OWEN THOMAS FICTION REVIEW: "The Book of Moon" by George Crowder


To call “ The Book of Moon” a ‘coming-of-age’ story is to be both accurate and woefully incomplete. George Crowder’s deftly-written chronicle of the Landing family, narrated from the teenage-perspective of its youngest member, Moon (yes, that’s Moon Landing), has all of the hallmarks that one expects to find in a good coming-of-age tale: a young man coming to an ever-broader and more richly meaningful understanding of himself, his family and the world as life throws him one curveball after another. In Crowder’s capable hands, we follow young Moon from one revelatory trial and tribulation to the next, watching him wrestle with his own self-concept within the greater context of his parents’ di...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to ANNE RICE from Owen Thomas Fiction


Happy Birthday to Anne Rice, born October 4, 1941. Born Howard Allen Frances O'Brien, Anne Rice has made her name writing gothic fiction, Christian literature and erotica. If you have a bookshelf at home dedicated to Anne Rice then you need to place it prominently for visitors to peruse so they can leave your house having absolutely no idea what to think of you. Rice’s most famous work is, of course, “Interview with a Vampire,” which introduced the world to Lestat, a vampire whose fame is second only to Dracula himself. Now at 77, Rice can claim this bit of wisdom for herself: nothing keeps you feeling young like inventing an insatiable 200+ year-old character to pay off your mortgage and ke...

DICTIONARY OF OBSCURE SORROWS by John Koening (presented by Owen Thomas Fiction)


THE DICTIONARY OF OBSCURE SORROWS John Koening has been working for nearly a decade to put together a book of invented words to describe human emotions desperate for a name.
