Book Nook: The Poacher's Son and Trespasser, by Paul Doiron

Paul Doiron has published the first two books in a murder mystery series that features the Maine game warden Mike Bowditch. The first book, "The Poacher's Son" (Minotaur Books) recently came out in paperback. The second novel, "Trespasser" (Minotaur Books) was released in hardcover last week.

Live on Kaleidoscope: We Were Animals

We Were Animals performing live at South Park Tavern

When Ed. Vs. Radio disbanded, Jason Gilmore and Nigel Verboon decided that they wanted to continue playing together, but they wanted to do something different from the pop-punk style they had been playing together for years.  This experimentation led to the creation of We Were Animals and the addition of I Died Trying's Mark on drums.  The band has released a two song demo with plans for a full album release in July.
