FF: TV Appearance! Convention Prep!

Here’s some breaking news. On Wednesday, August 24, at 8:00 a.m., Jessica Coyle and I will be appearing on KRQE This Morning on KASA-2.  We’ll be talking up Bubonicon, New Mexico’s absolutely wonderful Science Fiction convention.  No idea exactly when we’ll go on (we’re not the entire show), but it should be fun.  If you can get the channel, grab your coffee and join us.

Kel Wants Jane to Sit Down and Read!

For those of you just discovering this feature, 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 description or a few opinions tossed in.

Recently Completed:

Baby Island by Carol Ryrie Brink.  Came across this used and couldn’t resist trying again.  Possibly the oddest “castaway” book ever.

Cat Among the Pigeons by Agatha Christie.  Audiobook.  Although Dame Agatha is best-known for her murder mysteries, she liked writing thrillers, too.  This one is set at a prestigious girl’s school.

Wolf’s Blood by Jane Lindskold.  Wow!  That’s a really long book.  I will admit to enjoying it, though.

In Progress:

Andy Buckram’s Tin Men by Carol Ryrie Brink.  Who would ever have thought that the author made famous by her historical novel Caddie Woodlawn also wrote SF?  I’m reading part for fun, but also as preparation for being on a “robots” panel at Bubonicon.

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab.  Audiobook.  Interesting setting.

Also:

Wolf Hunting by Jane Lindskold.  Reading a series backwards has a weird appeal.  It’s a fascinating way to see just how characters grow.

    “Wolf’s Blood”: A long book, maybe, but worth every page. I’m currently reading “Boo,” a debut novel by Neil Smith, about a sort-of heaven afterlife just for teens. Very strange.

    I can tell decision making and friendship are the core of the whole series Jane. Through Wolf’s Eyes I’d say is about real loyalty because Blind Seer tells Firekeeper his pack wanted her to know where Firekeeper herself came from, Wolf’s Heart Wolf’s Head I’d say is about doing the right thing even when it feels hard because Derian’s willing to support Firekeeper with some real endurance, Dragon of Despair I’d say is about having courage because Blind Seer and Firekeeper are willing to cooperate and do their best to find the real solution, Wolf Captured I’d say is about self-satisfaction because mainly Firekeeper’s trying decide where she’d like to stay, Wolf Hunting book 5 I’d say is indeed about being faithful to yourself especially in the chapters you meet the meddler in. And I’d say Wolf’s Blood is about being careful enough to stay out of trouble.

    It’s an Enjoyable series
