Lots and lots of research reading is not reflected in this Fragment. Let’s leave it said that right now I’m a major contributor to increasing my library’s circulation figures.
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.
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Audiobook. Enjoyed.
Welcome Chaos by Kate Wilhelm. This was recommended to me back when Alan and I were Tangenting about books wherein Immortality is the governing trope. Interesting.
Extreme Birds by Dominic Couzens. This last week, the defense mechanisms of the newly hatched hoopoe won. They will definitely find their way into a story, somehow!
Naruto. Keeps getting darker as old lies and older rivalries surface. Issues 57-61.
Guns edited by Gerald Hausman. Anthology that contains my short story “Choice of Weapons.” Still browsing through various pieces.
