Free e-book excerpts from Sue Grafton, Amy Tan

NEW YORK (AP) - Upcoming novels by Sue Grafton, Elizabeth Gilbert and Wally Lamb are among 40 fall and winter releases excerpted in a free e-book.

"Buzz Books 2013: Fall/Winter" also previews fiction from Amy Tan and actor James Franco and such nonfiction as a memoir about Johnny Carson by confidant Henry Bushkin and a book about the Beatles' rise by veteran reporter Larry Kane, who frequently interviewed the band in the 1960s.

"Buzz Books 2013" was released Monday by Publishers Lunch, an online industry newsletter. The book can be downloaded on Amazon.com's Kindle, Barnes & Noble's Nook and other digital devices.

"Buzz Books" includes four sections: fiction, debut fiction, nonfiction and young adult fiction.
