Yes, folks, it's time I plugged my own books again. So I thought I'd let you know that Dead Soldiers is now available in trade paperback format. Not noir, not hardboiled. But here's what Booklist had to say: "Crider, known for his Sheriff Dan Rhodes series, unerringly re-creates the claustrophobic atmosphere of a small-town university, leavening his tart plot with humor and a simmering sense of the absurd. Unerringly enjoyable." You can't beat "unerringly enjoyable," can you? I don't think so.
