No More Blogging Today. Blame Author Ken Bruen!

Yeah, yeah, yeah. There’s tons of stuff for me to read online and there’s some posts I’d really like to work on, but…

The NYPL last night delivered into my greedy mitts the latest book in Ken Bruen‘s Jack Taylor series, Priest.

In the prior novel, The Dramatist, Bruen did something so fucking shocking that I was literally stunned. I had to stop reading and wipe tears from my eyes. I couldn’t believe he did what he did.

Then I thought, No, old Ken is having us on, taking the piss. It can’t be. The next novel in the series will clarify the ambiguity.

Well, this morning I read the first two chapters.

Fuck, the shock remains. What I feared he had done, he did!

So I’m taking the day off to go read Priest.

Christ, even in its first chapter he pulls off something shocking.

That’s Ken Bruen for ya.

You must read this guy!

Footnote for the unobservant: Ken Bruen has been in my Blogroll from the beginning. Get his books. Now!
