This week hasn’t been exactly peaceful, what with my kitchen ceiling being patched and the whole kitchen painted, but good stories have done a great deal to ease the strain.
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.
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. Audiobook.
The Squire, His Knight, and His Lady by Gerald Morris. Standalone sequel to The Squire’s Tale, which I read a few weeks ago. Who “His Lady” is an interesting question of pronoun reference.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater. Audiobook. Again, a book I read in print and am now enjoying in this alternate form.
The Savage Damsel and the Dwarf by Gerald Morris. I remember reading Malory’s original version of this and wondering if the manuscript had been incomplete. This is a great deal more comprehensible!
Still typing and reviewing my own recent additions to a manuscript. Still enjoying.
