School Library Journal Review of Bump

Bump in the Night got a very nice review in the School Library Journal Review; here is an excerpt:

Look, I know you've got a lot of monster books out there to choose from. Not just blue ones either. But sometimes you want a monster story that can give you cool visuals and a fun plot without sacrificing style or message. This little number won't change the face of friendly monster fare as we know it, but when it comes to amusing both adults and kids alike it certainly has the edge. Fun. Cute. Hard to resist.

Mention in New York Post

Ed got some ink in the venerable New York Post as the co-author of a literary cocktail book:

"Hard drinking used to be seen as a badge of respect, whereas now it's seen as a crutch," says Edward Hemingway, the grandson of Ernest. "Alcoholism is understood as more of a disease now than it was back in my grandfather's day."
