Brian Costello; more epubs

Michael’s been working hard making the site a little better and easier on the eye so it seemed fitting that he be the first person to start recommending books. One of the books he recommends, Redemption in Indigo, is now available in multiple formats—as is Georges-Olivier Châteaureynaud’s A Life on Paper. Both of these are newish Small Beer titles, one from a writer from Barbados, one from France; one is a novel, one a collection; both are excellent, and both are very different from one another. (Another new Small Beer title, Meeks, just got a fantastic review in next Sunday’s New York Times Book Review, get it here.)

Michael also added a link to our Facebook page and added these updates to the left hand side. We spent a good part of last week massaging various files and pieces of software (including Google, Open Office, Excel, Acrobat, Mysql—which makes me go, eek!) to get them all to talk to one another. The upshot of it all is: still working on it. So if we can get them all to talk nicely the Fairy Tale Review books and journals should go live next week. They are weird and great in true fairy tale manner!

And we added one more Featherproof book— The Enchanters vs. Sprawlburg Springs by Brian Costello which comes to you at a low low intro price and with a great quote from Joe Meno:

“With this book, Brian Costello has done the nearly impossible: He’s managed to document the secret world of a rock n’ roll band in hilarious, satirical detail. The Enchanters… is as important as Moby Dick: the song by Led Zeppelin, not the book. His prose wields the same immortal bombast and ferocity as a John Bonham drum solo.”
—Joe Meno, author of Hairstyles of the Damned and Bluebirds Used to Croon in the Choir
