David Wagner, Death in the Dolomites
Bookworks, Saturday, September 20 at 3pm
Rick Montoya is looking forward to a break from his translation business in Rome a week of skiing in the Italian Alps with old college buddy Flavio. But Rick s success helping the Italian police with a murder in Tuscany sends the Campiglio cops his way. An American banker working in Milano is missing. The man s sister, an attractive and spoiled divorcee, has no idea where he could be, nor do the locals who saw him on his way to the slopes. With the discovery of a body, Rick and Inspector Albani widen their list of suspects. Picturesque resort Campiglio harbors old rivalries, citizens on the make, and a cut-throat political campaign. Why would these local issues, any of them, connect to the missing banker? The investigation doesn't keep Rick and Flavio from enjoying perfect ski conditions in the Dolomites and glorious after-ski wines and bowls of fresh pasta. As for women Rick has to wonder if the banker s sister is just hitting him up for information. The action heats up, testing laid-back Rick whose uncle, a Roman cop, keeps urging him to make the police his career. As in Cold Tuscan Stone, Death in the Dolomites immerses us in the sights, smells and tastes of Italy, this time in a picture-perfect Alpine town with a surprising negative side."

David P. Wagner is the author of Cold Tuscan Stone, the first Rick Montoya Italian Mystery. While serving in the diplomatic service he spent nine years in Italy where he learned to love things Italian, many of which appear in his writing. He and his wife live in New Mexico.

In this refreshingly blunt how-to guide, Sincero, serves up 27 bite-sized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, life-changing insights, easy exercises and the occasional swear word.

And should you be one of those people who dreads getting busted with a self-help book in your hands, fear not. Sincero, a former skeptic herself, delivers the goods minus the New-Age cheese, giving even the snarkiest of poo-pooers exactly what they need to get out of their ruts and start kicking some ass.

By the end of You Are a Badass, you will understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can't change, how to change what you don't love, and how to start living the kind of life you used to be jealous of.

Jen Sincero is a bestselling author and success coach who has helped countless people transform their personal and professional lives via her private sessions, public appearances, newsletters, products and books. She's spoken on stages all over the world and has coached full-on super heroes, helping her clients build their dream businesses, become NY Times Bestselling authors, navigate million dollar business deals, find their soul mates and forgive their bitchy mothers who they now realize were doing the best they could.

Michael Maddox, Porter and Ike Stockton: Colorado and New Mexico Border Outlaws
Bookworks, Thursday, September 25 at 7pm
Renowned historian of the American West, Frederick Nolan, author of The West of Billy the Kid and The Lincoln County War: A Documentary History, noted that with the publication of this new book Maddox has "written a whole new chapter in outlaw history." -- During the first week of May 1881 the Santa Fe New Mexican carried two reward notices from Governor Lew Wallace. One was for $500 for William Bonney, "alias The Kid" and directly below that was another reward notice for $2250 for Ike Stockton and his gang. Like Billy the Kid, Ike had a price of $500 on his head. Compared to the Kid, few have ever heard of Ike Stockton. Fewer still have heard of his older brother, Porter. Yet it was Porter Stockton who was by far the most dangerous and deadly of the brothers. In March 1881 the Las Vegas (New Mexico) Optic described Porter Stockton as "one of the most hardened murderers and desperadoes that ever darkened the pages of history and annals of crime." Countless hours of research over a period of six years have resulted in this thorough and entertaining account of the turmoil caused by the Stockton brothers. From cattle kings to cowboys, from cow towns to hell on wheels railroad camps and from shootouts to lynchings, their story encompasses all of the legends of the mythic American West. Take hold of this book like you would the reins of a skittish horse, find the sweet spot in the saddle, or better yet your easy chair, and settle in for a hell of a ride.

Mike Maddox is a graduate of Colorado State University and is retired from the New Mexico State Parks.

Laura Pritchett, Stars Go Blue
Bookworks, Saturday, September 27 at 3pm
Laura Pritchett is an award-winning author who has quickly become one of the west's defining literary voices. We first met hardscrabble ranchers Renny and Ben Cross in Laura's debut collection, and now in Stars Go Blue, they are estranged, elderly spouses living on opposite ends of their sprawling ranch, faced with the particular decline of a fading farm and Ben's struggle with Alzheimer's disease. He is just on the cusp of dementia, able to recognize he is sick but unable to do anything about it -the notes he leaves in his pockets and around the house to remind him of himself, his family, and his responsibilities are no longer as helpful as they used to be. Watching his estranged wife forced into care-taking and brought to her breaking point, Ben decides to leave his life with whatever dignity and grace remains. As Ben makes his decision, a new horrible truth comes to light: Ray, the abusive husband of their late daughter is being released from prison early. This opens old wounds in Ben, his wife, his surviving daughter, and four grandchildren. Branded with a need for justice, Ben must act before his mind leaves him, and sets off during a brutal snowstorm to confront the man who murdered his daughter. Renny, realizing he is missing, sets off to either stop or witness her husband's act of vengeance. Stars Go Blue is a triumphant novel of the American family, buffered by the workings of a ranch and the music offered by the landscape and animal life upon it.

Laura Pritchett is the author of Hell's Bottom, Colorado, which received the Milkweed National Fiction Prize and a PEN USA Award for fiction. For Sky Bridge, she received the WILLA Fiction Award and was a Finalist for the Colorado Book Award. Her work has appeared in numerous magazines including The Sun, Orion, High Country News, Salon, Desert Journal and others. Pritchett lives with her family in the foothills of northern Colorado.

Debra Bloomfield, Wilderness
Bookworks, Sunday, September 28 at 3pm
Debra Bloomfield engaged for five years on a photographic project in the wilderness. After photographing the desert in Four Corners and the ocean in Still, she has moved on in this new book to the forest.

Her photographs do not describe a particular place. She does not catalog the elements that add up to wilderness. She does not show each detail she observed or convey all the information she learned while she was there. Instead, her photographs and soundscapes bring us to the experience of wilderness.

A CD is an integral part of this book, allowing the reader to share the photographer's journey of hearing the call of birds overhead, the crunch of snow underfoot, and the hum of a ferry's engine.

In Wilderness, two former UNM authors have joined in a collaboration that began over a cup of coffee and their mutual passion for wilderness.

Thomas Fox Averill, A Carol Dickens Christmas
Bookworks, Thursday, October 2 at 7pm
It's Christmas, and Carol Dickens's life is in major transition. Her son Finn, a talented trumpet player, is about to leave for college. Her ex-husband, a real-estate wheeler-dealer, wants to sell their properties in Kansas and move to Arizona. Her wheelchair-bound friend, Laurence, has fallen in love with her. To top it all off, Scraps, the family dog, is dying. As her world spins out of control, Carol seeks refuge in her research on the use of the semicolon--and in her ritual of cooking the perfect series of Victorian holiday meals inspired by A Christmas Carol.

Thomas Fox Averill is writer-in-residence and a professor of English at Washburn University of Topeka. He is the author of the novels Secrets of the Tsil Cafe and The Slow Air of Ewan MacPherson.

Some people inherit the strangest things.

When Corky inherits her Uncle Moony’s diary, she finds he had a strange and frightening obsession about his brother... a brother with his own disturbing practices.
