It's been awhile

since I last updated I have gotten:

Bride of Tranquility by Tracy Morris
and
Crossed Genres Year one
both from teh publishers

I have read:

Must Love Hellhounds (4 Novellas) have to say I was a little dissapointed in this the only story that has stuck with me was the last story.

Bride of Tranquility: this book was a lot of fun. I totaly sugest it for anyone.

Wither (John Passarella and Joe Gangemmi) I had some trouble with the setting - I lived in the area for many years and it just didn't ring quite true. Once I made it Newark DE I enjoyed the book enough to read the other two right in a row

Wither's Rain (Passarella)it may have been a tiny sub plot but some of the best discriptions of recovering froma tramatic injury and dealing with chronic pain I have ever read (and I know of what I speak there)

Wither's Legacy (Passarella) Rain was my fav - but I liked this enough to stop during the climax for a day - just to make the book last longer.

Ten Little Indians (Sherman Alexie) I can not say enough good about this man

War Dances (Sherman Alexie) this one was a mixed Poem and Prose work. Again I can't say enough good about this man.

Frostbite (David Wellington) werewolf book. I thought this would be a little more IDK horror but it was still a good time.

Mercy Thompson: Homecoming (story by Briggs art by Lawrence, Tsai and Woo) of all the chick Urban Fantisy cherciters I love Mercy the most.

nope it's 9 stories by a Native American author

And I don't know if it is a reference to the Agitha Christy novel - or the poem that she got the titel from (all I remeber is the last one commits suicide) or the 'one little two little three little Indians'

ahhh....

here's the poem Christie used:
Ten little Indian boys went out to dine;
One choked his little self and then there were nine.

Nine little Indian boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were eight.

Eight little Indian boys traveling in Devon;
One said he'd stay there and then there were seven.

Seven little Indian boys chopping up sticks;
One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.

Six little Indian boys playing with a hive;
A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.

Five little Indian boys going in for law;
One got into Chancery and then there were four.

Four little Indian boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.

Three little Indians boys walking in the zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were two.

Two Little Indians boys sitting in the sun;
One got frizzled up and then there was one.

One little Indian boy left all alone;
He went out and hanged himself and then there were none.

the book that was the most fun was Bride of Tranquility.

Wither is pritty much out of print (you can get an expensive colectors copy but I found my copy used)

Must Love Hell Hounds - I wish the last two stories were full lenth novels and may serch for novels by those authors. The realy funny thing about it is I read the other two authors and didn't realy enjoy those two stoories.

Sherman Alexei is probably the best author I have ever read. ever.
