From H. John Rogers

Dear Editor:

One of our local organizations – maybe it was the Chamber of Commerce – used to have as its slogan “Buy Locally.” I think that this is a most salutary concept. I just finished Matt Null’s Allegheny Front, a collection of nine short stories which could do for Wetzel County what Thomas Wolfe did for Asheville, N.C. If the reader listens to the voices, that is.

Null is pitch perfect with our peculiar idiom.

And buy it at THE BOOK STORE too, not at Amazon. Heather does a better job.

Pax tecum,

H. John Rogers
