So this week I’m reading Devil’s Lair, by David Wisehart, in which William of Ockham — yes, that William of Ockham — goes in search of the Holy Grail. And how does one find the Holy Grail? By retracing the steps of the narrator of Dante’s Inferno, of course!
So one or two weekends ago, one of my cousins and her nine-year-old daughter came down to visit our puppy. I mean visit us.
So this week I’m reading — or rather, re-reading — The Golden Spiders, another entry in the Nero Wolfe series, by Rex Stout. The spiders in question are not Spiders from Mars, but rather, an unusual pair of earrings worn by a woman in a car who asks a squeegee urchin to call the police. Hilarity (and, of course, murder) ensues.
