Here's some related links/videos for Jesse Bullington's The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart

Despite being released on Amazon a couple of weeks ago, today marks the official release of Jesse Bullington's debut novel, The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart, which is currently a strong favorite to be my favorite 2009 debut novel, as well as being one of the ten books selected for Amazon's 2009 Best Science Fiction and Fantasy. 

But let's say you're not convinced.  You want to know a bit more about it.  Well, I received some links from Orbit's Director of Publicity, Alex Lincicki, that might help persuade those not swayed by the strong, positive word-of-mouth to date.

First off, here's a brief trailer for the book:



Next is a link to the first chapter of the book, which ought to give readers a better idea if this novel is right for them.

Finally, here is a post that Bullington wrote for Powell's Books that might be of interest to those who want to know more about the author behind the Grossbarts. 

Hopefully, these links, along with my encouragement for all to buy the book lest they embrace their Inner Grossbart, will be of some use to readers here looking for something a bit different (and darker) for the upcoming holiday season.  I rarely post articles like this, so take this as my way of reinforcing just how much I loved this book.  So go forth and read, okay?

I have to admit that until last week this title skipped my radar and I don't know why. But I get more information about it and it picked my interest more and more, so I added it on my next shopping list :)
