Tighten your pants and get ready
What I'm reading: Hell Is Empty
by Craig Johnson.
For those of you not hip to the Biting-Edge jive, Jeanne and I belong to the League of Reluctant Adults
, a cabal of literary delinquents so secretive and powerful that we make the Illuminati look like impotent hermits. Our tendrils span the globe but mostly where ink-stained wretches tend to gather, such bars and pie shops (especially
if there's free WiFi.)
And to further our dominance of the world, the League unleashes a double whammy of awesomeness not seen since the explosion of Mount Krakatoa (our doing, by the way).
Plant your feet, take a deep breath, and gird your loins. Check out Jaye Wells' newest urban fantasy, Dirty Magic
. Trust me. No one does this kind of dirty like Wells.
Unless we're taking about Nicole Peeler. Her latest Jane True novel, Tempest Reborn
(book 6 in the series), is also worth girding your loins for.
When you've caught your breath and ungirded your loins, don't forget to mark your calendar for the next Denver Noir@Bar. Thursday, May 23, 8PM, Juanita's Eat, 32 S. Broadway, Denver. Wear a raincoat for the blood spatter.
