I received all sorts of cool books for Christmas, including one on cowboy star Audie Murphy, a history of Wonder Woman, one on the gardens of New Spain (that’s where I live), as well as a couple gaming manuals. (Warning, oh thou Hostages in the Court of the Faceless Tyrant, one’s all on the undead! Blame Jim.)
In my spare time I’ve been dipping into these new books and a scary heap of accumulated magazines. However, systematic reading has been preempted by visiting and other holiday fun.
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).
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.
Sorry… Nothing! Don’t mark me down…
The Commodore by Patrick O’Brian. (Audiobook.) Jack’s back on shore. I always worry when he’s on land. I think that’s why I’ve been scared to keep listening.
Continuing Naruto re-read and am up to issue 49.
