Tons of Research

Roary Illuminates

This week most of my reading time went to research for a short story I’m writing.  I enjoyed doing the research, actually, but it is why my list hasn’t changed much.

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. 


Minor Mage by T. Kingfisher (aka Ursula Vernon).  Re-read before bed because the Cooney can be just a little too vivid for peaceful dreams.

In Progress:

European Travel for Monstrous Gentlewomen by Theodora Goss.  Audiobook.  Excellent reader.

The Twice-Drowned Saint by C.S.E. Cooney.  Vivid setting, interesting characters, and some fine plot twists.  I scored an ARC of this, but I’m happy to announce you can get it as a new release.

Illuminations by T. Kingfisher. One of her “middle grade” books, but the monster is creepy as all get out, so definitely a shade of horror.


The latest Archeology magazine.  Now reading about re-analysis of a burial of a neolithic shaman.

    Sounds like a good, productive week.
    I finished Hell Bent (Alex Stern #2) by Leigh Bardugo. The plot was exciting and the characters were well written. There is going to be a third book, so I am looking for it.
