On 6/7 David Wilson wrote: Andrew Klavan is crazy good. I mean, the author is very adept at writing stories where characters have mental problems. His 1993 novel The Animal Hour follows a narrator through chilling dangers as the reader gradually understands the depths of her madness. The story is quite shocking and violent, so I wouldn’t recommend it generally. ... Book review: Crazy Dangerous

On 7/19 David Wilson wrote: I’ve been a big fan of Jason’s Boyett for some time. His blog is an engaging blend of belief and doubt, serious insights and frivolous musings, reverence and irreverence.
