New feature: Martin's Links

Online Store Manager Martin Sorensen is an avid reader and always on the lookout for stories and articles he thinks are of interest to our customers. Our new feature - "Martin's Links" - will highlight some of the great sites he has found. Here's his first edition:

The Guardian has done a wonderful service for those who are looking for a good book to read (fiction) by publishing their 1000 novels everyone must read. I like the way they break it down into genres, and they are extremely liberal in their classification system. I have already purchased about 20-30 of these titles for future reading.

Christopher Fowler, author of the best selling (at least at Kepler’s) Bryant and May series keeps a wonderful blog. He has a great article on his blog called ‘How to write a Murder Mystery’, that not only has the greatest Shakespeare anecdote of all time, but is-as is everything he writes- a great piece of writing.

Also, the Suspicions of Mr Whicher, coming out in March in paperback, won the Samuel Johnson prize.

Jonathan Carroll is one of my favorite authors writing today. The link below connects to a wonderful short story of his about grief and recovery. Whether you are familiar with his writing or not, it is well worth checking out.
