FF: Mystery and Adventure

Kwahe’e and Poirot

With the new editions of the “Breaking the Wall” ebooks done and my tax stuff completed, I moved to reviewing the copy edited manuscript of Wolf’s Soul, also known as Firekeeper 8, the direct sequel to last summer’s Wolf’s Search.  Such is the glamorous life of a writer.

Listening to my long-time favorite, Agatha Christie, I had an idea for a murder mystery…

For those of you unfamiliar with this column, 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.

And I really enjoy hearing about what you’re reading!

Recently Completed:

The Hollow by Agatha Christie.  Audiobook.

A Caribbean Mystery by Agatha Christie.  Audiobook.

In Progress:

Marque of Caine by Charles E. Gannon.  Quite long.  Still plowing through.

The Big Four by Agatha Christie.  Audiobook.  An over-the-top pulp adventure, quite unlike her more usual Poirot.  Closer to the type of story she’d usually do with Tommy and Tuppence.


Back to research reading for my next project: the fourth Star Kingdom novel, in collaboration with David Weber.

    I finished A Beautiful Friendship by David Weber. I enjoyed learning the back story of the Treecats.

    I also finished The Chase (Fox & O’Hare #2) by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. It is no Stephanie Plum, but is still a quick, easy read. The plot was full of action, even if it was a bit farfetched. The dialogue tried to equal the banter of the Stephanie books, but it never quit got there. I wanted something light and this was that.

    I am still reading The Marco Effect (Department Q #5) by Jussi Adler-Olsen. It took me a while to get hooked on this book, but now it is a real page turner!

    I have started The Unspoken Name (The Serpent Gates #1) by A.K. Larkwood, a British author. I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. It is a fantasy. I am only a few pages in, but it is ok so far.

    One of these days, I’m gonna write that SF cozy mystery in my head.
    But not today.

    Currently re-reading things:
    Seanan McGuire’s first 2 InCryptid novels
    Terminal Freedom, by Daniel Keys Moran and Jodi Moran
    The first Courtney Crumrin comic book collection

    Finished Wolf’s Search, now waiting for what comes next. Reading Stars Beyond by S. K. Dunstall. Didn’t realize when I picked it up that I’d read the first book, so that was a pleasant surprise.
