Kent Harrington – The Rat Machine

Kent Harringtons – The Rat MachineWe're proud to stock the latest book The Rat Machine from one of our all-time favourite thriller writers; Kent Harrington.

A great thing about being an indie bookseller is you can make that extra effort and stock wonderful things as much as you want.

A bunch of years ago we stumbled upon a great noir author from the US west coast by the name of Kent Harrington. Dia de los Muertos was the first one we read and it completely bowled us over. We then kept buying his new titles from Dennis McMillan's publishing house in New Mexico.

Then things went quiet for a bit but we are now in touch with Kent and he has just supplied us with a shipment of his new novel The Rat Machine.

Kent Harrington's web page has more in-depth information: essay about the cover, character dossiers, a playlist, and an excerpt.

We're pretty sure we're the only shop in Northern Europe to stock this. Possibly even Europe? So we ship all over Europe and take PayPal. http://www.kentharrington.com/the-rat-machine-in-europe

Oh - and even though Kent's other titles are not in print we can get you copies anyway. Let us know if you're interested via our Book finder service or write info@bookshop.se

For the love of dinosaurs

My Beloved Brontosaurus - Brian SwitekMany of us remember a childhood obsession with dinosaurs. Sooner or later, most of us grow out of it – but some never do. Something for which the rest of us should be grateful, because amazing discoveries have been made for the love of dinosaurs.

Interview with Andrew Kaufman

Andrew Kaufman in the bookshop

Andrew Kaufman - Born Weird1. Born Weird is a fantastic 'un-put-downable' book! Where did you get your inspiration for the story?

"Born Weird," is a story about family and I got my inspiration from my family, but not directly. Although several members of my family still don't believe me, there is no particular member of my family that inspired any of the characters. The inspiration came from having a family, being part of a family—experiencing that strange, seemingly paradoxical nature of families where they love you like no one else, while simultaneously being harder and more demanding on you than anyone else could possible be. All in the name of love. It's that experience that I've tried to exaggerate, make mythic, in "Born Weird."

2. I love the word 'Blursings'. Have you coined any other words and can you tell us what they mean?!
