Tomorrow morning we’re sending out a Fantastic Fall Fiction-themed edition of BookPageXTRA. The e-newsletter is filled with book recommendations that are not in our print edition.
Remember that blog post from a couple weeks ago on Tom Franklin’s Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter? Many of you expressed interest in this literary thriller set in Mississippi… and if you’re signed up for XTRA, tomorrow just might be your lucky day!
We’re giving away autographed copies of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter and The Best American Noir of the Century edited by James Ellroy and Otto Penzler, which includes stories by Harlan Ellison, Dennis Lehane, Elmore Leonard . . . and Tom Franklin, who signed the book. (In all there are 39 stories published between 1923 and 2007.)
You can’t really tell from the photo, but besides being packed with dark tales, this is one beautiful-looking book. It’s got a translucent dust jacket that just barely shows the vintage illustration underneath. (In fact, I’m tempted to rig the contest so I win it myself. Just kidding!)
