Hob Broun reissued at last!

After reading 3:AM editor David Winters’ essay on the brilliant (and neglected) American author Hob Broun at Writers No One Reads, the editors at Open Road Media have decided to reissue Broun’s books OdditoriumInner Tube, and Cardinal Numbers.

From Open Road’s website:

“Hob Broun was the son of Heywood Hale Broun and the grandson of Heywood Broun, the newspaper columnist. After publishing his first novel, Odditorium, Broun underwent a spinal surgery that saved his life but left him permanently paralyzed from the neck down. By blowing through a tube connected to a specially outfitted keyboard, Broun was able to complete his second novel, Inner Tube, and write the short stories of Cardinal Numbers. He was at work on a third novel when he died at age thirty-seven in 1987.”
