FF: Past and Future Publications

Ziggy Contemplates With Starlight At Her Side

I’ve been meaning to remind you that The Long Sunset by Jack McDevitt, which I was privileged to read in advance of its official release, is now out.  It’s a Priscilla Hutchinson’s novel and involves aliens past and present.  A griping read, that gets pretty tense at times.

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.

What are you reading?

Recently Completed:

A Wind in the Door by Madeleine L’Engle.  Worth the re-read.

In Progress:

Out of the Deep I Cry by Julie Spencer Fleming.  Audiobook.  This one is turning into one of my favorite sort of mysteries – looking into a long past unsolved mystery, in this case combined with a current incident.

The Sacerdotal Owl and Three Other Long Tales by Michael Bishop.  A not-yet released collection of three novellas.  I’ve finished two, am into the third, and am greatly enjoying.  As a nice tie-in, the one I’m reading now “To the Land of Snows” first appeared in an anthology edited by Jack McDevitt entitled Going Interstellar.

Also:

I was almost caught up with magazines, then new ones started coming in!

    I am in the middle of the fourth and final book of Tad William’s Shadowmarch series, Shadowheart. I am not enjoying this series as much as some of his other works. Also still struggling to finish a book I won on Goodreads, The Jinn and the Sword. Very wordy.

  2. CBI Says:

    Finished A Rage for Glory: the life of Commodore Stephen Decatur, USN by James Tertius de Kay. Fascinating window into early 19th C. society and (especially) the U.S. Navy.

    The Grave’s a FIne and Private Place by Alan Bradley (Flavia de Luce series). Most recent in series: recommend starting from beginning The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.

    Current:
    Washington’s Crossing by David Hackett Fischer. Circumstances leading to Washington’s crossing of the Delaware and how it fit into the American Revolution. So far very good and eye-opening.
