SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION AND OTHER HYPE
MY LATEST MYTERY IS OUT AND MY EARLY TITLES ARE BACK IN PRINT!
SPIDER SEASON, the eighth novel in my Benjamin Justice mystery series, which has won an Edgar and three Lambda Literary Awards, has just been published by St. Martin's Minotaur. It can be read on its own or as part of this dark, character-driven series. If you'd like to read the first chapter of SPIDER SEASON, use the link on the home page of my author web site, www.johnmorganwilson.com.
In August, Bold Stroke Books reissued SIMPLE JUSTICE, my first mystery novel, which won the 1996 Edgar for best first novel and launched the Benjamin Justice mystery series. SIMPLE JUSTICE has been out of print for seven or eight years but has continued to sell through Internet used book sales, that nefarious practice that is killing the careers of so many authors by robbing us of sales, limiting our original printings, and making it difficult to get our books back into print. (If you are buying used books on the Internet, please stop. Every Internet used book sale hurts the author, who gets no credit for it, while it cuts into further printings or the need for a paperback edition.)
Bold Strokes has also reissued the next three Benjamin Justice mysteries in the series (REVISION OF JUSTICE, JUSTICE AT RISK, and THE LIMITS OF JUSTICE). If you can't find these early mysteries at your local bookstore, please ask the manager to order them through Bold Strokes Books (www.boldstrokesbooks.com).
