Publishers Weekly just released their review of The Walls of Sparta by Charles Lloyd. Needless to say, it's very positive: "Readers will be transported by this erotic trip to the past." The book is a marvelous mosaic novel about the life of Sparta's most famous king (as well as his family, suitors, and notable subjects). The author is a professor of Classics, and the prose is full of rich details without ever sacrificing compelling characters or stories.
The book releases this Summer.
We're very excited to offer this collection of short fiction and creative non-fiction by acclaimed author Keith Banner. I think if you grew up in a small town, especially one in the Rust Belt, you'll doubly appreciate his tales.
Hello, everyone. It's been too long since last I posted in this column. I aim to remedy that.
