The Lineup: Weekly Links

Contrasted ConfinementTwo of our most hotly-anticipated reads of the summer, THE PROPHET by Michael Koryta and DARE ME by Megan Abbott, have been receiving great reviews and great coverage from papers and magazines across the nation and the ‘net. Check out praise for Abbott’s newest from the likes of Newsday, New York Daily News, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Entertainment Weekly. Michael Koryta, meanwhile, has a great piece on football in the post-Sandusky world in the Wall Street Journal that dovetails nicely with the themes of his new novel.

More in the mood for good conversation? Don’t miss Michael Koryta’s interview with Dean Koontz, or Megan Abbott’s interview with Laura Lippman.

Have you checked in with Triggers Down lately?

Deadline reports Fox has picked up GUN MACHINE, the hotly anticipated new novel by Warren Ellis that William Gibson has called “a mad police procedural….delightful,” for development as a TV series. Congrats to Warren! Even more to anticipate as the book’s January 2013 release gets ever closer…

Looking for a soundtrack for the weekend? Bet this Tom Waits video will do the trick.
