Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

  • Jonathan Barnes, The Somnambulilst.  Mystery novel with fantasy overtones, or, perhaps, a fantasy novel with mystery overtones.
  • Alan Campbell, Iron Angel.  Fantasy.
  • John L. Cook, Armor at Fulda Gap.  Military SF, dubbed "A Visual Novel of the War of Tomorrow," includes diagrams, photographs, blueprints, and battle plans.  It all seems a bit much for me and all these illustrations will surely distract from the reading.
  • Timothy Dorsey, The Riptide Ultra-Glide.  A whacky Florida mystery.
  • "Quinn Fawcett" (Chelsea Quinn Yarbro & Bill Fawcett), Against the Brotherhood and Embassy Row.  Mycroft Holmes mysteries.  The book jacket carries on the conceit that Quinn Fawcett is a single person, a Knights Templar of the Scottish Order.
  • A. Finnis, editor, The Cat-Dogs and Other Tales of Horror.  YA horror anthology with six stories.  Finnis, methinks, is a pseudonym.
  • "Robert Galbraith" (J. K. Rowling), The Silkworm.  The second Cormoran Strike mystery novel.
  • Ann Granger, Candle for a Corpse, Cold in the Earth, and A Season for Murder.  Cozy mysteries in the Mitchell and Markby series set in the Cotswolds.  How can you go wrong with murder in the Cotswolds?  One of my favorite murder locales.
  • Richard A. Lupoff, The Forever City.  SF.
  • Nancy Springer, I Am Mordred:  A Tale from Camelot.  An award-winning YA fantasy.

  1. As usual, a few things there that I'd love to read... if I ever had time. But then you're time has been cut into this last week too, I understand, what with grandchildren and kittens. Want pictures of kittens.
