And the February Book Club Pick is...Unshapely Things by Mark Del Franco

Back Cover Copy:

In the alleys of the decrepit Boston neighborhood known as the Weird, fairy prostitutes are turning up dead. The crime scenes show signs of residual magic, but the Guild, which polices the fey, has more "important" crimes to investigate and dumps the case on human law enforcement.

Boston police call in Connor Grey, a druid and former hotshot Guild investigator-whose magical abilities were crippled after a run-in with a radical environmentalist elf. As Connor battles red tape and his own shortcomings, he realizes that the murders are not random, but part of an ancient magical ritual. And if Connor can't figure out the killer's M.O., the culmination of the spell might just bring about a worldwide cataclysm.

So there you have it folks, run out and pick up UNSHAPELY THINGS and while you're at it grab his new one, UNQUIET DREAMS. Trust me on this--I'm a fan--you're going to kick yourself when you turn the last page and have to drag your tired ass back out to the bookstore.

We'll be talking to Mark to see what kind of roll he can play in our shindig.

Thanks to all the readers for making the League's first book club so awesome. Your questions were definitely better than mine, and your responses were thoughtful and eloquent and I'm not just blowing smoke up your asses. I sorta mean it.

You wouldn't like me to get actually mushy would you?
