An email from Joseph Bottum, formerly of the Weekly Standard and First Things, now a full-time resident of his native South Dakota:
Last year, you were kind enough to mention my Kindle Single for Christmas on the NRO blog. The writing of such things seems to have become a tradition for me: This year’s Christmas e-book on Amazon is a story called “Wise Guy“—a comic crime caper about a thief compelled by the local crime boss to commit 12 crimes before Christmas. On sale for the early holiday season at only 99 cents on Amazon.
It will be the best 99 cents you spend all day!
The one and only.
