Well… I had to have a title. You decide it if applies!
Just a reminder… The Friday Fragments lists what I’ve read over the past week. Most of the time I don’t include details of either short fiction (unless part of a book-length collection) or magazine articles.
The Fragments are not meant to be a recommendation list. If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive recommendation list, you can look on my website under Neat Stuff.
Once again, this is not a book review column. It’s just a list with, maybe, a bit of descriptions or a few opinions tossed in.
The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie. Audiobook. I enjoyed. Again!
Winter Witch by Elaine Cunningham. (Co-written with Dave Gross.) Audiobook. Another Pathfinder universe novel. Quite good, with two very solid main characters. I would enjoy reading more of their adventures.
The Great Piratical Rumbustification & The Librarian and the Robbers by Margaret Mahy.
Tick Tock Tales: Twelve Stories to Read Around the Clock by Margaret Mahy. Alan Robson mentioned this author to me. In fact, we’ve been talking about her works and will be sharing that chat in a week or so.
Fighting the Flying Circus by Captain Eddie. V. Rickenbacker. A non-fiction autobiographical account of what is was like to be a fighter pilot in WWI. Sometimes, a hundred years ago can see like an alien land.
Seventh Grave and Nobody by Darynda Jones. Audiobook. Just started.
Holiday shopping MUST be coming, because my mail box suddenly includes at least one catalog a day. Looking through them is a fascinating exercise in anthropology. I wonder what an alien would make of us based on, say, Vermont Country Store’s catalog or Signals?
