FF: Or Even Weirder

Coco Reads

Honestly, this week I’m mostly reading Library of the Sapphire Wind by Jane Lindskold as I work on the editorial notes, but since I can’t edit before I go to bed or I have even weirder dreams than usual, I get in a little “fun” reading, too.  In case you missed my excited posts, it’s due to be released Spring 2022.

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 it’s also a great place to tell me what you’re reading. 

Recently Completed:

Castle Hangnail written and illustrated by Ursula Vernon.  This is an interesting work in her canon, with more text than her delightful Harriet the Hamster Princess and Danny Dragonbreath works, foreshadowing in its acceptance of “darker” elements, in many ways, the work she is doing as T. Kingfisher, including The Wizard’s Guide to Defensive Baking that I mentioned a few weeks ago.

In Progress:

Lucifer’s Crown by Lillian Stewart Carl.  Remember how last week I mentioned that reading Durant’s Age of Faith reminded me of a novel I haven’t re-read in years?  This is it.  I enthusiastically blurbed it, so I must have liked it.  Weird coincidence tied to last week’s post: Cover Art is by Ursula Vernon, proving yet again she can do other than Cute.

The Age of Faith by Will Durant, when time permits and the CD player doesn’t go ballistic.  It really, really doesn’t like the Dark Ages.

    I agree with your CD player! I am not a fan of the dark ages either…not the ancient ones or any that are more recent!

    This week, for a fun and easy read, I read Sour Puss (Mrs. Murphy #14) by Rita Mae Brown and, her cat, Sneaky Pie Brown. The books in this series strike me as in the same category as the Stehanie Plum books: Formula plot with loved main characters and fun secondary characters. Also, the early books are better than the latter ones, but I still enjoy them.
