For fantasy, maybe something brief and brisk, such as 'The Eyes of the Wind' or 'The Ways of Wizardry.' Though 'God of Rain' wouldn't be a bad choice either—or if you particularly would like a female lead, maybe 'Arrows of Heaven.'

If we're talking more mainstream stuff, maybe the fast-paced espionage adventure 'The DIctator's Children.' Or its complete opposite, the contemporary 'relationship' novel 'Asanas.' Or just buy 'em all and decide yourself!(less)

Chaos

Well, this has been a messed up few months since I last posted anything here. I released a book during that time—or tried to. My distributor (Lulu) decided to do a total revamp of their site and process just around the time the CV struck, with the resulting chaos. Wilk, my second novel of the Polish spy/adventurer, is available 'everywhere' in print but ebook distribution is still messed up. Both Read more of this blog post »

The Barchester series turns almost Dickensian with this installment and suffers from it. Still, it's Trollope and a decent read.

Mid-life crisis, Jazz Age variety!

Sinclair Lewis's 'Dodsworth' is a relatively gentle satire that occasionally turns to preachiness. The prose is no more than serviceable and plods some. That in itself is not a big deal; it can be said of more than a
