May Reading List

As usual I read a lot of stuff last month but a few really stand out.

Smooth Talking Stranger, copyright 2009, by Lisa Kleypas. I have to admit that this book hit all of my romance cookies. And I can’t say another thing about it because I don’t want to spoil it for you. This is one I’ll reread again because it was so satisfying.

The Big Sleep, copyright 1939, by Raymond Chandler. I was familiar with Chandler’s work because of Bogart playing his famous private eye, Philip Marlowe, in the film of the same name, but I had never bothered to actually read one of his books. I’m so glad I picked this up. I loved the story, loved the language/slang, loved the slow reveal of the mystery. I’ll be reading more of Chandler’s work now that I know how much I enjoy it.

Raw and Red Hot by Jonathan Shaw Harvard Magazine May/June 2019 A very interesting piece on how science is beginning to link inflammation with almost every chronic disease known.

The Lost Princess Man by John Barnes, Galactic Empires, copyright 2017, anthology edited by Neil Clarke. Usually I like maybe half of the stories in an anthology. Mr. Clarke did a fabulous job putting Galactic Empires together. I enjoyed most of the stories in it.

Looking Through Lace by Ruth Nestvold, Galactic Empires, copyright 2017,  anthology edited by Neil Clarke. Another great story from this anthology. I liked so many that I’m not going to list anymore titles. I read the stories in between books last month and was sorry to finish it. Pick up this anthology if you enjoy space opera. You won’t be disappointed.

Spring Has Sprung–Sort Of

This is a Spring Beauty, a sweet and delicate ephemeral found in the local woods. (Photo copyright Gunsmith Photo.)

Ephemeral flowers are quick to come and go. They show up when the ground has warmed but the leaves on the trees are not yet out so they get to soak up the sunshine before the woods get shady. We have several varieties and I look forward to them every year. When they arrive I know winter’s truly Read More
