Gave up on Atrocity Archives, can't get into it at all so I've started Asimov's Pebble in the Sky.

I have just finished reading "Songs of the Dying Earth" - an anthology of 20 stories by various authors in tribute to Jack Vance's "The Dying Earth". I first came across Jack Vance in a volume of Hugo winners - his novella "Dragon Masters". I shall now have to look up more of his works.

I got on to Harlan Ellison and Barry B Longyear through those Hugo/Nebula winners books. :)

I'm reading American Elsewhere by Robert Jackson Bennett. Grabbed it at the library on a whim and I'm having a hard time putting it down!


Some places are too good to be true.
Under a pink moon, there is a perfect little town not found on any map.
In that town, there are quiet streets lined with pretty houses, houses that conceal the strangest things.
After a couple years of hard traveling, ex-cop Mona Bright inherits her long-dead mother's home in Wink, New Mexico. And the closer Mona gets to her mother's past, the more she understands that the people of Wink are very, very different ...

I have a collection of the first three Hornblower books in one edition that I've been meaning to read for ages. I've finally gotten around to it and am enjoying it. :)

Me too. For some reason I thought we had it but couldn't find it anywhere. Turns out I read chapter 1 elsewhere so ordered myself a copy.

Finished this today. It was really good!

I loved it, anything in that era i find facinating, If i could go back in time it would be to the Victorian era, That and the Roman era, But i for one found Dodger very good. But not everyone enjoyed it, which totally baffles me, but each to their own tastes and opinions eh! :D :D

I'm in a reading slump at the moment. Can't seem to concentrate or relax into a book. I've been reading the same book for ages, where usually it only takes a week or so to read something. I don't know what's going on, life is busy at the moment but it's always busy so that can't really be it. Whatever it is I hope it goes away.

One good thing, my daughter is reading Good Omens and I've been having great conversations with her about that.

Sorry Sister J. I've gone through that and it's frustrating.

Just finished Bad Little Falls. Good mystery, quick read.
