J.R. Carroll at Momentum Books

Author Name: 

Noticed this out of the corner of my eye a while ago and have been meaning to mention how excited I got when I saw Momentum Books listing some of my favourite J.R. Carroll books and one I've not read before. 8 Hours to Die. These books were unbelievably hard to find when I finally twigged to their existence and in the main I ended up getting copies at second hand bookshops from one end of Victoria to another. Which meant every new find was a thing of real joy. And now, thanks to Momentum I'll be able to start from scratch and reread every one of them. Released early next year.

CR - A Body of Work, JM Simpson

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

A rather locally looking book with a number of references to Ballarat, which seems to mean that the author is about an hour from Ballarat on one side, and I'm about an hour the other. And then there's the action set around the Malthouse, a place I remember with considerable fondness during the MWF.
