Book Discovery - newly-published and overlooked books!
The Greenland Breach, by Bernard Besson
A cli-fi spy novel by a prizewinning novelist and former top-level French intelligence officer.

A fast-paced combination of environmental catastrophe, geopolitical stakes, freelance spies and Bond-like action. The Arctic ice caps are breaking up. Europe and the East Coast of the United States brace for a tidal wave. Meanwhile, former French intelligence officer John Spencer Larivière, his karate-trained, steamy Eurasian partner, Victoire, and their computer-genius sidekick, Luc, pick up an ordinary freelance assignment that quickly leads them into the glacial silence of the great north, where a merciless war is being waged for control of discoveries that will change the future of humanity.

But someone else wants them too, someone who will stop at nothing, not even murder. For Flick, the small town of Faringdon is suddenly no longer safe. Accused of murder, and with no one left she can trust, she must run. Or die.

The Life of Death, by Katrina Joyner
A rarely done quick sketch commentary by Katrina "Death" Joyner of the Writers of the Apocalypse regarding random events in her life. Normally "The Life of Death" can only be seen as online voting incentives for Katrina's webcomics and in small spurts in the back of her minis, but this volume compiles the first 32 comics produced in incentive secret. They're sloppily drawn, they're funny, and they're (exaggerated) true stories. Maybe you can relate....
