I promised to post something when I returned to the United States from the Conch Republic. While there, I read A Place of Exeuction by Val McDermid. Good fast reading, mystery. Also Moon Creek Road by Elana Dykewomon, who wrote the incredible Beyond the Pale. "Moon Creek Road" is no "Beyond the Pale."

I also read Hallowed Murder, a Jane Lawless Mystery, which took all of 90 minutes. Ellen Hart apparently has won at least one Lambda award for Immaculate Midnight. Maybe it's better... "Hallowed Murder" was ridiculous.

Also read The Elephant in the Room, a Combat Manual for Democrats. It's dedicated to Hunter S. Thompson, so how could you go wrong reading it?

Suzannah (my faux wife) and I listened to two books on CD while Driving Miss Daisy/Linda to Key West. A Map of the World, by Jane Hamilton. Excellent!!! And Further Tales of the City, by Armisted Maupin. Didn't get that one finished so checked it out at IMCPL today to finish it up.

I'm currently re-reading Mote in God's Eye by Larry Niven for bookclub. We're doing sci-fi this year. In our bookclub, we take turns picking a book and leading the discussion. I had that dubious honor in January and chose Alternate Kennedys. "AK" is a collection of short "what if's"...what if Joe Sr hadn't been a manipulating egomaniac...what if Joe Jr had lived...what if Joe Jr had assassinated Jack...what if Bobbie had become a priest...great stuff.

More as the world turns...
