Published: ECW Press - April 14th, 2020

The next in a recent deluge of biographies of the legendary "8 foot tall" giant of the world of pro wrestling and entertainment. Hebert seeks to separate truth from fiction in this all-encompassing biography, but the minutiae of facts and dates often bog down the narrative. The writing won't win any awards, but fans of Andre may want to add this to their collection. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Lucy Knisley has already established herself as one of the premier graphic novelists of this generation with her many graphic memoirs. Stepping Stones is her first in a series of mid-child fiction, but is still deeply rooted in Knisley's real life experiences. Illustrations are clear and colorful, and each character is well rounded. A quick read, but one that will be enjoyed by a large age group, including her many adult fans. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

The author of the excellent Ghostland turns his critical eye towards the cryptids and legends of American history. Dickey presents the myths and facts with a clear, nonjudgmental tone, and digs deep into the many sources of inspiration that can often meld together to form a tall tale. Another hit from this author. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

A peek behind the curtain of the famed Murakami machine. Once the legendary Japanese author puts pen to table, the journey of his novels is far from over. "Who We're Reading..." dives into the history of the translation and publication of Murakami's work over the past five decades. A must have for the legion of fans of the author. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
