    Thanks for the info. BTW I am not envious of you folks having a white halloween. That is just flat out crazy!

    Edit: Fixed the authors name...Mayberry v Maberry oops.

    UPS comes between 4 an 7 pm. one more hour to wait. I'm only a third of the way through War&Peace. Maybe I should take a break for Kin. I am on vacation next week to go to Dallas...

    Glad you're enjoying it bookworm! Oddly enough, I wasn't in a dark place when I wrote KIN. That came much later.

    Another cool review for KIN (no spoilers):

    "If you took the moral quandaries about revenge, justice and violence against evil from Dennis Lehane’s Patrick Kenzie novels, spread it over the sprawling cast of a Stephen King thriller, and mixed it with the Southern Gothic grotesques of Eudora Welty, you might end up with something like Kealan Patrick Burke’s new novel, Kin...an unflinching examination of the aftermath of atrocities, both foreign and domestic, rural and urban; it is a gripping portrayal of fully realized villains and flawed heroes; it is a treatise on the cycle of violence and on the bonds of family; and it is, ultimately, a novel about the redemptive power of defiance." - Litstack.com

    Definitely look forward to reading this one when I get to it. Have a few others to start or finish first though. If I didn't actually have much homework this semester like usual (Some semesters I barely had any at all because of the nature of the classes) I'd get to it a lot quicker or may already be reading it.

    That's what I love about books. There's no hurry. They'll be there when you're ready for them. (Glad to hear you have less homework too; the mere idea of it reminds me of being in my room pretending to study exams with NIGHT VISIONS V hidden behind my physics textbook.)

    Plus, they're having a sale: grab 2 books from the "other publishers" section and you get the cheapest one free!

    Finished Kin not too long ago...

    Great read, I had high hopes for this book before getting down to it, and it was exactly what I wanted!
