Marie Brennan’s third memoir of Lady Trent, The Voyage of the Basilisk, was the best book in the series so far. I enjoyed it a lot and am now eager for the next installment, which is no doubt a year away.
Next I read Poor Poor Ophelia by Carolyn Weston, which I also enjoyed. Published in 1971, the rights to this book were bought and it was turned into the Quinn Martin production The Streets of San Francisco. (The book takes place in Santa Monica and L.A.). My review is forthcoming.
After enjoying Old Venus, I now have Old Mars, the other ‘old planet’ collection edited by George RR Martin and Gardner Dozois. I’m looking forward to reading it.
Barbara finished XO by Jeffrey Deaver, which she liked very much indeed. She also finished, just a few hours ago, The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. She raced through it, really liked the writing, and won’t tell me anything about the plot because she says I should read it.
Next up for her is The Lion, The Lamb, The Hunted by Andrew E. Kaufman. She saw Kaufman on a panel at Portland Left Coast Crime, and decided to try this, his first one.
