The Cherry & the Pit

A continuing series that highlights books recently acquired by publishing houses for future release. Each post features a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

The Cherry:

Jon Kukla’s The First American, a revisionist history of the American Revolution recovering its “missing southern half” in the life and legacy of Patrick Henry, based on extensive new research.

The Pit:

Anna J. Evans’s Dead on the Delta, the first in a series set in post-apocalyptic Louisiana which is overrun by poisonous, insect-like fairies with a taste for human flesh and blood, and the field agent who is immune to their venom.
