Currently reading Silver on the Road, by Laura Anne Gilman. The first book in her The Devil's West series. I had read her Vineart series, and enjoyed it, but then did not enjoy another series by her, and had sort of gone off. But then saw a recommendation from a favourite author (Sharon Lee), and decided to give this a go. I'm rather enjoying it, so will likely read others in the series.

And I'm also reading The Shield of Time by Poul Anderson.
And now I've finished the F&SF and the Shield of Time.

The F&SF was only 4/5 this month. I wasn't fond of some of the stories. But on the whole, still very good.

The Shield of Time was a good Time Travel adventure.

And now I'm reading Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz, the next in his Odd Thomas series. I'm surprised to find I haven't read one since 2017. It's past time to remedy that. They are delightful.

Yesterday I finished Sister Light, Sister Dark by Jane Yolen. I knew it was the first book in a trilogy, but I thought it might be a stand-alone that became a trilogy. It's not a stand-alone, but it is a good book and I plan to get to the other books sooner rather than later.

I've just finished "Time Patrol", which is the first volume of Anderson's collected "Time Patrol" stories ("The Shield of Time" being the second volume). Agreed, very good indeed.

And very good it was too. Although the theme this time was a little too close to some real-world delusions to be entirely comfortable.

Next up: Pandora's Boy by Lindsay Davis. The sixth in her Flavia Albia series.

Just read Fire, Burn! by John Dickson Carr. A very nice "locked room" mystery although not as impossible a scenario some of these can be. Cheviot goes back in time to the newly established Scotland Yard to solve a murder that occurs right in front of him. Not as wordy as Carr is usually but extremely well researched as detailed in the Author's Notes at the end. Rated B [4 stars].

And very good it was too. An enjoyable investigation set in Rome in the time of Domitian.

Finishing up Neon Prey by John Sandford, the 29th book in the Prey series featuring Lucas Davenport, a former Minneapolis high-profile murder investigator now working with the U.S Marshalls. Several long standing characters, a couple that have their own series. Great books for rainy or restless days.

I'm hooked on series, once I find an author I like and a series I can get into I read them all in order.

Next up is Connections in Death by J.D. Robb featuring Eve Dallas another high-profile murder investigator. These novels are based in NYC in the year 2059+ a lot of futuristic ideas and including off-planet adventures that threw me off at first, but are realistic enough to work.

.
If you like series like John Sandford’s be sure and add C J Box, Robert Crais, Lee Child and Michael Connelly to your list. Or, alternately, you could try heroin; has about the same effect.

Finally finished The Autumn Republic by Brian McClellan. Took awhile to read but it was good.

Next up I need an easy romance novel, so Luck of the Draw by B.J. Daniels it is.

I finally for around to starting #Herofail, fourth in Lexie Dunne’s “Superheroes Anonymous” series, on Friday… and finished it the next day. Aside from a few minor typos, my only complaint at this point is the lack of a sequel.

I’ll most likely start NOS4A2 next, in hopes of reading it before the TV series begins next week.

Written in 1936, it shows the racism of the time. If one can overlook that, it's a good detective story.

Next up: [EDIT] Mr Midshipman Hornblower.

I'm a fan as well.

Not quite a third of the way into The Priory of the Orange Tree; only now starting to really pique my interest.
