FF: I’d Like to Read

Perspehone Considers How

Most of my reading time this week has been writing time, which I don’t mind at all.  After all, I write the stories I’d like to read.

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.  Two of the series I’m trying right now are due to FF reader mentions.

Completed:

Life by Keith Richards and James Fox.  Memoir.  Audiobook.  Finished this just as the Stones announced their next tour, named 60 for the number of years the Stones have been together. 

Highway of Eternity by Clifford Simak.  Structure is a bit peculiar, but he pulls it together by the end and I found the ending satisfactory.

In Progress:

Master of Djinn by P. Djeli Clark.  Audiobook.  Prologue and two chapters in.

Prospero’s Children by Jan Siegel.  This one’s been sitting on my shelf for a long while.  Decided to give it a try. 

Also:

Finished Smithsonian.  Still reading Jim’s ms.

    This week I finished The Getaway God (Sandman Slim #6) by Richard Kadry. Sandman Slim gets talked into working for the supernatural branch of Homeland Security. He fights to keep the old gods from entering the world and destroying it. Lots of action.

    Then I read Tales of the Greatcoats Vol. 1: Swashbuckling Fantasy Stories by Sebastien de Castell. I enjoyed the Greatcoat series and liked the characters. These stories involve some of the other characters who did not star in the books. Great read!

    Last, I read Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Murder (Hannah Swensen #27) by Joanne Fluke. These stories are pretty much the same. Bad guy dies, recipes, Hannah investigates, recipes, Hannah solves the case, recipes. Seemed like half the book was recipes. I don’t learn tho – I am reading #28 now.

    I need to take a look at the “Greatcoat’ series. I don’t think I’ve heard of it before this.
