The terror, which would not end for another twenty-eight years—if it ever did end—began, so far as I know or can tell, with a boat made from a sheet of newspaper floating down a gutter swollen with rain.
I’m not a fan of King’s politics or the hateful things that he has said, but I enjoy his stories.
Romantic comedies are not my thing, but I wanted to try something new for the Christmas holiday. I thought Mooseletoe was a fun read. The mystical magical matchmaking moose was a nice touch. There is a twist to the story that I felt was pretty weak. All in all, it was enjoyable.
Merry Christmas … y’all.
Alaska’s matchmaking moose, Bullwinkle, has his sights set on a most unlikely pair. Holly Noelle Snow loves Christmas so much she could be one of Santa’s elves, and Reese Sutton might as well be Scrooge. But there is no way BW will allow these two to ruin his perfect track record. Even if he has to bind them together with Christmas lights.
Police Chief Reese Sutton is haunted by his Christmas past, and he’s determined not to fall for Holly, the sexy shop owner of Mooseletoe, who promises to be as naughty as she is nice.
While Sutton’s kisses burn Holly up, his bah humbug attitude leaves her cold, resurrecting her abandonment issues that she believed had been laid to rest.
It will take a Christmas miracle, or one very persistent moose, for these two opposites to risk falling in love with each other.
The next Kindle, the Oasis (http://amzn.to/2xBpYPg), is allegedly waterproof. I suppose it would be perfect for those people who want to read while bathing. I enjoyed my Kindle until it died shortly after the warranty had expired. Amazon was very helpful — they suggested that I buy a new one.

The Watson Letters Volume 3: Curse of the Baskervilles
by Colin Garrow
Intrepid investigators Holmes and Watson continue their fight against crime in a not quite Post-Victorian, steampunk parallel universe.
In three more adventures, the intrepid duo tackle a ghostly locomotive, journey to Dartmoor in search of a gigantic hound, and team up with bloodthirsty psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter in the hunt for a murderer. Adult humour throughout.
Curse of the Baskervilles is book #3 in this Victorian comedy adventure series.
If you love historical mysteries, buy something else instead, but if you’re into fart-gags and innuendo this’ll be right up your Victorian street. Download your copy or buy the paperback version of The Watson Letters Volume 3: Curse of the Baskervilles now
Timothy Black ( Author of Gearteeth link ) has been kind enough to send me a copy of “Judgment of Blood”.

A brilliant and heroic Confederate general lies on his deathbed, mortally wounded.
A young man with a special talent: his tears can bind machines to the human body.
A doctor whose career hinges on saving the general’s life.
A nurse with devious plans of her own.
And a ruthless officer whose blind ambition can make his the most powerful man in the country–and destroy all of their lives.
So begins the first episode of Boy Mercury, An Antebellum Adventure. Set in an alternate history where Stonewall Jackson survives and the South wins the Battle of Gettysburg, Boy Mercury is the rollicking adventures of Amboy “Boy” Babbage and the Resistance–led by an enchanting spy, a fiery aeronautrix, and a charismatic leader willing sacrifice anything–as they rise against the mechanized forces of the New Confederacy and its cyborg general, Stonewall Jackson, in a battle not only for their lives, but the freedom of all people.
On Basilisk Station
by David Weber
As usual, Amazon can change the price at any moment so take some time to check that the price is still $0.00 before making your purchase.
Having made him look a fool, she’s been exiled to Basilisk Station in disgrace and set up for ruin by a superior who hates her.
Her demoralized crew blames her for their ship’s humiliating posting to an out-of-the-way picket station.
The aborigines of the system’s only habitable planet are smoking homicide-inducing hallucinogens.
Parliament isn’t sure it wants to keep the place; the major local industry is smuggling; the merchant cartels want her head; the star-conquering, so-called “Republic” of Haven is Up To Something; and Honor Harrington has a single, over-age light cruiser with an armament that doesn’t work to police the entire star system.
But the people out to get her have made one mistake. They’ve made her mad.

If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful.
