    Recently started:

    The Case of the Dangerous Dowager by Erle Stanley Gardner
    < "A Perry Mason Mystery" >
    (William Morrow edition published April, 1937 /
    Pocket Book edition July, 1953 - 14th printing)

    NOTE: I'm assuming this copy use to belong to my Dad, since it was on a shelf of other old paperback books that would have been more his style of reading (and my Mom doesn't know anything about having ever owned / read it).

    By the way, the image I found on the web, but that's the way the copy I'm reading looks.

    Wreck-Gar. The role Eric Idle will always be remembered for and no mention of it.
    The Gypsies had no home. The Doors had no bass.

    Does our reality determine our fiction or does our fiction determine our reality?

    Whenever the question comes up about who some mysterious person is or who is behind something the answer will always be Frank Stallone.

    Red Harvest by Joe Schreiber. Not as good as Death Troopers which it serves as the prequel to, but still a decent read.

    Picked up the first two 13th Doctor novels, will grab the third on Tuesday. I just finished The Good Doctor. One of the better DW novels in my opinion. I can't tell if it is still NSA though...

    Paperbacks from Hell : Written by Hendricks, author of the equally good My Best Friend's exorcism. It features all these crazy try-hard Stephen King books from the 70s and 80's.

    One book it did'nt mention was IMP a 1980's horror about a feral boy locked under the house by a cruel mother . He gets out and causes all sorts of mayhem. Would anyone like a companion book of novels and their covers NOT featured in the Hendricks book?

    Now I'm re-reading the first of the Nero Wolfe series of mysteries:

    Fer-de-Lance by Rex Stout
    (orig. published 1934 / Bantam "Crime Line" reissue edition 1992)

    NOTE: The beginning of the story definitely dates itself.
    First published in 1934, it starts with Archie telling how Wolfe had instructed Fritz Brenner (Wolfe's cook) to go out and buy one bottle each of "every kind procurable" beer. This was because Wolfe had decided to give up the "bootleg beer" he had been drinking for years "if he could find a brand of the legal 3.2" beer that was suitable.
    In March of 1933, while Prohibition was still the law, the President (FDR) had signed an amendment that allowed the sale and manufacture of beer that was 3.2% (alcohol by weight) beer; it wouldn't be until December of that year that Prohibition itself would be repealed (though local jurisdictions would still be able to limit or outright ban the sale of alcohol).

    Two questions for everyone:

    What are your top five books of 2018?

    What is your favorite sci-fi novel of 2018?

    Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.--Hebrews 12:2
