FF: Saints and Elephants

Jim’s been home sick all week with the flu, and I’ve been doing my best not to catch it.  That’s limited my reading time – especially for audio – more than usual.

Book Chat!

For those of you just discovering this part of my blog, 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:

All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater.  Very different from other work by her that I’ve read.  If you like magical realism, you may like this, but if you only want the same as The Scorpio Races or “The Raven Cycle” you could be disappointed.

In Progress:

Evil Chasing Way by Gerald Hausman.

Barsk: The Elephant’s Graveyard by Lawrence M. Schoen.  Audiobook.  The only drawback of reading this one in audio is some of the species names aren’t clear to the ear as I am sure they would be to the eye.

Also:

The Dragon of Despair by Jane Lindskold.  I should finish today.
