Having read "Eve of Man", i thought it quite a enjoyable. It's the first part of a trilogy so I may seek out the sequel.

Earl Dumarest! I read a few of the stories decades ago (unfortunately as heavily abrigded German translations) but now I found the whole saga in form of e-books. While most of the stuff I devoured in my teenage days seems unreadable to me now, Dumarest is still much fun. Some years ago there were rumours of an Earl Dumarest TV series – now, that would have been awesome!

Funnily enough, I also stumbled on a very bad review of the first Dumarest novel. The reviewer complained that the author does not share the positive outlook of Roddenberry! Well, if that is the measure of all things .... I gues the reviewer won't like B7, too. Grin

Spent yesterday afternoon reading ‘Death Has Deep Roots’ by Michael Gilbert. Published in the British Library Crime Classics series. Some better than others, but this was one of the good ones. Good enough that I was up at 5:30 this morning to write the work report I was supposed to be doing when I was reading, but, you know, priorities...

I'm going to give that a try. I like the series but, as you say, it's a bit hit and miss. But good as they can be, it sounds to me like you were putting off the evil moment... been there, put off doing what I should be doing...we are bad...

Procrastinate, me? Don’t know what you mean!
I quite like John Bude’s books in that series too. But often I buy the short story collections on the grounds that then at least part of the book should be worth reading, even if it isn’t all.

Washington Black by Esi Edugyan for my reading group. Starting very well.
Finished...um... a book of 2 halves. 1st is brilliant. 2nd...baffling. No idea what the author had in mind but it didn't work for the last half. Sad, really. Could have been so good.

"How to be Happy" by Eva Woods. It's all about a woman with a Brain Tumour who's been told she's got 90 days to live. So she goes hell for leather to make the most of her remaining time.

'Y is for Yesterday' by Sue Grafton. I'm a great fan of her alphabet series, and got all the books from A-U, at which point I ran out of both money and shelf space. I still need to catch up with V, W and X, but in the meantime I've borrowed 'Y' from the library. It's her last book; sadly she died before she could write 'Z is for Zero'.

Dead?!! I missed that. Oh dear, oh dear. I know what happens when the writer of a series with a clearly laid out end dies...someone else takes up the pen and it goes on for a lot longer than intended. They may invent new letters of the alphabet! We were only joking at the half way point that she would pop her clogs before the end!

Having found it on a charity book stall for a quid last week, I've been tearing through 'I Am Spock' by Leonard Nimoy. He tends to glaze over or ignore the, now very well known, problems and rivalries on the set of Star Trek and is interestingly frank about never quite getting along with Gene Roddenberry and his sense of humour, but Nimoy comes across as a thoughtful, gentle man always looking for a challenge. There's some great stories of William Shatner's increasingly daring pranks involving Nimoy's bicycle, as well one of getting his secretary to play possum in a gambit to get her a better office.

He also opens each chapter or takes a break between annecdotes to 'talk' with Spock, reflecting on events or his feelings in certain matters, which may appear a bit hokey but I rather enjoyed.

I did learn at least one bit of Star Trek trivia I'd never heard, namely that Leonard Nimoy had pushed for Edward James Olmos to play Commander Kruge in The Search for Spock. He'd have made a fantastic Klingon.

'The Vinyl Detective: Written in Dead Wax' by Andrew Cartmel - really inventive, the detective (we never learn his name) is a collector of rare vinyls and is hired to find a particular record - only to find a deeper mystery. Engaging, well-paced and great characters, I got through it in a couple of days (fast for me) and I'm off to find the sequel. Great reading!
