Hi everyone!

I am the communications associate for the American Humanist Association and my job includes duties with Humanist Press, our publishing house and a place where we are placing a renewed focus.

As part of the effort, we have several new titles lined up and I am interested in hearing from any of you who do regular book reviews. If Humanist Press books appeal to you, please contact me directly with a sentence about where you normally post your reviews. My email is bmagee@americanhumanist.org

Thanks!

Cool - I will check those book recommendations out!

Another plug for Will Self. This time "Liver", 4 novellas of varying length about that particular organ and touching on drink, drugs, asissted suicide, miracle cures and a modern Prometheus. Read in under 24 hours!

Just read Brendan Behan's "Borstal Boy". Lots of sentimental Irish nationalism and Catholicism but also a description of a suprisingly enlightened juvenile penal system in the years 1941-43. Enjoyed it and can recommend it.

I'll put those on my wish list at Amazon - they sound really interesting!

I'd like to recommend to everyone Robert J. Sawyer's outstanding WWW Trilogy--WWW: Wake, WWW: Watch, and WWW: Wonder. (It's easy to remember which one to read when--just read them in alphabetical order.) The books are well-written and almost impossible to put down. Not only are the main characters interesting, they're people you'd like to have as friends. They express values that I believe are common to just about all non-theists. The first book was a Hugo nominee last year. The second book won the Prix Aurora this year for best English-language Canadian SF novel. And I'm confident the third book will do just as well. It's some of the best science fiction I've read in a long time.

There's a brand new look to my Parsina Press web site--not just a new color scheme and a more streamlined appearance, but new features as well: a wider choice of buy-links, images of past book covers, reviews, a lot more information.

Plus, to celebrate the redesign, I've got a special limited-time offer for my fans: many of my prime ebook titles are 1/2 off with the coupon codes on this page. Some of the books, like And Not Make Dreams Your Master, Polly!, and Assault on the Gods, will definitely appeal to free-thinkers. There's even a bonbon--a free copy of my story "The World Where Wishes Worked." The coupons expire at the end of the year, so I hope you'll come on over soon and take a look around. Let me know what you think, and pleasant reading!

Has anyone read Shantaram?  Just read it and enjoyed it very much.  Highly recommended!

Regardless, my joke was about the fact that you wouldn't expect Richard Dawkins and Glenn Beck to give the same book a good review, even if Beck only gave it a good review because of their friendship.
