Four Books


Children of Kings by Marion Zimmer Bradley and Deborah J. Ross.  Science fiction.

House Girl by Tara Conklin.  I think I once tied reading House Gun by Nadine Gordimer.  That novel has a group of guys living together in South Africa.  The protagonist's of the novel are dismayed when their son is accused of murder by using the "house gun" (kept for home defense) on someone.  Dang, that came out in 1998.

House Girl is a dual story of 1852 slavery and a 2004 lawyer who tries to find a descendant. 

Gotcha! by Fern Michaels.  What a lousy cover.  A photo of red autumn leaves and what seems to be a porch out-of-focus in the background.  Heck, the title is small print and stuck in the lower right corner.

The Striker by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott.  This is a typical Cussler cover with A BIG FIERY EXPLOSION.  The co-author's name is printed in much, much smaller type.

Xtreme Berlin Training Thrones


Berlin 36 starring [Germans].  Fosbury flop free Jewish high jumper is harassed and harried by dirty, rotten, stinking, filfthy nazis to try and get her off the German Olympic team.

Game of Thrones: the complete second season starring The Great and Mighty Peter Dinklage and naked women (or so I've heard).  Sneakiness and secrecy seal sword swinging associates.
