    I finally got around to writing up my review of the Christmas-themed anthology Christmas Scarf Murder. It features stories by Carlene O'Connor, Maddie Day and Peggy Ehrhart. It is due out September 27th but I got an advance copy of it from author Maddie Day. You can check out my review of the book via this Goodreads.com link.

    An excellent look at the involvement of the U.S. in Afghanistan in the last few years particularly since the Obama administration took over in 2009.

    I finished MIDDLEMARCH last week and I was very proud of myself. Back in the 1980s, George Eliot's THE MILL ON THE FLOSS was on the reading list for a university course and I struggled. In fact, I never read the whole thing, just skimmed it, and had to fake it when we discussed the novel in class. I've had MIDDLEMARCH on my bookshelf for a good thirty years and always feared cracking it open. But during the pandemic I've gotten around to reading books I've had for a long time and never read, so I thought I'd give MIDDLEMARCH a go. It was tough--as I wrote to a friend, you could time an egg on how long it takes to get from the beginning of a sentence to the end--but once I got into it, I read it fairly quickly (for someone of my slow reading speed).

    I didn't like how a few of the characters ended up. She does that thing in the finale where she tells you what happened to them later in life--and I don't think the novel needed that. Once a writer has told their story, they need to get out and let readers imagine for themselves where the characters could go from there.
    Figure it out. 🍁

    The only Eliot I have read is Adam Bede, which I would recommend (though she does that thing you don't like at the end )

    Looks like that was the first of the Continental Op stories to be published (in the October 1, 1923 issue of Black Mask).
