Small House of Everything

Monday, August 8, 2011


Lots of good stuff this week, mainly wesrterns and thrillers.  I'm particularly happy with the Thorne Smith and the Hadju.

  • Terrell L. Bowers, Destiny at Broken Spoke.  Western.
  • Max Brand, Don Diablo.  Western collection with  three stories featuring Jim Tyler.  The stories were originally published in Western Story Magazine in 1932 as by "Peter Henry Moreland".
  • "Lyle Brandt" (Mike Newton), The Lawman:  Helltown.  Western, probably the third in the series.
  • Peter Brandtvold, .45-Caliber Fury.  Western, probably the second in a series.
  • Matt Braun, El Paso and The Wild Ones, and Hangman's Creek and Jury of Six.  Westerns with two novels in each omnibus.
  • Lee Child, The Hard Way, One Shot, and Without Fail.  Jack Reacher thrillers.
  • Ralph Compton (actually, Dick Vaughn), Demon's Pass.  Posthumous western, "A Ralph Compton novel by Dick Vaughn."
  • Kit Dalton, Buckskin #13:  Gunpoint and #14:  Lever Action.  Adult westerns.
  • Gardner Dozois and Stanley Schmidt, editors, Roads Not Taken:  Tales of Alternate History.  SF anthology with ten stories, seven from Asimov's Science Fiction and three from Analog Science Fiction and Fact.
  • Frances Fyfield, Not That Kind of Place.  Mystery.
  • David Hadju, The Ten-Cent Plague:  The Great Comic Book Scare and How It Changed America.  Nonfiction.
  • Diana Henstell, The Other Side.  Horror.
  • Jake Logan, Slocum #207:  Blood on the Rio Grande and #213:  Slocum and the Great Southern Hunt.  Adult westerns.
  • John Lutz, Night Kills.  Thriller.
  • Tim Parks, Home Thoughts and Tongues of Flame.  Novels.
  • George P. Pelecanos, Nick's Trip.  A Nick Stefanos Mystery.
  • David Shobin, The Center.  Medical thriller.
  • Brian Scott Smith, When Shadows Fall.  Horror.
  • Thorne Smith, Rain in the Doorway.  Humorous fantasy.  One of the very few Smith books I haven't read.
  • Christopher Stasheff, The Warlock Unlocked and The Warlock Wandering.  Fantasies.
  • Whitley Strieber, Billy.  Thriller, with no grey aliens that I could see.
