This time it’s really all about the Christmas rush, so there’s not a great deal to report. I did get one book in, and although other things have arrived, they have been whisked away by my spouse. Hmmm…
NEW ARRIVALS – As I said, just the one this one. I read a short review of and thought it looked interesting.
When the Villain Comes Home edited by Gabrielle Harbowy and Ed Greenwood [Dragon Moon Press 2012 trade paper, new] – SF-F short story collection – 30 stories – a review convinced me to try this, how much I like it remains to be seen, but it’s an interesting concept: “Heroes can save the world, but villains can change it.” There are several authors here I really like, others unknown to me.
CURRENT READING – I’m reading John Scalzi’s Redshirts while continuing to work on the Black Mask short story collection and I’m halfway through Charles Sheffield’s Cold As Ice, and old favorite. Next up will be a mystery novel, but I don’t know which one yet.
The holidays are sucking up a lot of reading time, even this post is a little late getting up due to decorating. Today – Monday December 10th – is the monthly quilting group day and it’s my wife’s turn to host, so we had to make the house “ready” for that. She was up at 7:00 this morning vacuuming (again) the quilt studio area in deference to the people with cats allergies. That makes this a good day for me to hang out in my little library and read, after yet another trip to the Post Office to send off the last of the out-of-town packages. I may finish Redshirts today.
