DOWN AMONG THE STICKS AND BONES by Seanan McGuire — 3 starred reviews!
“Beautifully crafted and smartly written, this fairy-tale novella is everything that speculative fiction readers look for: fantastical worlds, diverse characters, and prose that hits home with its emotional truths.” — Library Journal, starred review
“McGuire’s exquisitely written fairy tale is about the choices that can alter the course of a life forever, lost innocence, and what it is to love and be loved.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Exquisitely crafted, this is the rare companion novel that can stand alone.” — Booklist, starred review
MY LIFE WITH BOB: Flawed Heroine Keeps Book of Books, Plot Ensues by Pamela Paul
“Titles about reading and books abound, but this memoir stands in a class by itself. Bibliophiles will treasure, but the addictive storytelling and high-quality writing will vastly increase its audience. Highly recommended.” — Library Journal, starred review

Praise for BY THE BOOK:
“At times delightful and always entertaining, this book can be taken in large gulps, or small sips. Reading it will surely result in a monstrous and fascinating reading list.” — Library Journal, starred review
“The popular ‘By the Book’ column in the New York Times Book Review was Paul’s idea before she took the NYTBR editorial helm, and now that she’s gathered 65 of these irresistible interviews together in a book, they’ve gained magnetism and synergy. This is a book lover’s guilty pleasure, in which bookish fun is matched by substantial discussion, including those with E. L. Doctorow and Chang-rae Lee.” — Booklist
The November 2014 Indie Next list was recently announced and it includes some fabulous Macmillan titles!
THE LAUGHING MONSTERS by Denis Johnson
“In a work that’s part spy novel and part buddy tale, Johnson aptly locates his portrayal of a shadowy world of complicated relationships and ever-shifting alliances in one of the more broken places on the planet. This is what you might get if you combined Casablanca‘s cynicism and sense of intrigue with a touch of Heart of Darkness post-9/11.” — Library Journal, starred review
Library Journal editors revealed the Fall 2014 books they’re looking forward to the most, and three of them are from Macmillan:
BY THE BOOK: Writers on Literature and the Literary Life from The New York Times Book Review, edited by Pamela Paul
“I had to put down BY THE BOOK to do real work,” I wrote to one of LJ’s literature reviewers. The astute unabridged interviews feature a wide range of nonfiction and fiction writers such as Dan Savage, Neil Gaiman, and J.K. Rowling.
— Amanda Mastrull
THE ART OF NOISE: Conversations with Great Songwriters by Daniel Rachel
Originally published in the UK, it’s a thick volume that boasts new and in-depth interviews with 27 British songwriters whose popularity spans decades—everyone from Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe (Pet Shop Boys) to Noel Gallagher (Oasis) and Lily Allen talk about their craft. Read it cover to cover or skip around to your favorite artists. — Amanda Mastrull
UGLY GIRLS by Lindsay Hunter
When it comes to fiction, I’m always a sucker for a strong narrative voice that pulls me immediately into the story, and UGLY GIRLS, a tough but tender debut novel by acclaimed short story writer Lindsay Hunter, has it in spades. Teenage friends Perry, “who looked like some garden fairy,” and Baby Girl, “who wasn’t as pretty as Perry but meaner,” spend their days—and nights—cutting school, stealing cars for joyrides, eating fries at Denny’s, and texting Jamey, a high school boy who friended the girls on Facebook. But Perry and Baby Girl’s competitive relationship spirals into chaos when they discover that Jamey, who is obsessed with Perry, may not be who he says he is. — Wilda Williams
