FF: Out and About

This week I was away from home on Tuesday and writing like someone possessed to make up for being away.  This did cut into my reading time.  Still, I managed.

Ogapoge’s the Coolest Cat

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:

The Father Hunt by Rex Stout.  Audiobook.  A Nero Wolfe tale.  Choppier than usual ending but I think even Nero Wolfe would say “satisfactory.”

In Progress:

Gaudy Night by Dorothy Sayers.  Audiobook.

On Bowie by Rob Sheffield.  As is so often the case with books ostensibly about Bowie, this book is more about the author’s reactions to Bowie’s work than about Bowie or Bowie’s work.

Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich.  Audiobook.  Jim and I often listen to Stephanie Plum novels on road trips.  They’re light, character-oriented, and seem to go well with being in constant motion.


Archeology Magazine is keeping up with alternately annoying and impressing me, depending on the article.  Makes me wonder about the editorial staff.  A lot.

    Your reactions to Archaeology Magazine might make for a Wednesday Wandering. You could talk about what annoys and impresses you, and then go into the same responses to other magazines. if you read them now or USED TO read them in the past but no longer do so.

      I could, but doing grumpy literary analysis doesn’t appeal to me — especially considering the work I would put in to do it write. I’d rather write stories!

      Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    I see Jane’s point. I don’t write grumpy comments I just write what’s clearly loyal even on my wiki comments whether video character, or another user, and even when defending myself from what another wiki user said. I let loyalty be the key value in my daily computer speech.

    But I also do as much as I can to help the admin of the wikis avoid the various unneeded rude reactions tons of the other users show quite daily, to help a little with safety.
