The Rib King

Finely written and worth a second read, this novel would be a fantastic choice for book discussion groups. With complete faithfulness to the text, it could also make an excellent movie.

MBS: The Rise to Power of Mohammad bin Salman

An important and keen assessment of the Saudi Crown Prince that should be on every bookshelf.

The Talented Ribkins

With a nod to W.E.B. Dubois's essay "The Talented Tenth," this debut novel revolves around the subtle theme of adults passing on knowledge to younger generations. Hubbard's voice mixes wry humor and superhero pop culture while addressing issues that continue to challenge our country's African American community. [Hubbard is a 2016 winner of the Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers' Award.—Ed.]

The Invaders Plan

Enjoyable and thought provoking, this audiobook will appeal to fans of sf, espionage, adventure, and humorous satire.

The Christmas Cradle

Thoroughly steeped in the Old Order Amish ways, this sweet and tender story teems with forgiveness, growth, and promise, and with babies on the way, it's a perfect story for the Christmas season and fans of Amish fiction. Hubbard (Harvest of Blessings) lives in St. Louis.

Arctic Wings

Arctic Wings is recommended for larger libraries; The Green God is not recommended for purchase.

Mister Tidwell, Gunner

The stories are fun, if mostly unsurprising. Recommended for lovers of sea stories and adventure tales.

The Slickers

This is an uneven entry in a usually solid series. The production values are still high, but some missteps are taken. Recommended for lovers of old radio and hard-boiled detectives.

An Amish Christmas Quilt

Sweet, romantic, and heartfelt, this trio of engaging novellas link the holidays with the current Amish craze and will have appeal far beyond the expected inspirational fan base. Hubbard, Long, and Beckstrand live in St. Paul; Hummelstown, PA; and Centerville, UT, respectively.
