Saturday Miscellany – 5/6/2017

Odds ‘n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You’ve probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

    A Book-ish Related Podcast Episode you might want to give a listen:

  • The Once and Future Podcast Ep. 152: Seanan McGuire/Mira Grant was very interesting — two of my faves on one episode.

    This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:

  • Robert B. Parker’s Little White Lies by Ace Atkins — one of Atkins’ best Spenser novels, my blog post on it
  • Cold Reign by Faith Hunter — Jane Yellowrock’s latest really rocked. Read my take on it.
  • The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan — the 2nd installment of the Apollo’s search for redemption.
  • The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion — I had serious problems with this one, as you can read here, but there’s no denying that Simsion can write a compelling character (or two).
  • Tune Up by Joe Klinger — Klinger was the 2nd author I interviewed, and his answers remain one of my favorites. I’ve had the predecessor to this sitting on my Kindle for over a year. Hopefully having this one on the Kindle, too, will get me moving.

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and welcome to J. A. Allen for following the blog this week.

One thought on “Saturday Miscellany – 5/6/2017

  1. That Guardian Article just about made me throw up. I’d like to know what rock that “professor” has been living under. Everything he mentions about ebooks, applies 100fold to simply surfing the internet. But I don’t hear him screaming for everyone to get off the internet and go back to mailing letters.

    And that’s all the nice stuff I have to say…
