November reading update

I read 7 books for this month.  Another ebook only month, Kindle Unlimited had some good options.

I read Larry Correia’s second high fantasy book, the third is out next year or so.  It was a little thin, but still engaging.  T.W.O. read it too and what jumped out for him as a flaw was the lack of dance.  Dance is deeply important to martial fighters for what are no longer obvious reasons, and it’s usually absent from fantasy fiction involving martial arts these days, and this was, alas, no exception.  I continued in sequels with the latest in a magitek series written very quickly by one of the assortment of modern pulp authors.  It was ok, I’ll probably read a third or fourth.

I also read some more Tanith, short stories and novellas that were easy to check out.  I finally read Cordwainer Smith’s spy novel, published under yet another pen name.  It is all too short, but very action-filled and fascinating.

I also read one of those historical society collections of annotated pictures about a pair of counties in Indiana because it had a paragraph about Gene Stratton-Porter.  I thought it would be more than that, lol.  The evolution of the counties over a century was much more interesting than expected.  Indiana is a major cultural fulcrum point in American literature and social myth.

I have some print books I’ve been working on, but I don’t know if they’ll be done by December’s end.

Anyway, 94 books down, 6 to go.
