This week in books

The big story is Steve Whitton's review of two biographies of filmmakers: Woody Allen and Otto Preminger. Those who are film buffs will be eager to savor these.
Shawn Ryan reviews fantasy Fatal Revenant, which was great but has a big downside: it leaves the reader hanging big-time. And the next book won't be out for about two years. That's a rough one for any series fan.
Lindsay Maples reviews Interred with Their Bones, a thriller about Shakespeare. Yep. It was supposed to be pretty gripping, but our reviewer was not impressed. That's a disappointment. Always fun to have new, good page-turners.
Next week, some short stories and new novels.
