Sandman Slim: A Novel
I'm just about to start this book, and I'm stupid excited about it. (1) I used to work with the author Richard Kadrey in San Francisco, and he's super talented. I'm delighted to see his humongous success with these books. (2) There's this: "Life sucks and then you die. Or, if you're James Stark, you spend eleven years in Hell as a hitman before finally escaping, only to land back in the hell-on-earth that is Los Angeles... Resurrection sucks. Saving the world is worse." Sounds like it was custom made for me, no?
The Big Over Easy: A Nursery Crime
I really enjoyed Ffjorde's The Eyre Affair, and this book—set in a world in which nursery rhyme characters are real and maybe not so nice—inspires me to use this phrase "fun romp." It's pretty charming with a light sense of humor and a mystery that kept me turning pages long past the time I should have been asleep.
journey to the past!
