Like any serious book reader what really interests me is a 'hot' looking dust jacket or book cover. So, of course, I was taken by Brian M. Wiprud's books. This highlights two things. One is I need to figure out how to post pictures on this blog and two, I need to read his books. I have been really going through a pretty dark period in my reading. Very dark, very noiry. Hard Case Crime books. I read Duane Swierczynski's book. The Hunsicker book Still River . I need something that is going to make me laugh. I am hoping they will be along the lines of Tim Cockey's Hearse series. I have been trying to bring my 'to be read pile' under control for say the last two years... so the prospect of buying three more books does actually give me a moment for pause.....but they are soft cover so they are as good as bought.
