I want to take the opportunity for a shout-out to
and blatant promotion for friend Barth Anderson. Since appearing in the pages of Electric Spec, he’s released his second novel: THE MAGICIAN AND THE FOOL.
Reviews promise mystery and magic, compelling characters, and an intriguing non-linear plot, all circling around the history and legends of Tarot. I've personally loved everything I've ever read of Barth's, so I might be a tad biased, but the first chapter was so evocative I couldn't help but run out and buy me a copy. But gee, don't take my word for it. Read it for yourself.
