What I've Read
Black Projects White Knights
by Kage Baker
Short story collection in the The Company 'verse. I've had Kage on the back burner while I work on my Martha Wells stack, but I think it's time to swap out again. This was a really fun collection of stories from people I have and haven't met beofere and it gives come cool glimpses of the bigger picture in some stories while others are just fun essays in being or knowing an immortal cyborg with knowledge of the future.( LibraryThing Tag Cloud )There Goes the Neighborhood:Ten Building People Loved to Hate
by Susan Goldman Rubin
Good pictures, good selection of buildings and opinions, not a treasure, but not half bad.( LibraryThing Tag Cloud )Bootleg: Murder Moonshine, and the Lawless Years of Prohibition
by Karen Blumenthal
I feel SO BETRAYED by how much of this book was about the temperance movement and how little was about exciting criminal action. LIES. FALSE ADVERTISING. BAIT AND SWITCH. Buuut the narratives about al Capone and the little kid who helped with his parents' speakeasy et al. were pretty snazzy. Good job making stories about everything. Stories are memorable. (Totally was having 'how can I apply this to steve and bucky?' thoughts the whole book.)( LibraryThing Tag Cloud )How They Croaked:The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous
by Georgia Bragg, Illustrated by Kevin O'Malley
Grisly, gore-y and disturbing, just as advertised! Good storytelling, fun facts.( LibraryThing Tag Cloud )Janis Joplin: Rise up Singing
by Ann Angel
Super lovely, sad ending <3( LibraryThing Tag Cloud )Temple Grandin: How The Girl Who Loved Cows Embraced Autism and Changed the World
