I couldn’t seem to get interested in another novel, I’m reading short stories. I started the collection West of Guam: The Complete Cases of Jo Gar by Raoul Whitfield (from Altus Press). Chock full of stories and two shortish novels from the pages of Black Mask Magazine. I’ve liked the Whitfield I’ve read in the past, so I expect to like this.
The other short story collection – anthology really – is Worldmakers, SF Adventures in Terraforming edited by Gardner Dozios. So I’ll be alternating between pulp detective stories and SF adventures. I may throw in a few Sherlock Holmes stories too. That should keep me interested.
Now she’s waiting for a Henning Mankell novel that should be available at the library any day now. Meanwhile, she’s catching up on sewing for her daughter, some quilting, and Thanksgiving planning.
What about you? What are you reading?
