What first seems like a procedural murder mystery is Stephen King’s return to monster-driven pulp horror. King rarely fails to deliver a great read, and The Outsider is no exception.
Yesterday I posted about The Book of Speculation, the debut novel from my friend and author Erika Swyler. Then I hopped on a train to Barnes and Noble on the Upper West Side for her book launch, where she read an excerpt and answered questions from the audience and from host Maris Kriezman.
At left is the cover of a new book, but not just any book. It’s The Book of Speculation by my friend Erika Swyler, who I have known since we were larval writers, maybe 11 or 12 years old, attending summer nerd camp together in upstate New York.
