Dzanc Books Update

Literary master and meta-fiction champion Robert Coover's long await The Brunist Day of Wrath, sequel to his award-winning The Origin of the Brunists, is both a scathing indictment of fundamentalism and a careful examination of a world where religion competes with money, common sense, despair, and reason.

Stephen Grahm Jones' Not for Nothing, a novel written in second person, is a twisty noir thriller about an ex detective living in his home town's lone storage facility.

 Byrd is Kim Church's debut novel Told through letters and sharply drawn vignettes about a young woman who gives birth to a son-Byrd-and surrenders him for adoption without telling the father, little imagining how the secret will shape their lives.
