Hi fellow readers. A new issue of The Compulsive Reader News has now been sent out and should be hitting your in-box shortly if it hasn’t already. The current issue has ten fresh reviews including my own lengthy review of Philip Salom’s Afterworld, as well as interviews with West of Sunset’s Stewart O’Nan and Plus One’s Christopher Noxon. We also have 6 (yes 6!) book giveaways this month, including West of Sunset, Plus One, Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League by Jonathan Odell, The Price of Blood by Patricia Bracewell and more. We also have all the latest literary news from around the world. If the email gremlins got to it before you did and you didn’t get your copy, you can grab one from the Compulsive Reader Archive. If you aren’t a subscriber, you can join us free at http://www.compulsivereader.com.
