Kellerman Consortia and Simon Scarrow


Golem of Hollywood by Jonathan Kellerman and Jesse Kellerman.  According to the author photo Jesse Kellerman looks more like his mom than dead.  A little difficult to tell since senior is facing the camera and junior is 1/4 profile.

The Blood of an Englishman by M.C. Beaton.  Another Agatha Raisin novel. Her bio says she was born in Scotland.  I wonder if she was eligible to vote in the independence referendum.  Did they call the vote a referendum or just a "vote"? Scots are weird.

The Paying Guest by Sarah Waters.  This sounds like one I would read.  London in 1922.  The post-war economy is poor and a formerly wealthy woman and daughter are obliged to take in tenants. "A love story, a tension-filled crime story, and a beautifully atmospheric portrait of a fascinating time and place."

The Zealot by Simon Scarrow.  I have not read this series in a couple years.  Fun stuff with Roman Legionnaires Cato and Macro in various adventures from Germany to Britain to Italy and now Judea. Historically accurate with adventures adventuring by adventurers.  Adventurers are weird.

Edge of Eternity by Ken Follett. Another door stopper by Follett of the Big Welsh Hair. A bunch of characters in the 1960s are printed on some real nice, heavyweight paper. Paper is weird.

Large Print

The Eye of Heaven by Clive Cussler and Russell Blake.  Cussler book covers are weird.

Festive in Death by J.D. Robb.

Robert B. Parker's Blind Spot by Reed Farrel Coleman.  Author estate titles are weird.


The Fault in our Stars starring [teen actors I never heard of] and Laura Dern.  Something about dying teenagers and love.  Chick movies are weird. When John Green spoke at an ALA luncheon a few months ago there was a security guy standing behind Green to fend away the gushing women librarians so Green could eat in peace. I'm serious.
