Once again, some random bits and pieces that aren’t worth a column in and of themselves. Mostly stuff I stumbled across that provoked a memory, humorous things people sent me, and my latest podcast appearance.
In which I find things I’d forgotten about or at best half-remembered; books, comics, and my first-ever pulp magazine.
Sometimes there just isn’t a column’s worth of things to say about anything. Sometimes there’s just a paragraph or two. So here are several of those, hooked together to make a column.
With the car out of commission for a week, I got a chance to catch up on some reading during my lengthy bus commute.
Cool stuff that’s crossed my path the last few weeks, in no particular order, including: the latest from Hard Case Crime, a show I despised that’s been rebooted into something I rather like, and a guy who’s not a number.
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.
