We understand that at times it could be a challenge narrowing down your next listen, so we had our acquirers narrow down a few of their top picks for you.

Devil’s Creek

About fifteen miles west of Stauford, Kentucky, lies Devil’s Creek. According to local legend, there used to be a church out there, home to the Lord’s Church of Holy Voices—a death cult where Jacob Masters preached the gospel of a nameless god. And like most legends, there’s truth buried among the roots and bones. Contains mature themes.

Note: Spooky season isn’t over yet! Horrifying childhood memories continue to haunt Jack as he flourishes in his art career, but everything comes to the surface when he goes back to Devil’s Creek, Kentucky, to settle his late grandmother’s estate. Home to the burned down Lord’s Church of Holy Voices, Jack is confronted by secrets that won’t stay hidden any longer. – Lindsey Wood

The Real Valkyrie

In the tradition of Stacy Schiff’s Cleopatra, Nancy Marie Brown lays to rest the hoary myth that Viking society was ruled by men and celebrates the dramatic lives of female Viking warriors.

Note: Nancy Marie Brown’s study proves that contrary to popular belief, women held a much greater role in Viking warrior culture than previously imagined. As she expertly reveals the fantasies we hold about history, gender, and culture, she brings the past into the sharp focus of the present – touching on some of the most pressing issues of our time. -Aaron Piccirillo

The Strategy of Denial: American Defense in an Age of Great Power Conflict

The most informed and in-depth reappraisal of America’s defense strategy in decades, this book outlines a rigorous but practical approach, showing how the United States can prepare to win a war with China that we cannot afford to lose—precisely in order to deter that war from happening.

Note: “One of the leading defense strategists presents the most thorough and thought-provoking looks at what the U.S. needs to do to prepare for an unlikely but possible conflict with China.  Colby explains in detail how its military strategy must change, and how it must prioritize these goals over its lesser interests.  A remarkable look into what a conflict such as this would entail and how we go about in preventing future escalations.” – Scott Smith
