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 Stab In The Dark kicks off its second season with my chatting with Ian Rankin. I'm adding this one to the regular rotation (and listening to some back episodes)

  • Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire -- McGuire's follow-up to the wonderful Every Heart a Doorway is almost as good -- this one tells the story of Jack and Jill (the sisters, not the hill-climbers) before they found their door and of the adventures they found on the other side, all leading up to having to go toe Eleanor West's Home. I tried to post about this yesterday, but sleep won out.
  • The Data Disruption by Michael R. Underwood -- Speaking of prequels, here's the "lost pilot" to the Genrenauats series. The price is right -- free. Check out the link for details.
  • Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew Sullivan -- yes, the gentleman I referred to above. Glad I saw that essay, because it lead me to this: "When a bookshop patron commits suicide, his favorite store clerk must unravel the puzzle he left behind." That's got the makings of a good one.

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to pandaduh for following the blog this week.
