  • Another prize, another longlist

    Tue, 31 Aug 2010 06:11

    The Guardian newspaper here in the UK has announced the longlist for the 2010 First Book Award.

    Ten grand is up for grabs and the books range from a Somali boy's journey through Africa, a novel about Churchill's black dog and life in a 20s Finnish asylum among others. Five novels, four non-fiction titles and a book of poetry. Unfortunately, as is the way with these things, you'll have to wait for two of the titles. Of course you can pre-order but check out the rest now.

But Ook and Gluk's idyllic life takes a turn for the terrible when an evil corporation from the future invades their quiet town...
