Some Fiction and a James Sallis Musical Interlude


Willnot by James Sallis. Small town doctor unsettled by dead bodies in the woods.

--Musical Interlude--Musical Interlude--Musical Interlude--Musical Interlude--
I was looking Sallis up two weeks ago. He has a band that plays in Phoenix, Three Legged Dog. You can listen to a few tunes online. If you wonder what modern life in Phoenixx is like read Salli'ss novel Driven.

Musical Interlude--Musical Interlude--Musical Interlude--Musical Interlude--Musical Interlude--

Nine Women, One Dress by Jane L Rosen.  Do they all wear the dress at the same time? No, just stories as the dress passes from maker to sales to owner.

Jonathan Unleashed by Meg Rosoff. Guy with a personal crisis looks after his brother's pet dogs. My pet dog refused to come inside when I left home after lunch.  She really likes to stay outside and loaf.

The Boy at the Top of the Mountain by John Boyne. The cover illustration says "wartime prison camp".  The dust cover says, "Orphan lives with aunt in 1936 Austria."

Shadow Rider by Christine Feehan. Feehan writes a lot of romance-y looking fantasy novels. People enjoy her books.

Ridgerunner by Rusty Barnes. I think I bought this novel because someone on Facebook was plugging it. That or Bill Crider plugged the book. Hey, check that out, the front cover has a blurb by James Sallis. Sallis is all over this blog post.

Chance Developments by Alexander McCall Smith. Five short stories inspired by "vintage photographs."

Meet Me Halfway: Milwaukee stories by Jennifer Morales.  A very diverse neighborhood after a boy hurts himself in someone's house.

Under the Harrow by Flynn Berry. Wait, don't we have a copy of this? Or am I confusing this with something else? Let me check... Ooooh. We have the audio version.
