Bubonicon was fun, but it cut into my reading time.
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.
Wolf Hunting by Jane Lindskold. Reading a series backwards has a weird appeal. It’s a fascinating way to see just how characters grow.
Monstress by Majorie Liu and Sana Takeda. Comic book. Issues 1-6. Gorgeous illustrations and a story that became stronger as it progressed.
Fuzzy by Tom Angleberger and Paul Dellinger. Middle grade fiction. A robot is sent to middle school for reasons that actually work in the context of the story. I’d expected good middle school (because Mr. Angleberger is very good at that). However, I found myself enjoying as SF as well.
Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Audiobook. Sometimes an audiobook is a great way to re-experience an old favorite because of the re-immersive element.
Wolf Captured by Jane Lindskold. The backwards series reading experience continues.
Had a glitch with our download of Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal, the audiobook, so I’m going to need to start this over when it’s available again.
