Just letting people know I posted a review in Nasty.Brutish.Short of Megan Abbott's story "Cheer." It's a dark story about cheerleaders (I know what you're thinking - "Isn't every story about cheerleaders, by definition, dark?" Yes, of couse, but this one is even darker...). And because Megan doesn't have enough hardware, she's up for a Pushcart Prize on this one. Take a look.

First to Joe Guglilmelli of Bonnie and Joe fame. He wins the Robert L. Fish award this year and any award that goes his way is a good thing. Good people deserve good things and Joe's good people.

And to all the nominees, of course, a hearty congrats. Well deserved.

And the winner is...

Love! That's the name of the person who won the books, not a philosophical statement on my part. Anyway, if Love will get me an address to my email address (available on my website) I promise that's the only hoop.

To the other contestants, I will be adding your names to my next drawing which should be next week.

The Good Son by Russel McLean, Contest Edition...

And the winner is...Patrick. Results obtained via "ennie, meanie, minie, moe." In any event, if he contacts me offline, I'll gladly send him a copy of THE GOOD SON by Russel McLean. Fabulous book - dark, gritty, a special sort of Scottish meanness to it. A mean I like to call..."Haggis Noir."

Thanks everyone for playing.
