    Recommendations for Westerns?

    I am reading my first western novel right now. I am about half way through Lonesome Dove and it is awesome.

    October 2017 - Ghosts and Monsters and Clowns!

    I haven't posted in a very long time. I am currently reading my first western genre book, Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. I love it so far!

    August Reading 2017

    I haven't posted in a while. Currently I have been reading Sebastien de Castell's The Greatcoats series. Right now I just started the last book in the series, Tyrant's Throne. Really enjoying it. I would recommend this series to others.

    The Book of Deacon by Joseph Lallo was boring. Way to much telling vs showing and the main character was too much of a prodigy and Mary Sue for my likings. Loving both Time of Grief, by Adrian Tchaikovsky and Legacy by Lois McMaster Bujold.

    I found My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk a real slog to read. I didn't care for the prose or themes at all. I only finished to find out who the murderer was. Now reading a free indie fantasy book, The Book of Deacon by Joseph Lallo. It is OK, Way too much telling rather than showing.

    I loved Beguilement by Lois McMaster Bujold. While I am waiting for the next library ebook in the The Sharing Knife series, I have started reading My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk. I admit the odd POVs (ie a tree!) and non-linear structure took me a while getting used to.

    I found Gods of Risk novella in the Expanse world just ok. I didn't care about Bobbie Draper's nephew getting into trouble. Eruption: The Untold Story of Mount St. Helens by Steve Olsen was great. This was the human side of the story I didn't know much about and I am glad I filled in my gap of knowledge. Now enjoying the heck out of the first novel of Lois McMaster Bujold's The Sharing Knife series, Beguilement.

    I found Calamity by Brandon Sanderson alright. The ending bothered me in some Way. Now reading an Expanse novella, Gods of Risk.

    Authors who vanished from the face of the planet

    Nathalie Mallet, the author of the Prince Amir Mysteries (The Princes of the Golden Cage,The King's Daughters, Death in the Travelling City). I met her at the 2008 WorldCon and had a fantastic conversation. I know she was one of the authors that got screwed over in the Nightshade publishing debacle, but still managed to get the other books published. I know she had a sequel planned after the Death in the Travelling City, but haven't heard peep since 2014.
