Today I finished Phil Rickman's The Bones of Avalon, a very good read and I'm certainly going to get book two in the John Dee Papers series.

.
I really really like Phil Rickman, will have to get hold of this one.

A good issue. I enjoyed all the longer stories and most of the short ones.

I just finished "Time Grabber", a short story by Gordon R. Dickson - wickedly funny.

I'm starting to read Anthony Trollope's "Can you forgive her?". It is excellent so far, here is a sampler:

"Two years after his wife’s death Mr Vavasor was appointed assistant commissioner in some office which had to do with insolvents, and which was abolished three years after his appointment. It was at first thought that he would keep his eight hundred a year for life and be required to do nothing for it; but a wretched cheeseparing Whig government, as John Vavasor called it when describing the circumstances of the arrangement to his father, down in Westmoreland, would not permit this; it gave him the option of taking four hundred a year for doing nothing, or of keeping his whole income and attending three days a week for three hours a day during term time, at a miserable dingy little office near Chancery Lane, where his duty would consist in signing his name to accounts which he never read, and at which he was never supposed even to look. He had sulkily elected to keep the money, and this signing had now been for nearly twenty years the business of his life. Of course he considered himself to be a very hardly-used man. One Lord Chancellor after another he petitioned, begging that he might be relieved from the cruelty of his position, and allowed to take his salary without doing anything in return for it. "

I thoroughly enjoy Trollope's work.

"Can You Forgive Her?" is an excellent Victorian novel, full of the wonderful characterizations he is famous for.

Well it turns out that I couldn't get into The Drowning Girl either! So I decided to try out Jack Reacher. I began reading Killing Floor (Jack Reacher #1) by Lee Child. It grabbed me and I am enjoying it, finally!

One of the best series that I've started so far. I've only completed the 5th book so far but I enjoyed every one of them immensely.

I'm not a fan of Reacher, though I can definitely understand the appeal. Another you might find interesting is the Jane Whitefield series by Thomas Perry.

I listened to Trollope's The Way We Live Now recently: 32 hours and so well done I swear I could've listened to the whole thing straight through!

Now that's what I call the perfect book, you can't bear to put it down, gotta know what's happening but can't bear the thought of getting to the last page.

Taking a 'time-out' with Virgil Flowers. It's a re-read, but he's such an enjoyable character, I don't mind at all!
