Ye-es!
6 0f 1 or 6 non-mysteries and 1 mystery.

Bender and Chernack
Born to be awkward :
celebrating those imperfect moments of babyhood
from the website
4th in the series


Christie Golden
Star Wars :
dark knight
4th in the Star Wars series

Normally, she writes books for a series. Having written . . .
14 in the Star Trek series -- 8 in the War craft series -- 5 in the StarCraft series -- 2 in the  Assassin's Creed series -- 1 in the Hex series + 7 non-series novels.

I 1st came across her when I read her Vampire of the Mists for the Raven loft series. A fantasy series with a horror twist or a horror series with a fantasy twist. I hold that her Vampire of the Mists is not only one of the best novels in the series. It is one of the best vampire novels ever written.


Al Roker
(yes, that Al Roker)
The storm of the century :
tragedy, heroism, survival, and the epic story of America's deadliest natural disaster :
the Great Gulf Hurricane of 1900

Not only does he talk about the most deadly hurricane ever to strike the U.S. He also talks about . . .
how weather is formed -- the history of Texas -- the history of the U.S. weather bureau -- the history of the Cuban weather service -- racism in 19th century America -- and American Cuban relations of the late 19th century.

One hopes he continues to write, as all his years of doing the weather on TV has apparently taught him something, and that is keep the story interesting and short.


Kamil and Elder
Great is the truth :
secrecy, scandal and quest for justice at the Horace Mann School

Or how almost 2 dozen employees of the New York City school abused its students--both boys and girls--for almost 3 decades.

A number of things came out of the books.
1st. The sheer number of people abusing the children who attended the school.
2nd. While most child abusers are, for what ever reason, white males, here we have women, Asian-Americans, Afro-Americans, as abusers.
3rd. A couple of hitherto unknown, to me, things arise from being abused.
a. Falling into doing pornography. Both video and pictorial.
b. The inability thereafter to be able to hold a job.

And a couple of oral histories from Svetlana Alexievich.
Voices from Chernobyl :
the oral history of a nuclear disaster
translator, Keith Gessen.

1986 the disaster -- 1996 oral histories collected -- 1997 published in Russia -- and 2005 translation published.


Zinky boys :
Soviet voices from the Afghanistan War
translators, Julia and Robin Whitley

1979-1989 the war -- 1990 published in Russia -- and 1992 translation published


and the mystery

M. J. Arlidge
(despite the initials, a male writer)
Pop goes the weasel
2nd in the Detective Helen Grace series
sequel to the Doll's house


Next time: a half dozen of the other--more mysteries

I made a real find at Goodwill yesterday with the following Ian Flemming Bond novels: Dr. No, From Russia With Love, The Man With the Golden Gun, Goldfinger, Thunderball, Live and Let Die, Casino Royal, Diamonds Are Forever, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, and The Spy Who Loved Me

oh yes, I'll be busy reading for a while


I'm also reading the series currently, just finished "The Spy Who Loved Me" - that was an odd one, not sure about it yet.

    ImageThe Giant Claw - Slime drop

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
