Happy Halloween 2017!

Happy Halloween everyone! No tricks here, just bookish treats:

WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ by David Wong
“Wong’s wildly mind-bending third installment (after THIS BOOK IS FULL OF SPIDERS) of the adventures of protagonist David Wong is filled with the humorous horror readers have come to expect. While the story gleefully wallows in absurdity, thoughtful themes of addiction, perception, and the drive to do the right thing quickly emerge beneath the vivid and convoluted imagery. The plot’s rapid pace holds the reader’s attention to the truly bitter end.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

TWIN PEAKS: THE FINAL DOSSIER by Mark Frost
The crucial sequel to the New York Times bestselling THE SECRET HISTORY OF TWIN PEAKS, this novel bridges the two series, and takes readers deeper into the mysteries raised by the new series. “Devotees of the cult TV series Twin Peaks, due for a revival in 2017 on Showtime, will welcome this inventive jigsaw puzzle of a book from one of the show’s creators.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review on THE SECRET HISTORY OF TWIN PEAKS

AFTER THE END OF THE WORLD by Jonathan L. Howard
Howard’s richly complex sequel to CARTER & LOVECRAFT, featuring bookseller Emily Lovecraft and detective Daniel Carter. “This is an entertaining and meticulously crafted mix of speculative history, suspense, sardonic humor, and cosmic horror.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE TROUBLE WITH TWELFTH GRAVE by Darynda Jones
“It’s bad enough that Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is busy protecting a newbie PI venture, handling the Vatican’s inquiries about her daughter, and covering up a murder. But now her beloved but now unrecognizable Reyes, the Son of Satan, is determined to destroy the world, and when someone starts attacking humans attuned to the supernatural world, Charley can’t help but suspect him. And you thought you were having a hard day. Twelfth (obviously) in the New York Times and USA Today best-selling series.” — Library Journal, pre-pub alert readmoreremove

Friday Reads: THE SECRET HISTORY OF TWIN PEAKS

Happy Friday, friends! Our highly anticipated #FridayReads pick is THE SECRET HISTORY OF TWIN PEAKS by Mark Frost.

From the co-creator of the landmark television series Twin Peaks comes a novel fans have been waiting to get their hands on for 25 years that deepens the mysteries of that iconic town in ways that not only enrich the original series but prepares fans for the upcoming Showtime episodes.

There’s an awesome book trailer, plus our friends at Macmillan Audio recently revealed the all-star cast for the audiobook edition of THE SECRET HISTORY OF TWIN PEAKS: original Twin Peaks cast members Kyle MacLachlan, Russ Tamblyn, Michael Horse, David Patrick Kelley, and Chris Mulkey join Amy Shiels, Robert Knepper, and James Morrison, who are appearing in Showtime’s new Twin Peaks—plus co-creator/author Mark Frost and additional featured actors Annie Wersching and Len Cariou. Wow!

Entertainment Weekly, Pitchfork, Vulture, and the 405 all jumped on the announcement. Of the audiobook, Frost says, “I am thrilled that both original cast members and new actors will be coming together on this project to bring this other aspect of the world of Twin Peaks to life.”

THE SECRET HISTORY OF TWIN PEAKS won’t be available from Flatiron Books & Macmillan Audio until October 18, so we’ll just have to be content with our slice of cherry pie and cup of coffee until then.
