Mailbox Monday: The Grow and McCallandia
Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.
I got two great looking books last week, just in time for summer fun:
The Grow by Lindsay R. Mohlere.
Just because Oregon legalized pot doesn't mean you can't spin a really good heist story about gang of thieves out to steal a ton of marijuana from a Mexican cartel grow operation hidden in an Oregon National Forest. Just flipping through The Grow, I can tell it's a perfect summer thriller!
McCallandia by Bill Hall.
This alternate history imagines a United States if Oregon's popular, pro-environment governor, Tom McCall, had succeeded Richard Nixon as President when Nixon resigned in 1973. There is some buzz that McCallandia is "the greatest political novel in Oregon history." That assessment comes from the novel's publisher, Matt Love of Nestucca Spit Press, but still, it's pretty big praise!
You can order McCallandia from Nestucca Spit Press or Powell's Books.
