Reminder!  Tomorrow, Saturday, February 24that 4:00 pm: Fantasy Fiction Spectacular at Page One.  I’ll be signing my latest, Asphodel, along with authors Brenda Drake and Gabi Stevens, who will be signing their own works.  For more details go to www.page1book.com.

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:

The Ship of the Dead (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Book Three) by Rick Riordan.  Audiobook.  Just started.

Giant Trouble (Hamster Princess 4) by Ursula Vernon.  I loved the “harpster.”  Twisted!

Attack of the Ninja Frogs (Dragonbreath 2) by Ursula Vernon.  Makes for weirdly excellent dreams.

Curse of the Were-Wiener (Dragonbreath 3) by Ursula Vernon.

Lair of the Bat Monster (Dragonbreath 4) by Ursula Vernon.

Squire (Protector of the Small, book 3) by Tamora Pierce.   Audiobook.   I wish real-world leaders had to face the Chamber of the Ordeal before taking office.

In Progress:

The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly.  This is one I can’t read before bedtime.  The portrayal of the inwardness landscape created by fear and grief was too well-done.  I ended up dreaming about my own father’s slow death, and others.

Lady Knight (Protector of the Small, Book 4) by Tamora Pierce.  Audiobook.  Just starting.  Pierce may be unique among YA authors in that she takes her characters beyond school age concerns.  Refreshing.

Also:

Wolf Captured by Jane Lindskold.  Nearly done.  As I re-read this series, I’m coming to realize that many of the Firekeeper novels are actually two books.  In today’s market, that’s how they would have been published.  Something I am considering for Wolf’s Search.

    Just finished “The Cinderella Murder” by Mary Higgins Clark and Alifair Burke. A sequel to one of her solo mysteries and apparently the start of a series. Now reading “Peace Like a River.”

    P.S. I like the consideration on “Wolf’s Search.” That means I may be able to look forward to TWO Firekeeper books in my future instead of one.
