  1. On a personal note, I loved this book! I’m no BHodges, able to wax brilliant and poetic in book reviews, but if I had to try my hand at saying something about it, I’d call it 100 Years of Solitude’s magical realism meets Steinbeck’s unforgettably colorful cast of local-town characters meets X-Files’ relentless quest for the truth behind mysterious otherworldly events. (And yes, I think others have already cited many of those comparisons–but I give my stamp of approval.) Go read it.

  2. Congratulations, Steven. Well deserved award. (Now I really am heading to bed.)

  3. Yay!

  4. Congrats! The description intrigues me; as a fan of Jasper Fforde it sounds like the sort of quirky, surreal thing I’d enjoy. I’ve just put it on my birthday list.

  5. Congratulations Steve.

  6. Mark Brown says:

    Kai, quirky and surreal doesn’t even begin to describe it, but I promise you’ll enjoy it.

    Well done, Steven Peck.

  7. I bookmarked it in Amazon. I will check it out shortly. Congratulations!

  8. Antonio Parr says:

    I just ordered this on Amazon, and looking forward to the read. Thanks to BCC for highlighting things that are of “good report.”

  9. It’s truly a wonderful read!


  11. Congrats, Steve.

  12. Congrats to Steve; a well-deserved honor. Whoever hasn’t read it yet is running out of excuses.

    Also, I’m happy to see that Pace’s “American Trinity” won the best short story award from AML. It was perhaps the best short story I’ve read in a long, long time.

  13. Excellent, Steve. Can’t wait to see what you give us next.

  14. Loved the book. Loved Moab. Love Steve.
