Spring Book Season Looks Amazing
Went to pick up mail today and came home with a wealth of wonderful titles. Jim Van Pelt’s latest story collection, Flying in the Heart of the Lafayette Escadrille, arrived. B.A, Binns, the author of Pull which was well liked when I took it to youth corrections, has a new book, Being God that looks good. My old friend Patrick Jones who writes gritty realistic books that have special appeal to “at risk” teens and reluctant readers has a new book, Cassandra’s Turn, coming out in April, published by Grumpy Dragon. On top of that I also received new books written by Melina Marchetta, Pete Hautman, and Robin Benway. I am giddy with trying to figure out what to read first, just as soon as I finish Nancy Kress’s Flash Point, a first YA novel from a Hugo and Nebula winner.
