I continue to gather the Dunction books, plus a mystery I bought because of a Friday Forgotten Books review.
The Cornish Coast Murder by John Bude [The British Library 2014 paperback, purchased new] – mystery, originally published in 1935. I ordered this after reading a review of it on Pretty Sinister Books. Probably dated, but with old mysteries that’s not always a sin, and when reading old things I never focus on what isn’t there, only on what is.
Duncton Quest by William Horwood [Century Hutchinson 1988 hardcover, purchased used] – fantasy-adventure-animal community. I’m just about done finding and buying the two trilogies of Duncton books by Horwood. This novel and Duncton Found (see below) constitute, with the first one, Duncton Wood the initial trilogy.
Duncton Found by William Horwood. [Century Hutchinson 1989 hardcover, purchased used] – fantasy. This is the thrid novel in the first Duncton trilogy. By the way, each of these novels is doorstop thick, so it will take me a while to read them.
I finished the second book in Jeffrey Sigel’s Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis series, Assassins of Athens. It was very good. Now about halfway through John Scalzi’s The Human Division which is also very good. I didn’t read it on screen in the installments, so I’m missing the installment-specific artwork by John Harris, but the story is all there and Scalzi is really good at writing it. He may get tired of writing Old Man’s War universe books, but I surely do enjoy reading them.
Barbara read two novels by William Kent Krueger, Trickster’s Point and Tamarack County so she’s current on his O’Conner books until the new once comes out in August. Then she read Murder in Mykonos by Jeffrey Siger and has started on the second book in the series, Assassins of Athens, which I just finished.
What new did you get, what have you been reading?
