I’m pretty much healed now, and immersed in work, but I’m still reading!
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.
The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. Audiobook. Proves conclusively that those who think Victorian fiction is all dry and boring have simply read the wrong novels!
Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork. Not an easy book to sum up, but I can say I very much liked it.
Lamb by Christopher Moore. I’m impressed with the level of research that went into this.
Knight of Shadows. Audiobook. Eighteen episodes of The Shadow radio drama. Moving on to the close…
Been spending a lot of time re-reading my own Smoke and Mirrors. The e-book is in the final stages of preparation. Sign up for my mailing list (a link is available on my website) to be among the first to hear when it’s ready.
