The Early Years: (Almost) Easter & A Price Drop Announcement
Looking for an inexpensive novel to read while we’re all under orders to stay home as much as possible? I’ve reduced the price to 99 cents on the ebook editions of all the novels that are currently under my control (all of them except Night Watchman*, whose publisher abruptly closed up shop last year — a fact I only learned about when I noticed it had disappeared from the Kindle store).

Teaser Tuesday: “The Night Bird”
This week’s Teaser Tuesday comes from The Night Bird, by Brian Freeman, in which a serial killer starts targeting the patients of a psychiatrist whose therapeutic technique involves replacing her patients’ traumatic memories with new, non-traumatic ones, thus curing them of their phobias or whatever. Sort of like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, only without the attractions of any actual science fiction or Kate Winslet.

This one is not a Merrily Watkins novel, but it is a—wait for it!—paranormal mystery. Of sorts.

Teaser Tuesday 9/10/2019: “The Strain”
So I am finally getting around to reading The Strain, the first in an apocalyptic vampire trilogy by Guillermo del Toro (whom you may have seen mentioned here once or twice) and Chuck Hogan (whom you probably, uh, haven’t). I’ve had this book lying around since like 2015, so, yeah, it’s about time it floated to the top.
Not A Review Of “Carnival Row”
So this week we started watching Carnival Row, a new streaming fantasy series from Amazon Prime:
Teaser Tuesday 8/27/19: “The Atomic Sea”
So this week I was reading The Atomic Sea by Jack Conner:
