Catalog Season-St Martin’s Minotaur

bruen cover.jpg Checking out the Fall 2008 St Martin’s/Minotaur catalog the stand out cover is November’s Once Were Cops in which Ken Bruen finally sets his signature hard-boiled style in NYC. Favorite title has to be Hark, The Herald Angel Screamed by Mignon F. Ballard also out in November. Favorite back story is Zoe Sharp who’s coming out with Third Strike in October. Seems back in 2006 the winner of a contest to go shooting with her at a local range after Bouchercon was actually blind (see her blog post for October 06). They way they got around this was by placing cheap Radio Shack radios behind the targets which gave the blind woman something to aim at. She did surprisingly well.
