Montevallo Authors? We've Got 'Em
If you're following our newest Browsing Books, you've probably noticed a couple of familiar names. The library now has copies of the latest works of two authors with ties to the Montevallo community.
We've got a copy of Gregory Reece's latest work, Weird Science and Bizarre Beliefs: Mysterious Creatures, Lost Worlds and Amazing Inventions. Dr. Reece's book promises to be "both a penetrating analysis of the hidden underbelly of science, pseudo-science and religion and an unforgettable journey into the innermost depths of the fantastic and the peculiar."
We also now have copies of two books written by our own Alan May. Alan's latest publication, Dead Letters, as well as his previous effort, Notes Toward an Apocryphal Text, will be on the shelves very soon. The author Inman Majors has described Alan's poems as "taut, intense, weird, and occasionally perverse. They are also unbearably kind, consistently funny."
There are several ways to keep up with our newest browsing books. You can subscribe to the RSS feed on the sidebar of this blog. The feed enables you to follow our collections with any portal you care to use. (I'm partial to iGoogle.) You can also find our browsing books in the ForUM portal. You'll see them there on the MyForUM tab. Finally, we have a New Browsing Books page on our web site. That page lists the last 50 books we've added to this popular collection.
