Teaser Tuesday 5/15/2018: “A Family Affair”

This week I’m partway through another dead tree book, A Family Affair, the final “proper” (i.e., written by Rex Stout) Nero Wolfe novel, although after this I do still have a book containing a few stories that were discovered and published posthumously. As for the other posthumous”Nero Wolfe” books, well, we aleady discussed how those don’t exist …

Not to be confused with “Family Affair”, “All in the Family”, “An Affair to Remember”, or anything written by Robert Goldsborough.

Random Rejection: Pulp Eternity, “The Fold”

As it’s been a while since I dipped into my trove of rejection letters, this week I turned to random.org, asked them for a letter, and got an “E”. So I reached into the folder and pulled out this nice one, from Pulp Eternity, which is either from the end of 1998 or the beginning of 1999:

Teaser Tuesday: “The Adventures of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser”

This week (and probably next week …) I’m reading The Adventures of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, by Fritz Leiber, a “box set” (insofar as anything on an eReader is a “box set”) comprising Swords and Deviltry, Swords Against Death, and Swords in the Mist.

Teaser Tuesday 11/21/2017: “The Towers of Sunset”

This week I’m reading The Towers of Sunset, by L.E. Modesitt, Jr., in which a young prince (sort-of — I haven’t quite figured out the exact nature of royal roles in this book) decides to skip town instead of allowing himself to be married off to a nearby ruler’s daughter. Because the “town” in question is a castle that’s basically situated in the middle of an arctic plateau, skipping it is a pretty major undertaking.

Teaser Tuesday 11/14/17: Still In “The Hole Behind Midnight”

This week I’m still reading The Hole Behind Midnight, by the aptly-named Clinton J. Boomer (apt because he has made a lot of things go “boom” in the book by this point).
