1: Before They Were Giants: first stories published by some of the biggest names in SF today. Each story is accompanied by questions and reflections on it by the author.
2 & 3: Slayground, Deadly Edge – Richard Stark: two novels in the Parker series by the late Donald Westlake under his pseudonym. Slayground was made into a film starring Peter Coyote. As in all the other “Parker” movies, the character has a different name. Movies based on Parker novels have starred Lee Marvin, Mel Gibson, Jim Brown, Robert Duvall, Michel Constantin, and Anna Karina.
4: Slaughter of Eagles – William W. Johnstone with J.A. Johnstone: the latest western based on one of the late William Johnstone’s characters.
5: War Cry – Charles G. West: latest western by the writer.
6: Unaccustomed As I Am To Public Dying(ebook) – Larry Maddock: a collection of humorous mystery stories by the late author.
7: Crossroad Blues(ebook) – Steve Malley: a recommendation from author Charles Gramlich. Can’t wait to dive into it.
8: Quarter Share – Nathan Lowell: an SF novel recommended by Richard Robinson: It looks damn good.
9: Panic In Year Zero(soundtrack CD) – Les Baxter: a jazz score from one of my favorite old SF films. Didn’t know it was available until Richard Robinson posted on it. I’ve already ripped it to my music file so I can listen while working.
