Christmas Goodies – books

Each year, as expected and desired, I receive some books at Christmas. Here is this year’s bounty. All but one of these I had put on a “wish list” and those wishes were fulfilled. A very nice selection, I look forward to reading every one. By the way, on the Big Book of Female Detectives, I have both the print book and, for ease of reading, the ebook. Cool.

  1. Obviously, you were on Santa’s NICE list instead of his NAUGHTY list. I enjoyed THE BIG BOOK OF FEMALE DETECTIVES. I think I have a copy of ASTOUNDING DAYS around here somewhere (the cover looks very familiar). The other books look intriguing. You have a lot of great reading ahead in 2019!

    Nice! I haven’t read it yet, but I do have the William Brittain collection from Crippen & Landru, and will definitely be getting that new Martin Edwards anthology. The Clarke looks good too.

    I’m surprised that my library doesn’t have the Edwards book even though it came out in October. It doesn’t have the Clarke either.

    Those are some nice gifts. It does seem a good way to go to get both the ebook and the print version for The Big Book of Detectives.

  5. A nice Xmas bonanza you got there, Richard. I’d like to read Arthur C. Clarke’s ASTOUNDING DAYS though the others sound equally good.

    Santy Claus sure plays close attention to your letters, you lucky kid.

  7. Rick – The BIG BOOK OF FEMALE DETECTIVES has a lot of good stories in it – including a Richard Sale, a Frederick Nebel, and a T.T. Flynn (I’ve never read any of his non-Westerns).
