Dave Barry used to be the highlight of my Sunday mornings. He used to have a syndicated spot in the very back of Washington Magazine which comes along with the Sunday edition of the Washington Post.


My last and most favorite read in awhile has been Phoenix Rising: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel by Philippa Ballantine and Tee Morris. It is of the steampunk orientation, but it's incredibly funny and oh-so British.

"Evil is most assuredly afoot—and Britain’s fate rests in the hands of an alluring renegade . . . and a librarian.

These are dark days indeed in Victoria’s England. Londoners are vanishing, then reappearing, washing up as corpses on the banks of the Thames, drained of blood and bone. Yet the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences—the Crown’s clandestine organization whose bailiwick is the strange and unsettling—will not allow its agents to investigate. Fearless and exceedingly lovely Eliza D. Braun, however, with her bulletproof corset and a disturbing fondness for dynamite, refuses to let the matter rest . . . and she’s prepared to drag her timorous new partner, Wellington Books, along with her into the perilous fray.

For a malevolent brotherhood is operating in the deepening London shadows, intent upon the enslavement of all Britons. And Books and Braun—he with his encyclopedic brain and she with her remarkable devices—must get to the twisted roots of a most nefarious plot . . . or see England fall to the Phoenix!"

Read a lot of things between now and my last post in this thread, but far and away the best of them was The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. A wonderful, amazing first novel. Many thanks to SL and Nikkki for the recommendations. I can't describe it; go read some of the commercial reviews at Amazon and then just buy the damned book.

I'm reading A Game of Thrones. So very very good.


And I'm going to read The Night Circus because Steve, Nic and SL recommend it.

I finally found the first Parker book by "Richard Stark" (Donald Westlake) at another library. Title is "The Hunter", and it's what the movies "Point Blank" and "Payback" (with Mel Gibson) was based on.
