.  Here’s what’s on offer today:

Alice Hoffman:  The Dovekeepers.  Her latest follows the lives of four women during the Roman siege of Masada.

Deborah Lawrenson:  The Lantern.  This is a first novel and it’s worth the less-than-lyrical writing.  Stick with it until the very end and you’ll be reminded of Rebecca but with better food and wine because you’re in France.

Terry Pratchett:  Snuff.  This is volume 39 of Discworld.  That’s Sir Terry to you.

Rebecca Coleman:  Kingdom of Childhood.  Lots of buzz on this one – kindergarten teacher has an affair with a 16-year-old student.  The cover is fairly steaming…

    Hi, Nancy,
    “The Lantern” sounds intriguing if it’s still available…I loved du Maurier’s “Rebecca”, and I’m still trying to find a good ghost story since Cherie Priest’s “Four and twenty blackbirds” (a gothic trilogy, albeit Southern US instead of southern France, whose sequels both failed to live up to the original).
    Thanks,
    Kelli B @ CAM

    It’s yours and I think you’ll like it. I kept thinking I would stop reading it (it’s not great literature) but the ending is worth the effort.

    I’ll try out The Kingdom of Childhood – just read another blurb about it in the most recent LJ. Thanks!

    Kristin: It’s on top of my file cabinet, if you want to help yourself.
