A contemporary western set in the wilds of northern California, the Last Cowboys of San Geronimo is tale of rivalry between two brothers that results in murder.  A modern Cain and Abel tale with a compelling plot that interspersed with riveting flashbacks that tracks the tense antagonistic relationship that results in the elder brother’s death.  The novel is well written and transitions smoothly from the perspectives of the main characters over time.

Valente explores a completely original universe of superheroes through a series linked stories from the points of view of the females that have been “refrigerated”—those comic book women that have ever been killed, brainwashed, driven mad, disabled, or had their powers taken in order to further the storyline of the male characters in the superhero genre.  The Refrigerator Monologues is an exceptionally well-written work of fiction examining the lives of six female superheroes and the girlfriends of superheroes and treated with love, gravity, and humor. 

by Emmanuel Carrere

This novel, a best-seller in France, is a brilliantly written novelization of the first decades of the Christian church reinvented as a parable for the author’s own life.  A cross between fiction, biography, autobiography and history, The Kingdom follows the group of early Christians through the early founding.  A skillful storyteller, Carrere re-creates the climate of the New Testament and meshes his own account with the central tenets of the faith with the lives of the first Christians.
