The Cherry & the Pit

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

The Cherry:

Christine Sismondo’s America Walks Into a Bar, a biography of America’s drinking establishments and how they influenced the country’s history, from the tavern in the Salem Witch Trials to speakeasies during Prohibition and beyond.

The Pit:

Hugo and Nebula award-winning author Greg Bear’s Halo trilogy, set in the time of the Forerunners, the creators and builders of the Halos, based on the hit video games.
