Third Friday Fragment

Hi!  A brief introduction to newcomers to this feature…  This Friday Fragment is a list of what I’ve read over the past week.  It is not meant to be a recommendation list.  If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive list, you can look on my website.

Watch're you reading, Cowboy?

What you reading, Cowboy?

This is not a book review column.  It’s just a list with, maybe, a few opinions tossed in.

Enjoy!

Recently Completed:

Got A Revolution: The Turbulent Flight of Jefferson Airplane by Jeff Tamarkin.  Very well-written.  An ambitious effort to look at the interactions of a wildly creative group of people over the course of several decades of interaction.

First half of Days of Blood And Starlight by Laini Taylor.  Audiobook.

In Progress:

Border Ambush by Melody Groves.

Light Thickens.  Ngaio Marsh.  Audiobook.

Within the Last Couple Months:

Scream for Jeeves: A Parody by P.H. Cannon.  P.G. Wodehouse meets H.P. Lovecraft.  The author put a lot of work into fitting his stories into the established Wodehouse storyline so, for example, we now know the source of the mysterious flu that derailed one of Bertie’s engagements.  Recommended only for those familiar with the works of both authors.

    Personal the new Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child. It’s a Jack Reacher novel…

    Re-reading The Adventures Of Una Persson And Catherine Cornelius In The Twentieth Century by Michael Moorcock. I don’t like Moorcock’s straightforward fantasies but I love his Jerry Cornelius novels. This one is a Jerry Cornelius offshoot, and it is, of course, brilliant.

    Just finished the new John Scalzi novel Lock In. Very, very good. It’s published by Tor and I bought it as an ebook. Despite Tor’s usual disclamer about DRM, it came with DRM. This happens far too often. I think this will be the last Tor novel that I buy.

    Eating For England by Nigel Slater is a very eccentric book about food. I love books about food. I love food…

    Oops — I messed up the italics. I hope the post still makes sense…

    I understood… You were not presenting the longest titles in the universe, just an interesting reading list!
