The final book in the amazing Last Policeman trilogy is out soon, and to celebrate, author Ben H. Winters is going on a virtual blog tour, visiting blogs and sharing more about the series. Although we’re all dying to find out if the world will end in the final book in the Last Policeman Trilogy.
A review of World of Trouble will be posted soon and on Friday, we are very excited to be hosting a guest post by Ben H. Winters, detailing some of the geekiness main character Hank Palace displays throughout the books.
We were lucky enough to meet Ben H. Winters at Norwescon this year, when Countdown City won the Philip K. Dick Award for Distinguished Science Fiction.
