I’m still not reading much. Gloomy, rainy, windy weather may be part of that, but it’s mostly my distractions with football (a lot of college games on Friday and Saturday, and the pros on Thursday, Sunday and Monday) and the Ken Burns film (Sunday through Wednesday last week and this week).
About the best I’ve done is some short stories and short pulp “novels”, really novelettes. One of those collections will show up as a forgotten book(s) soon. I did recently read a coffee table book, Covering the New Yorker: Cutting-Edge Covers from a Literary Institution, Hardcover – October, 2000 by , if that counts, which had some interesting text and a lot of covers. Enjoyable, but light.
As far as the short stories go, I’m still plodding along in The Best of Manhunt edited by Jeff Vorzimmer. I’m finding many of the stories rough, in the sense of subject matter, not writing quality, which is pretty good for pulp stuff. So I’ve set it aside.
I now have a couple of SF novels just coming in to the library, which I’ll pick up in a day or two, and perhaps one or both of them will give me a positive reading jolt. We’ll see.
Meanwhile, what are you reading?
