It’s been so miserably hot – for Portland – that it’s taken a lot my reading energy away, but I did manage to get back in the mood for novel reading, so I finished three novelettes, a short story and a novel.
The novelettes are from a collection of three real oldie science fiction tales published by Black Dog Books: Zenith Rand, Planet Vigilante by Richard Tooker. The three novelettes: “Planet Vigilante”, “Revenge On Scylla” and “Angels Of Oorn”. I can’t say they were great, but they were fun.
I read one more short story from the mammoth collection The Black Lizard Big Book Of Locked-Room Mysteries: “The Man From Nowhere” by Edward D. Hoch, which was a re-read for me.
Current reading: a science fiction novel, A Darkling Sea, by James L. Cambias, which I’m enjoying a lot.
Now she’s reading Gathering Prey by John Sanford, his current novel, and loving it. Next up for her is Stephen King’s Finders Keepers, which is waiting at the library.
