Giveaway: The Uninnocent by Bradford Morrow


As many of you know, I have a great love for gritty books.  I mean, I salivate over anything by James Ellroy.  And part of the reason I loved the The Black Company so much was because it was freakin’… raw.  So when I heard that Open Road Media was sponsoring a special event called “Stories of Grit,” I was immediately intrigued.

It’s a celebration of the raw, edgy magnificence of gritty literature—mostly focusing on short story compilations.  A full list of the titles being showcased can be found on the Open Road Blog, and they’ve set up a Scribd collection too.

But the best part?  They gave me the choice of one book in the collection to give away on this here blog.  I selected Bradford Morrow’s The Uninnocent.  It’s a collection of the critically acclaimed author’s finest gothic tales.  In “The Hoarder,” a young man whose childhood hobby of collecting sea shells and birds’ nests takes a sinister turn when he becomes obsessed with acquiring his brother’s girlfriend (selected as one of the Best American Noir Stories of the Century). An archeologist summoned to attend his beloved sister’s funeral is astonished to discover it is not she who has died, but someone much closer to him, in “Gardener of Heart.” And a blind motivational speaker has a crisis of faith when he suddenly regains his sight, only to discover life was better lived in the dark, in “Amazing Grace.”

To win an electronic copy of The Uninnocent for yourself, just sign up using the Rafflecopter widget below.  And don't forget to check out the video about the book, too.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.
