must. go. to. bookstore.
Yay! Jonathan Carroll's new book is out. I've had The Wooden Sea on my wishlist for ages, but somehow hadn't paid attention enough to notice that it's, like, out now. You can even read the first chapter online, but you better be sure you're near a bookstore when you do it!
Carroll is one of those rare writers whose work I have to get the minute it comes out. I can't stand to wait. I devour his books if I don't make a conscious effort to slow myself down and savor them.
'Course I haven't found time to read lately, I've been so busy with other things. But when I've got Mike Ford's latest book in my to read queue and a new Jonathan Carroll book waiting in the wings, it's time to shove everything else out of the way and read.
Now if my sinus headache would just go away . . .
If you haven't read any of Carroll's stuff before, I'm not sure how to describe it. Dark. Magical. It's a whole universe, yet it's still somehow our universe . . . kindof. Um. Visit the official website, read what Neil Gaiman says about him.
One of Carroll's first books-- The Land of Laughs -- is also just out in new paperback edition.
And an evil little tome it is, too. Land of Laughs, that is.
