I finished Fear of the Dark by Gar Anthony Haywood, thought it was pretty good. Yes, I’m still reading Old Venus, though I have only two stories to go. Rather than discussing it here, I’ll have a review up soon. Time ran out on it at the library and I had to get back on the list for it again, it just came yesterday. Since I watched basketball, ran errands and worked in the garden yesterday, I’ll finish up the book today.
Next up, two more library books, Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear and Old Mars, the first collection by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozos of retro stories, this time about the red planet instead of the swampy green one. I’ll start Karen Memory first, but may dip into Old Mars as well.
Barbara finished Dark Places by Gillian Flynn which she liked pretty well and says she could see it becoming a movie after the success of Gone Girl. She is almost finished with The Pyramid by Henning Mankell, which is a short novel and four short stories. She is reading it as an ebook on the iPad, and mostly likes doing so in that format.
Next up for her is A Darker Domain by Val McDermid, thanks to a blog comment by Jeff Meyerson. Thanks, Jeff!
We both wonder when we’ll get to the books we got at LCC, not to mention the things we’ve gotten for our own shelves recently (as in the last few years…)!
