It was a long day at work today so I am only getting around to posting this now. Given that it's late in the evening this is going to be a short post.

Local Writers and Events

Mandy DeGeit participates in a blog hop, while the blog Ottawa Horror has a review of ChiSeries where authors performed fantasy and dark science fiction stories at the Royal Oak on Laurier East.

Upcoming Books

The Bookworm notes that Ian Rankin is publishing a new novel with detective John Rebus this fall.  Saints of the Shadow Bible is scheduled to be published in hard cover on November 7.

Book Recommendations

Maria Vicente of I Believe In Story gives her top eight list of books that are better than movies, while Pearl Pirie describes some of the books on her "to read" list. For its part, Literary Tourist recommends five different children's books, and Only Connect outlines some recent reads that you can add to your reading list.
