The Lost Expedition: Session Report and Review

The Lost Expedition A game by Peer Sylvester Osprey Games BGG listing. Note: The most cursory of historical research went into the writing of this fictionalized session report on the card game The Lost Expedition. My dearest Slimane, I cannot conceive of a place so different from Geneva and my beloved Algiers than the province […]

Nightmare Alley by William Lindsay Gresham
Rate this book
Clear rating
The novel’s afterlife is just as colorful, spawning two films (with Guillermo del Toro’s lushly imagined but ultimately disappointing version from last year), inspiring at least one person’s career path (Anton Szandor LaVey of the Church of Satan), i ...more

How to Do Nothing by Jenny Odell
Rate this book
Clear rating
Look at a series of William Eggleston photographs and you emerge seeing the world differently. Jenny Odell’s How to Do Nothing marks, for me, a shift in this vein. Advocating a stance of curiosity and political engagement with the local, Odell’s mono ...more

Frederick Douglass by David W. Blight
Rate this book
Clear rating
This was the book I’d been reading on and off for a couple of years—a bit of a doorstop, this one, and a challenge to read anywhere except on a comfy chair and a bright light. I picked the book up after reading, in succession, all three versions of D ...more

The Seventh by Richard Stark

I've been slowly reading the Parker novels in order of publication. Donald J. Westlake is one of my writer heroes. "The Seventh" is unlike the previous novels in the series, though. Instead of walking us through the planning of a heist--just like the ...more

Nocturnal Conspiracies by David B.
Rate this book
Clear rating
David B's Nocturnal Conspiracies is a beautifully illustrated collection of the cartoonist's dreams, but that's about it. Tough to recommend when dreams are, arguably, incoherent by nature, though (apparently) David B. remembers more oneiric details ...more

Perfidia by James Ellroy
Rate this book
Clear rating
James Ellroy’s Perfidia is both fascinating and infuriating. It’s a gift for Ellroy fans, though, because it features characters from his seven previous novels. (The dramatis personae in the appendix is 5 pages long.) But it’s the kind of ambitiously ...more

Spain in Our Hearts by Adam Hochschild
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is the kind of history I like reading: told from the perspectives of (extra)ordinary people—in this case, Americans, whether volunteer soldiers, nurses, or reporters—as seen in their letters, dispatches, and journals. But in this case it felt la ...more
