Did you read Sebastian Junger's review of Karl Marlantes' new Vietnam novel, Matterhorn, in last weekend's New York Times?
If you missed his rave, click here to read it. I'll wait for you to come back.
Sounds like an amazing book, right? Thanks to Karl, we now have to cases of his book to send to troops in Afghanistan.
We've started collecting books for spring so if you're an author or publisher, please get in touch with Operation Warrior Library and let us know if you'd like to be included.
If you'd like to support the authors who are donating their books, then, y'know, buy their books in the OWL bookstore. Any proceeds from sales there go to help us ship books over.

Our great friend Yvette at EXTRA told DINERS, DRIVE-INS AND DIVES host Guy Fieri about Operation Warrior Library. Not only is he sending us copies of his latest DVD to send to the troops, but he recorded a great message for them, as well.
You can support OWL contributors like Guy by purchasing copies of their books, CDs and DVDs in the OWL Store.
And thanks, Yvette!

Jon has a new novel out, SOUL RUNNER, and it sounds like a great thriller:
The year is 1988. As a former Hasidic Jew raised in the Bronx, Dr. Bram Aronsfeld is no stranger to trouble.
Now the secret organization known as ARK is sending him into Communist-controlled Romania to rescue the beautiful Ileana Tarus, a Christian Gypsy woman who possesses information vital to ARK's intelligence operations. Spearheading the subjugation of her people is the evil Drago Profis, a despot backed by the current regime.
When Bram realizes it's not just Ileana but her whole village that need rescuing, the two will embark on a perilous adventure from which only their foolhardy courage and Almighty God can save them all!
