A mixed up stack of fun books came my way over the past week. What books came into your house?
The Alehouse at the End of the World by Stevan Allred, the latest release from Forest Avenue Press. Allred's debut book of short stories, A Simplified Map of the Real World, was a delight. This new novel looks even more entertaining.
PORTLAND EVENT: Allred will be reading and signing on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 7:30 PM at Powell's City of Books. You can pre-order a signed copy of The Alehouse at the End of the World here to be shipped to you, or get one at the event.
Give to Live: Make a Charitable Gift You Never Imagined by Arlene Cogen. This practical guide to philanthropy is valuable for individuals who want to give and the professionals who guide them. It comes out in mid-November, but you can sign up on Arlene's website to get information about the book and purchase discounts, including 99¢ e-books.
The Gospel in Dorothy L. Sayers: Selections from Her Novels, Plays, Letters, and Essays by Dorothy L. Sayers (Author), Carole Vanderhoof (Editor), C. S. Lewis (Afterword). Sayers is best known for her detective series featuring Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane. But she was a noted classic translator, apologist, and theologian. This anthology traces faith-based themes through her popular fiction and other writings.
Burnside Field Lizard and Selected Stories by Theresa Griffin Kennedy. A debut collection of short stories with a striking cover by Gigi Little. You can read my Rose City Reader interview of Theresa here.
