Shout-out from Blake Crouch

"At the moment, I'm tearing through Michael Koryta's new book, So Cold the River. It's a departure from his PI series and his excellent crime fiction standalone, Envy the Night, but I'm loving it. The main character is a washed-up filmmaker reduced to shooting video montages for funerals, and he goes to this strange town to investigate the history of his reclusive subject who no one seems to know anything about. This is no doubt Koryta's strongest book yet." (via Writers Read)

Wired Mag is sweet on Rucka's Batwoman: Elegy.

"[Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, is] off to a great start with the literary-minded mayhem of Batwoman: Elegy, which collects issues No. 854 to 860 of Detective Comics and features a foreword from political geek Rachel Maddow.

Smartly written by Greg Rucka with sublime art from J.H. Williams, who is also writing and drawing Batwoman’s ongoing series starting in July, the new hardcover is a promising, powerful and often psychedelic phenomenon in a sexualized superhero landscape dominated by men in tights." - Wired magazine
