Sampling some more WWII stuff this week and zeroing in on the largest armored battle in military history. I read one of Showalter's books many years ago and enjoyed it, but he doesn't seem to write much anymore.

Couple of chapters in, and a bit disappointed with Selina’s book. I think I get what the writers are going for, in terms of capturing the humor of the show, but the result is not at all the spotless, self-serving tome I would have expected from President Meyer.

Fevre Dream, by George R.R Martin, published here in the U.K as part of the Fantasy Masterworks series. It's the only Martin novel I've read outside of his ASOIAF books.

Now sampling a new writer who sets his stories up in Ontario, Canada. This ongoing mystery series is the basis for the CARDINAL television show that is still running strong north of the border.

Another new author to sample, with the setting in East Germany circa the 1970's. It's been a while since I read a good Cold War thriller.

Just finished JOHNATHAN STRANGE AND MR
NORRELL. Fun book with two of the most
infuriating protagonists I've ever read.

YOURS TRULY, JOHNNY DOLLAR, edited by Tommy Hancock. The
book contains a series of short mystery stories like the JOHNNY
DOLLAR radio program from the 1950s.
