Dip it in holy water?
Soaking it would be more like it. At around six years old, my phone is an antique in cell phone years.
I’m not reading it, but I did
I’m watching it on Amazon Prime
And it translates well, IMHO
Read the book first though
Which is highly recommended
Come on...Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett!!
They made a show on it, it’s gotta be good.
I'm debating starting The Mercy Seat by Rilla Askew. I like westerns well enough, but this one might have too much religion for my taste.
Rila Askew loves imagery; I wonder if she also writes poetry. The Mercy Seat was disappointing, mostly because Askew never makes the reader really care about any of the characters. The surprise ending probably didn't surprise anyone. It does dangle the possibility of a sequel (which I haven't checked for, and won't).
The Tenderness of Wolves, by Stef Penney.
Yet another author who introduces too many character and subplots, and then ends the book without wrapping up the loose ends. Are publishers scared to tell authors to write a better ending?
The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty,
published by Barnes & Noble.
This collection doesn't include Welty's novels, just her short stories. I've just started, still reading some of her early works, it should be interesting to follow how her writing changes over the years.
I just finished "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross. I'm starting to re-read "Old Man's War" by John Scalzi.
Salvation by Peter F. Hamilton
Essential Wicca, by Paul Tuitean and Estelle Daniels.
Montana Chillers: 13 True Tales of Ghosts and Hauntings by Ellen Baumler
Finished the Montana Chillers. Just started The New Bedside Playboy, a collection of fiction, satire, cartoons and interviews from 50 years of Playboy.
