Also one of my favourite solutions to recovering from a bad read! Right now, I'm reading Venetia in audio book format. Quite delightful.

I've just finished "By Any Other Name", an SF short story collection by Spider Robinson, which I originally bought from Baen in 2001. Extremely enjoyable, particularly the novella which is the "title story" of the book. Highly recommended, although I should perhaps note that a couple of the stories in the book are sexually explicit.

It was overall, a quite enjoyable read.

Now I'm going back to an old favorite (not Steampunk) author, Patricia Briggs and her collected Mercy Thompson short stories, Shifting Shadows: Stories from the World of Mercy Thompson.

I just saw the movie Winter's Bone on TV and since the novel, Winter's Bone by Daniel Woodrell was already in my TBR pile I decided that it was the time to give it a read.
I got just a few pages into Winter's Bone and then was sidetracked by a bunch of Thanksgiving Holiday honey-do's. Finally I got to return to my new Kindle Voyage and lo and behold, magically, instead of Winter's Bone being in front of me, right where I'd left off, Stephen King's new novel, Revival opened. I immediately read the first chapter and, like pretty much all of King's books, I was hooked.

I've been reading Mission Gamma Book One: Twilight: Twilight Bk. 1 (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) by David R. George III

...and it really seems to be jumping around quite a bit. I'm about 40% in an there still doesn't seem to be any solid plot line. I mean a few chapters here and there are good, but other than that I don't see a story.

Anyone else find this to be the case? I assume this is B1 of 3 and maybe that's why the slow start. I'm really considering moving on.

I couldn't bring myself to start at book 4 so I caved in and bought it.
When this happens to me, I'll often get book 1 from the library. If I liked it enough to want to keep a copy, I'll buy it then.

Magic Bites and Magic Burns were the first two PUF (paranormal and urban fiction) books I ever read. They turned me on to a whole new genre.

And so I'm now reading An Infamous Army by Georgette Heyer. Another Regency Romance, continuing with the characters from Regency Buck, but (as far as I've got, anyway) set in Belgium, and involving the Duke of Wellington. Looking good so far, although keeping track of all the characters is tricky. A re-read of Regency Buck beforehand might have been a good idea.

I read An Infamous Army recently and it was great. I wasn't aware Regency Buck was related until, sadly, afterwards. I started it but only a third way in. I haven't completed any fiction in (as of today) a whole month
