MY CURRENT READING:
I’m working on that stack of books, continuing to read stories from The Black Lizard Big Book of Black Mask Stories, which I’m enjoying. My effort to read a short story a day is good so far, I’m also reading stories from Skirmish: The Great Short Fiction of Clifford D. Simak, and from another SF anthology, plus I read one Father Brown story.
I read and enjoyed and The Uncomplaining Corpses by Brett Halliday, the fourth Mike Shayne novel, the first in which Shayne is married. The plot in it was a little weak, but the characters were well done. Due to my lack of satisfaction with Out of the Blackout by Robert Barnard, I’m reading The Case of the Missing Brontë. I’m also about halfway through Simple Dreams, the musical memoir by Linda Ronstadt. Very interesting and enjoyable. Lastly, I have barely peeked at the new film Dear Mr. Watterson, about Bill Watterson, the creator of Calvin and Hobbes, which was released November 15th.
