Small House of Everything

Monday, August 1, 2011


A good week.

  • Greg Bear, The Forge of God.  Science fiction.
  • Marc Cerasimi, 24 Declassified:  Trojan Horse.  TV tie-in.
  • Tim Cockey, Murder in the Hearse Degree.  Mystery.
  • Stephen Colbert, among others, I Am America (And So Can You!).  Humor.
  • Michael Crichton, Travels.  Nonfiction.
  • Michael Gilbert, The Night of the Twelfth.  Mystery.
  • Caroline Graham, The Killing at Badger's Drift.  Mystery, the first Inspector Barnaby novel.
  • Bob Hamilton, Gene Autry and the Thief River Outlaws.  Whitman juvenile western featuring you know who.
  • Joe L. Hensley, A Killing in Gold.  A Robak mystery.
  • Ryerson Johnson, Mississippi Flame. Novel, expanded from the 1946 story "Dry-Land Pirate" in Short Stories Magazine.
  • William W. Johnstone, Flames for the Ashes, D-Day in the Ashes, Betrayal in the Ashes, and Slaughter in the Ashes.  Numbers 18, 20, 21 and 23 in the post-apocalyptic series.
  • Barry B. Longyear, Circus World.  Science fiction collection of seven stories.
  • Cynthia Manson, editor, Murder Under the Mistletoe and Other Stories.  Fifteen holiday stories selected from Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine.
  • Larry Niven and Edward M. Lerner, Juggler of Worlds.  Science fiction.  A Known Space novel.
  • Jack Pearl, The Space Eagle:  Operation Doomsday.  Whitman juvenile science fiction, considered by some to be one of the worst SF books ever published.  The story is by Jack Pearl, based upon characters and settings by Raymond J. Meuer and developed by Meurer-Preston-Austion, Inc.  I have no idea what this means; I presume this is a tie-in, but I can't find anything to tie it to!  There was at least one other space Eagle book published by Whitman, supposedly equally as bad.
  • Tom Piccirilli, The Midnight Road.  Suspense.
  • "Darren Shan", The Demonata, Book 4:  Bec.  YA fantasy/horror.
  • Robert Silverberg, The Alien Years.  Science fiction.
  • Daniel Stashower, The Beautiful Cigar Girl:  Mary Rogers, Edgar Allan Poe, and the Invention of Murder.  Nonfiction/true crime.
  • Tim Sullivan, V:  The New England Resistance.  TV tie-in from the original series.
  • Jeff Todd Titon, editor, Downhome Blues Lyrics:  An Anthology from the Post-World War II Era.  Some great lyrics here, such as Lightnin' Leon's Repossession Blues, here done by Billy Riley:
  • Jon Tuska, editor, The American West.  Western anthology of twenty stories.
  • Lionel White, Clean Break.  Mystery.
  • Charles Williford, The Woman Chaser.  Crime
