Yet another reason to support your local independent bookstore

I got a heads-up yesterday from the folks at Queen Anne Books that the July Seattle magazine has a rave review of Bad Monkeys (“The twisting and turning action-adventure novel contains snappy movielike dialogue and enough mind-bending action scenes to make the writers of The Matrix jealous…” GRADE: A-). The booksellers found out about it when a tourist from California came in looking for a copy of the novel for her plane ride home. Of course this would be an even better story if they’d had one to sell her, but the review includes a nice shot of the cover, so she should remember it when it finally turns up in stores.
