Heat continues. I’ve been fighting computer problems. We slog on. I’m still reading short stories, same collections, which is okay, except there are novels I want to get to.
from The Black Lizard Big Book Of Locked-Room Mysteries:
The Aluminium Dagger – R. Austin Freeman
The Crewel Needle – Gerald Kersh
The Doctor’s Case – Stephen King
A Knife Between Brothers – Manly Wade Wellman
The Glass Gravestone – Joseph Cummings
I’ll continue reading stories from this thick book collection while I read other short story anthologies as well.
from the Resorting to Murder anthology edited by Martin Edwards:
Razor Edge by Anthony Berkeley Cox
Holiday Task by Leo Bruce (Sgt. Beef!)
A Posteriori by Helen Simpson
Where is Mr. Manetot? by Phyllis Bentley
The House of Screams by Gerald Findler
Cousin Once Removed by Michael Gilbert
That finishes up Resorting to Murder. A nice collection.
I’m enjoying reading short stories and plan on continuing with them for a while. Next week there’ll be a new collection or anthology I’ll be dipping into.
Barbara finished Darkness & Shadows by Andrew E. Kaufman. She’s continuing to enjoy the books by this author and is glad she discovered him on a panel at Portland LCC.
She just finished Blood on Snow by Jo Nesbo. It’s a standalone, not part of the Harry Hole series, but it’s well written.
Have you read these books or authors? What are you reading?
