More of the Same Writers and a Repaired Star Wars Paperback


Locked In by Marcia Muller. Sharon McCone has "locked-in syndrome". After a late night attack at her P.I. firm she is mentally sharp but unable to move any part of her body. Her staff gathers clues while McCone tries to figure out who attacked her.

There Goes the Bridge by M.C. Beaton. "An Agatha Raisin Mystery" This probably has a recipe too. It seems like that type of mystery.

The Professional by Robert B. Parker. Another Spenser novel.

The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber. A perfect Christmas? You mean you ask for something and people don't say, "I'm not buying you any gun stuff!" or "Don't you have enough knives already?"

Blackstone and the New World by Sally Spencer. I thought these books were reprints of a dead author. Nope the author is alive and well. The author is also a guy, Alan Rustage.

13 1/2 Nevada Barr. A new standalone by Barr. Literature professor Polly lives in New Orleans and has a new architect boyfriend. Meanwhile, a recently released killer leaves Minnesota for New Orleans.


Manhood for Amateurs: the pleasures and regrets of a husband, father, and son by Michael Chabon. Here is my advice for Chabon, "Get a haircut, you look like a hippy."

Star Wars Repairs

Star Wars Omnibus: X-Wing Rogue Squadron Volume 1 by [no author listed]. These paperbacks are poorly bound and fall apart frequently.

You are telling me! I bought the Star Wars Clone Wars Adventures series for twice the price in prebound - they lasted a MONTH. We need an official "your binding stinks" protest petition to send to Dark Horse.
