FF: What Could Be

A little more time to read this past week, although still not quite enough!  But then, is there ever?

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:

Welcome to Golden by Rory McClannahan.  I sat next to Rory at the Albuquerque Museum Author Festival and heard him talk about this book.  Virtual reality meets retirement community meets murder mystery.  Good story marred by a need for editing, especially for tenses.

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater.  Audiobook.  Held up very well to a second reading.  Very much enjoyed.

In Progress:

The Long Earth by Stephen Baxter and Terry Pratchett.  Audiobook.  Definitely more idea-driven than character-driven, but the ideas are interesting, especially the underplayed element of how life on Earth might have evolved without humans as a modifying factor.

Parsifal’s Page by Gerald Morris.  Continuation of his “Squire’s Tale” sequence, interesting in that for the first time the younger character has a great deal to learn, especially about the difference between image and reality.


Dipping into further issues of The Wicked and the Divine graphic novel.

    Have read the history of Romeo yet Jane ( A Wolf Called Romeo) He was one of the luckiest wolves of Juneau Alaska. Romeo was given more than most wolves.
