Tonight I jump an a train to Philly so that tomorrow morning I can jump on train to Boston for PAXEast! For those of you out there keeping track I’m still working through my Hard-Boiled reading project. I’m somewhat relieved to announce that I have only one title left to review. Relieved not because I haven’t enjoyed the project but because the pile of science fiction and fantasy novels I want to read has been growing considerably in the meantime. So, before I head off, below you’ll find a list of all the posts related to by genre switch up:
My last read was a difficult choice but I decided to go with The Black Hand by Will Thomas. My initial impression is extremely positive and would never have expected one could set a hard-boiled novel in 19th Century. I’m hoping I can plow through it on the Amtrak ride tomorrow morning. This is a vacation I’m really looking forward as management changes at my part time job combined with potentially devastating (for libraries) New Jersey State budget cuts have left me a bit stressed. It’ll be nice to not think about all this crap for a couple of days at least.
If you’re going to be in Boston for PAXEast feel free to drop me a line via twitter or keep an eye out on lines for the bearded dude with his buried in a nook/book. I’ll try to get a post or two up while I’m away but I make no guarantees. See you all on the flip side!
