note: my Current Reading post will be back next week
Thanks to “wish lists”, friends and family know just what to buy this old fella. Take a look:
The Mistletoe Murder and other Stories by P.D. James. Four stories in a nice smallish hardcover. I haven’t read any James in a long time.
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, music by James Newton Howard, 2 CD. I haven’t seen the film yet, but Howard is a favorite so the music is likely to be great.
Rogue One, music by Michael Giaccino (some of it based on original music by John Williams), music from the film, 21 queues.
More Star Wars: Heir to the Throne by Timothy Zahn. This is the first book of the Thrawn Trilogy, which is well thought of among Star Wars readers. If I like it, I’ll buy the other two.
Some good old fashioned pulp fiction: The Snarl of the Beast by Carroll John Daly. This is Volume 2 of The Collected Hard-Boiled Stories of Race Williams. I’m part way through Volume 1, and enjoying it, so I wanted this one.
The Complete Cases of The Dean, Volume 1 by Merle Constiner. I haven’t read anything by Constiner, including these Dean stories. Should be interesting. Thank you, Altus Press for these great pulp reprints!
I’m delighted with my gifts. What did you get for Christmas?
