Book Rec from Eric

Posted on in Book, Hoopla.

Soul Music by Terry Pratchett

Eric says: “Fantasy author Terry Pratchett’s gift for satirical social commentary is turned up to “11” in this tale of youth, rebellion, Death, family, and Music with Rocks In. Death takes a well-deserved holiday, leaving his granddaughter Susan in charge during his absence, a decision with fateful consequences. Meanwhile, a young bard named Imp Y Celyn (translation: “bud of holly”; call him Buddy) has a near-Death experience resulting in Buddy channelling living music never before heard in the Discworld. Buddy’s music takes the Discworld by storm inspiring the creation of a host of other bands and a corrupt industry bent on exploiting the dreams of these hopeful musicians. Sound familiar?

This is one of the “gateway books” I give to people to introduce them to the Discworld series and the magical works of Terry Pratchett.”

Black Gun, Silver Star by Art T. Burton

The Life and Legend of Frontier Marshal Bass Reeves

Earl says: “If you’re looking for a real Old West hero look no farther than Bass Reeves. Everyone has heard of Wyatt Earp, Bill Hickok, and Bat Masterson. Bass Reeves was a United States Marshall for over thirty years. Listen to this audiobook and learn about why many who study the Old West consider Reeves to be one of the best lawmen of his time.”
