Here is one by a debut thriller author, Golden Dawn by Thomas M. Kostigen, which arrives on Oct. 16th. Kostigen is an ethics columnist for Dow Jones MarketWatch and a former editor of Bloomberg News. He knows how to write. The Golden Dawn is an ancient sect of Zoroastrians said to keep a secret regarding the leader who will arise before the End Times. The president of Iraq exploiting this secret and attempting to get nuclear weapons to support his efforts. Sounds really good.
I attending an address by Sherman Alexie back several years ago. He is one of the funniest, intelligent, irreverent people I have heard. I love to read his work because it makes me laugh. His excels at short stories and he has lots of ideas that turn into short stories. His newest work, Blasphemy: New and Selected Stories, arrives on Oct. 2nd. It contains 15 of his best-known stories and 15 new stories (with topics such as donkey basketball leagues to lethal wind turbines).
