and his new collection,
The Skull of Pancho Villa and Other Stories
Come listen to this master storyteller and
all-around Good Guy.
Legend has it that Pancho Villa's grave was robbed and his head stolen in 1926. A gringo is credited with the theft, but Gus Corral's great-grandfather was there too. As often happens to Chicanos, his role was given short shrift. But the Corral family has taken care of the skull for as long as Gus can remember. It's a jolt when "Panchito" is stolen from his sister's house. It's the only connection to the old-timers of the family, so Gus knows he will have to get to the bottom of the disappearance, even if it means tangling with thieves and thugs.
A variety of characters -- writers, attorneys, Vietnam vets, cops, soldiers -- populate these stories in which situations frequently aren't what they seem. An old man knows more about the disappearance of a neighbor than he lets on. A barber is involved in something that brings a ski-mask wearing, gun-toting hoodlum into his shop. And a cop accused of using excessive force hasn't told his family the whole truth.
Manuel Ramos is an attorney in Denver and the author of four previous novels. Director of Advocacy for Colorado Legal Services, he also teaches in the Chicano Studies Department at Metropolitan State College, Denver. He’s also a darn good writer.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, or, at the very least, unsettled. But the books inside are delightful. We have lots of lovely books suitable for gift-giving. It’s nice to hold a book in your hands, and an e-reader certainly can’t simulate that feel, or the beauty of the cover and interior illustrations. We also have dozens and dozens of autographed modern first printings (most not expensive).

The Denver Book Mall closed August 31, 2009, but Ron and Nina were thrilled to be able to open a new book store, Broadway Book Mall, 200 S. Broadway, Denver, CO, southeast corner of Broadway and Cedar, just 3-1/2 blocks south of the Denver Book Mall location. We brought with us 9 of the booksellers from the old store, though we have now lost JoAnn due to health problems. Great books, great people, great service and great parking. REAL books for REAL people.
We've been open since August 4, 2009 and are thriving in our new location. Please help us spread the word by linking to our web site and by telling absolutely everyone you know!
