FF: Sailing on…

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 magazines.

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:

Blue at the Mizzen by Patrick O’Brian.  Audiobook.  Last in the series!

Memory and Dream by Charles de Lint.  In addition to a complex plot with a truly creepy antagonist, a considerable meditation about the complex relationship between the private and public artist.

Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring by Masashi Kishimoto.  A stand-alone sequel to series.  I suspect intended as a companion piece to the anime movie Boruto (which I haven’t seen).

In Progress:

Roverandom by J.R.R. Tolkien.  A children’s story.

The Man Who Was Thursday by G.K. Chesterton.  Loving it!

Knight of Shadows.  Eighteen episodes of The Shadow radio drama.  All new to me!

Also:

Pulling random research material together.

    Finished reading this week:
    “To Your Scattered Bodies Go” by Philip Jose Farmer – I’d seen two TV movie adaptations of Riverworld but I ran across the first book in the series at a convention recently and said, okay, time to explore it.

    Began Re-reading this week:
    “Stardust” (novel version) by Neil Gaiman

      I really enjoyed To You Scattered Bodies Go. Read it in college with a couple of friends. We really enjoyed discussing the series as it evolved. Fond memories.
