FIRE SEASON by Philip Connors (by SheepscotCreative)
I read this last year and it’s now one of my favourites. This trailer for the book is so good! Shame it’s not longer!
"Sociable Hermits: A Story of Lookouts" by Matthew Geer (by Paul Andreano)
On a bit of a ‘everything fire related’ kick at the moment. This is so great, but I just wish it was longer! One of my top 5 dream jobs for sure.
A dying profession though unfortunately.
