New book out

Our latest title, After the Jump, has emerged from the womb, covered over in a goopy coating of literary afterbirth. If you like books… this is definitely a book.* It has a cover and words and everything. Perhaps you should tell your friends, (if you have any). (Loser.)

Baby Got Books review of Tales of the Peacetime Army

This is old news, but I thought I’d point it out for your reading pleasure.  It’s a review of John Sheppard’s Tales of the Peacetime Army, which was the first book that Paragraph Line Books published.

I always loved this book, especially the layout, which looks like those Army publications on how to set up a grenade launcher or avoid getting herpes overseas that you’d see in a box in the local Army/Navy surplus store.  And it’s no coincidence – in a previous life, John used to illustrate those things when he was in the army.

If you haven’t checked this out, it’s worth a look.  And John wrote another book that’s similar, but much more multi-faceted called In Between Days, which is his best yet. He published it himself on lulu, and it went somewhat unnoticed, but it was probably the best book I read in 2009, so check it out.
