1: The Nasty Gnomes – Robert Reginald: the author’s sequel to his THE PHANTOM’S PHANTOM. The first new stories based on the pulp character, third longest run, I believe after Doc Savage and The Shadow.
2: Sherlock Holmes and The Giant Rat of Sumatra – Paul D. Gilbert: this is about the third or fourth pasitche novel with this title I own. Never mind the shorter length works.
3: Terminator Salvation: Trial By Fire – Timothy Zahn: original direct sequel to the film.
4: The Family Jensen: Helltown Massacre – William W. Johnstone with J. A. Johnstone; second in the western series involving three Johnstone characters. Smoke Jensen, Preacher, and Matt Jensen.
5: Strongheart- Don Bendell: new author for me. I liked the premise. A man of two worlds, both Sioux and white, Strongheart is a man who promised his dying mother to use his weapons, father’s Bowie knife and stepfather’s Colt .45 with honor and respect.
6, 7: Longarm and The Scarlet Rider, Longarm and The Bloody Relic – Tabor Evans: Two westerns by James Reasoner: enough said.
8: Smoky Valley – Donald Hamilton: an early western by the author of the Matt Helm series.
9: Jake Ransom and The Howling Sphinx- James Rollins: the second novel in the young adult series by one of my favorite thriller writers.
10: The Resisters(ARC)- Eric Nylund: first in a new series for younger readers.
11: Killer Move(ARC)- Michael Marshall: a new thriller from a longtime favorite.
12: The Two-Shoot Gun – Donald Hamilton: another early western from Mr. Hamilton.
