Linda's Top 5 Reads for 2013
Why? Because sometimes the only that works is a good old western and Gunsmoke isn't on. Touted as 'a new kind of western hero,' let me tell you, Edge is definitely an anti-hero. I was struck by the fact that the cover had a seal on it that claimed this was the first book of 'a violent new series.' Not sure such a thing would be part of the advertising campaign nowadays. It was originally printed in 1972.
4.) SHATNER RULES William Shatner (with Chris Regan)
Why? Because of little things like:
Both Charleton Heston and William Shatner served as Bacchus King at Mardi Gras. Only one of them had the courage to go pantsless.
Chapter 24: RULE:
Settle for Second Billing Only If the Top-Billed Act Can Beat You Up
Why? a.) I'm a big fan of ANCIENT ALIENS. b.) I was truly saddened by Philip's untimely death. c.) This kind of information makes my creative wheels crank!
2.) THE FIRE IN FICTION Donald Maass
Why? a.) He's my agent. b.) This book is amazing.
1.) SEVEN FORGES James A. Moore
Why? a.) He's a Word-Whore. b.) It's be the only fiction that found my hands AND was good enough that I actually finished it in a matter of a few days, which is pretty amazing for me. That says A LOT.
