Beyond the Book

Print Review

Jack Kerley spent twenty years in advertising before writing The Hundredth Man, his first novel.  In talking about himself he says, 'I enjoy playing guitar, and will fish for anything, anytime, anywhere...I spend a goodly amount of time in Fairhope, Alabama, on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay, and a fine place for writing and fishing....All things considered, I’d prefer being buried in a bookstore than a cemetery, but suspect zoning codes prohibit that sort of thing, more's the pity'.

Coming Soon: A second Carson Ryder/Harry Nautilus novel, The Death Collectors,  will publish in hardcover  next week and has already received  promising pre-publication reviews.

To quote Jack Kerley, 'If you're gonna plunk down twenty-five or so bucks for a book, I’ll do my best to make it worth your while!
