Angels of Destruction, a Book by Keith Donohue

Author, Keith Donohue, sent me an email to let me know his new book, Angels of Destruction, is out (thanks, Keith!).  You might remember that name from a previous post I did about his book, The Stolen Child.

If you’re interested in finding out more about this author, you can read his blog, called Pluck’s Bicycle.  If you’d like to know more about Angels of Destruction, check out this book review at The Washington Post, from which the following excerpt was taken. 

“Sean Fallon, a boy bereft by his father’s abandonment, befriends the peculiar new student in his third-grade class…But Sean soon witnesses strange manifestations of Norah’s distinctly unchildlike talents: She folds origami cranes, then makes them fly; she blows smoke rings that would make Gandalf envious. More disturbingly, one night Sean glances into her mouth and sees a galaxy of stars.”

With Intent to Commit Horror

With Intent to Commit Horror is a website authored by librarian, Greg Fisher (also known as The Undead Rat), with the purpose of helping people find their next good horror novel.  It’s very well organized with author lists, series lists, theme lists, etc.  (Would you expect anything else from a librarian?) 

This site is a goldmine for horror fans like myself.  I don’t even know how he keeps up with all this information even if he is a librarian.  The posts, like all good blogs, are also written in a warm and personal style, and you learn a little bit about the blog author, as well as about the book authors.  For example, after his wife’s computer crashed and she took over his, he writes:

“Her late computer was a workhorse while mine, as we discovered crash after crash, was little more than a prancing pony.”

This blog is well worth a visit, so definitely check it out.
