GEORGE by Frank Keating

GEORGE AND THE BIG BANG by Lucy Hawking
CHILDREN'S
Released: Aug. 28, 2012

"Labored and wrapped in a thin film of artificial drama as it is, this set of mind-expanding if scattershot exposures to some of science's biggest theories and ideas will once again find a large audience thanks more to its celebrity co-author than its content. (Science fiction/informational hybrid. 10-12)"
Like their first two collaborations, the Hawkings' third and final George book offers a hybrid mixture of made-up adventures in space/time interleaved with miniessays on, as one character unoriginally puts it, "life, the Universe, and everything." Read full book review >

INSPECTOR ANDERS AND THE SHIP OF FOOLS by Marshall Browne
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 15, 2002

"A vade mecum to political infighting as thoughtfully impressive as the series debut, The Wooden Leg of Inpector Anders (2001)."

THE WOODEN LEG OF INSPECTOR ANDERS by Marshall Browne
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 1, 2001

"Solid stuff, and though one might wish for more of Dibdin's facility with language, there's plenty here to admire from the iconoclastic Anders to the Machiavellian twists of Italian politics."
Fans of Michael Dibdin's Aurelio Zen mysteries will welcome this first mystery from Australian author Browne, whose hero, Inspector Anders of the Rome Police, is equally thoughtful and courageous in his own unorthodox way. Read full book review >
