The promised bookscouting column is coming, but in the meantime, you might enjoy these items of interest.
A little of this, a little of that. Celebrity deaths, demon hounds, and amazingly, some good news in the midst of it all.
Real Life has been a little burdensome lately, so I was glad to find these things to take my mind off it for a little while.
People sent me cool books, and also I risked a couple of bucks on some oddities.
The books pile up. The to-be-read stack is getting a little high again. And the review pile is just embarrassing.
Every so often I’ll be doing a roundup like this. Bits of this and that. Not a column so much as a few column-ettes. This time it’s a couple of cool books people sent me, some scattered thoughts on The Twlight Zone and its imitators, and checking in with everyone’s favorite giant gorilla.
