Monday Fun Day! (10/1/2012 Edition)

Happy October, librarians!

- Kirkus Reviews named 10 Hot Crime Novels for Colder Days and half of them were Macmillan titles! Their list of chilly thrillers includes SALVATION OF A SAINT by Keigo Higashino, BLOOD LANCE by Jeri Westerson, YOUNG PHILBY by Robert Littell, CITY OF SAINTS by Andrew Hunt, and TARGET LANCER by Max Allan Collins.

- Congratulations to designers Charlotte Strick and Marina Drukman for their recognition in Design Observer's 2011 50 Covers Winners! The list included ORIENTATION AND OTHER STORIES by Daniel Orozco (cover design by Strick) and ADVENTURES IN ORGASMATRON by Christopher Turner (cover design by Drukman).

- Las Vegas Clark County Library District listed A KILLING IN THE HILLS by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Julia Keller as a BookPage Notable Title.

Expect long delays on all inquiries this week. Talia and I are very busy keeping tabs on this party:
