The October Indie Next List Notables flier, in PDF format, features jacket images, bibliographic information, and bookseller quotes for a great selection of titles to complement the month's Indie Next List selections. Bookseller quotes are also currently available in an electronic file of Notables shelf-talkers.
The October Indie Notables list is a great balance of quality fiction, nonfiction, and mystery titles. The fiction selections include acclaimed debut novel The Gone-Away World by Nick Harkaway (Knopf) and Two Marriages by Phillip Lopate (Other Press), while nonfiction includes two stellar collections -- State by State: A Panoramic Portrait of America, edited by Matt Weiland and Sean Wilsey (Ecco) and This I Believe II: More Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women, edited by Jay Allison and Dan Gediman (Holt). Mystery titles include Blood Alone, the latest in the popular Billy Boyle World War II Mystery Series by James R. Benn (Soho).
Notables titles are perfect choices to complement Next List selections in both window and in-store displays. And Notables shelf-talkers are ready-made (they simply need to be printed and cut) to draw attention to face-outs.
Booksellers with comments, questions, and suggestions for the Next List are encouraged to contact Dan Cullen, editor-in-chief of the Indie Next List, via e-mail.
