The Mirtle book club
Fall is sort of like Oscar season for hockey books: All the great ones will be coming out in the next month or two, just in time for the Christmas buy up.
This year, there are some really intriguing options from a few Mirtle-blog favourites, so consider this an early heads up given these are all soon to be released:
- Future Greats and Heartbreaks: A Season Undercover in the Secret World of NHL Scouts
By Gare Joyce (Release date: Nov. 20, 2007)
- King of Russia: A Year in the Russian Super League

Joyce and Duhatschek are the must-reads for me.
