  • Ben Bova, New Frontiers.  SF collection of 14 stories from one of the most respected voices in the field.  The stories cover a span from 1978 through 2014 and include one Sam Gunn story from 2012.  Bova just turned 84 this week.  Happy birthday!
  • Anna Dewdney, llama llama gram and grandpa.  Children's picture book.Over the years, I've been reading Dewdney's llama llama to a succession of grandchildren.  This one was a late birthday gift and it just so happens that the Kangaroo is four years old.   The author, Anna Dewdney, wrote 18 llama llama books before her all-to-soon death two months ago at age 50.
  • Cynthia Harrod-Eagles, Blood Lines.  An Inspector Bill Slider mystery, the fifth in the series.  "With his love Joanna off playing violin at a British opera festival, Detective Inspector Bill Slider puts aside his pub time to get involved with the Arts himself.  At the BBC studios, a prominent music and opera critic has apparently committed suicide in the gentlemen's loo prior to his scheduled appearance on a panel discussion program."  Harrod-Eagles has one foot planted firmly in detective fiction and the other in historical fiction.  To date she has published at least 90 novels.
