What They Say

My Magic Year

My Magic Year not only chronicles Mississippi State’s amazing 2014 season, but it also gives us an insight into the mindset of Mississippi State fans—of a certain age. Those of us who were around in the lean and dark years, can readily identify with the author’s fear and frustrations where MSU football is concerned, and we can all be glad that Dan Mullen is rapidly relegating all of that to the history books.

— Roy Ruby, Mississippi State, 1961

will d…a life in science

Dr. Carpenter was central to the international negotiations that produced the Chemical Weapons Convention. I was convinced that the CWC negotiations could never be completed without the direct involvement, advice and support of the chemical industry, but there was no pre-existing international forum that would have permitted that engagement. It was the genius of Will Carpenter to have seen that need and to have devised a national, then an international, solution. Without him we would not have an effective treaty banning chemical weapons today.

Cow College

Hunting, fishing, football, coeds, beer, bourbon, burgers, and bouree’—four years in the trenches of higher education. What’s not to like?

— Chip Burson, Burson on Books

Delta Days

I recalled the hot days, nights cooled off by the attic fan, the smell of gardenias and pesticides, and many other memories that are brought back by Tommy Lawrence in this book. Tommy is a gifted writer with a good memory—a wicked combination.

Jake’s Revenge

Jake’s Revenge was an entertaining page-turner.  I found myself actively reading through it one night and looked up to see that it was 4am already!  Having such a tough, female lead was a touch unexpected, yet extremely enjoyable!  I think I’m in love with her… maybe it’s because she can kick my tail!

Jakes Revenge was a real page turner. My husband read it after I finished, and also enjoyed it.  We don’t always read the same books, but we both found it enjoyable. My son-in-law was next. Thanks for your wonderful books! You now have three fans in my family!!! Sincerely, Pat
