Story behind this late post isn't as interesting -- but nicer -- than last week's. If you're curious, check out my other blog in a bit (bit = 1-48 hours). Otherwise, here are the 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:












  • Titan Shade by Dan Stout -- Alien Nation + whatever that Will Smith Urban Fantasy Netflix movie was + Life on Mars (UK version). Or something. UF about a homicide cop in the 70s. Looks like it could be fun.


  • Instant Karma by Todd Morr -- disgraced ex-cop becomes a security advisor to the underworld. Also looks like fun -- it's on my Kindle, hoping to get to it before the end of the year (I wish that was a joke...)


Lastly, I'd like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to Erwin Wensley, dragonflybooks, virgoebooks and BOOKVENGER-44 for following the blog this week.
