“In My Mailbox” is a weekly event hosted by Kristie at The Story Siren through which bloggers can showcase all the books they’ve received/purchased/absconded with. And without anymore jibber-jabber, let's get to the books!
Physical Review Copies
Death at Willow Creek Mine by J. D. Savid - The story goes a little something like this: a trio of brothers pitch in together to purchase an old gold mine in the American west, hoping to fulfill a lifelong dream, roughing it as they attempt to mine out the few remaining veins of ore. But things go awry (as the the title of the book would suggest), and the brothers have to deal with an untimely death. It's a short book, but it looks pretty interesting.
Thank You for Your Cooperation by Adam Wasserman - This one is a dystopian/sci-fi/dark comedy combination that looks hella interesting (to use Cartman's phrase). I don't know much about the plot other than that, but the giant "all seeing" eye on the front cover makes me think of 1984 and The Great Gatsby, both of which make me all giddy on the inside.
Electronic Review Copies
Soldier Hill by Phil Rossi - In this novella a couple of teenage boys in 1983 try to save a Vietnam war memorial in their town. It's a Young Adult work, which isn't really my cup of tea, but the author is a silver tongued devil, and he convinced me to give it a shot. He also flattered the hell out of me, said I was one of the more honest reviewers he'd seen and he wanted some honest feedback. I mean, who could say no to that?
So now that I’ve shown you mine, its time to show me yours. What was in your mailbox this week?
