New Review of THE LOST EPISODES OF REVIE BRYSON

Furuness coverHTML Giant reviews Bryan Furuness’ debut novel, writing “I was first introduced to Furuness – and to Revie Bryson – in a story called “Ballgrabber” that appeared in Hobart 9.  Revie surveyed the world of kids in such an irreverent, fresh, hilarious way that I filed Furuness’s name away and vowed to read his first novel whenever it came out. I read Lost Episodes in three days, and that same irreverent freshness was there to remind me why I’d been anxiously awaiting its release.” Read the entire review here, and grab your copy of this fantastic book here.
