Reading – Richard
I’m plugging away. My intention to read mostly short stories during November got off to a late start due to several library books drifting into the house, but I finished those up last week, as shown in last week’s post.
Before I launched into the several short story collections, however, I thought it was time to read the 299 page special edition of Blood ‘N’ Thunder that came last Summer and has been sitting here since. In addition to the usual editorial, convention reports and articles, this huge issue had a lot more fiction than usual, which accounts for the size. I enjoyed it, though not all of the articles were of deep interest to me, as usual. The fiction reprints were nice. Now the issue is filed away with the other ones and out of the way.
On to the short stories. I’ll not say much other than listing my progress, as I have reviews forthcoming. I finished the short story collection The Casebook of Newbury & Hobbs by George Mann. Also finished was Tales from High Hallack – the Collected Short Stories of Andre Norton, Volume 1 by Andre Norton.
What’s up next? Short stories, but also another library book has come, The Wind Is Not A River by Brian Payton, a WWII novel.
Reading – Barbara
Barbara finished the latest Charlie Parker mystery by favorite author John Connolly, The Wolf in Winter. She always likes the Parker mysteries. She also finished another 86th Precinct novel, Ten Plus One by Ed McBain. Now she’s reading Conspiracies by F. Paul Wilson, the third Repairman Jack novel. A lot of what we’re reading these days is coming from the library.
