Thank you to Red Bull Rising for reviewing Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors, Volume 4.
Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors, Volume 4 presents essays, fiction, poetry, interviews, and photography by military-service personnel, veterans, and their families.
In his latest literary thriller, David Armand weaves together the stories of an eccentric cast of dark, frighteningly realist characters, each under suspicion of murdering a young girl, Amber Varnado, whose body is found hidden in a deep gorge at the opening of the novel.
Hard-boiled noir meets academic satire in Academy Gothic. Tate Cowlishaw is late for another faculty meeting when he discovers the body of Scoot Simkins, dean of Parshall College. Cowlishaw might be legally blind but sees that a man with three bullets in his head didn’t put them there himself. The police disagree.
