    That first sentence reads like an entry to the Bulwer Lytton contest held annually. :vbwink:

    EDIT: Just to be clear, I am not criticizing your post, Rick, but I am suggesting the author needs to find an editor (or writer's group) as I don't think they are doing it as a tongue-in-cheek shtick.

    while I am a verified purchaser, I haven't read Blackquest 40 yet. But between the rave reviews from "normal" people, and the
    glowing editorial reviews I thought I'd share. Not so obtw, currently free, too:

    I'm excited to be getting Alan Furst's newest from the library: 'Under Occupation.' If you're into historical fiction and espionage, it doesn't get much better than Alan Furst.

    I'm reading the new Furst now. It's good, but his later books are less substantial than the first half of his canon. He seems a bit more on 'autopilot' now. My favorite is still the first one I read (the 2nd in the series) 'Dark Star.' I Googled it the other day and it turns out that George R.R. Martin wrote a blog post about it back in 2006 (I read around 1994 or so).
