Chimera by Rob Thurman

Chimera by Rob Thurman


By Rob Thurman 

I love series, so when I happened to pick up Rob Thurman’s Nightlife, first in the Cal Leandros series, I hit the jackpot. Cal’s series was fantastic (more about it next week), but as usual it came to an end (until the next one gets published).

Looking for another Rob Thurman book, I decided to try Chimera, first of a new series. Don't really understand why this one was in the Sci-Fi section- should be over hanging out with Dean Koontz or Wilson's Repairman Jack. Rob Thurman's Cal series is usually found in Sci-Fi, though, so maybe someone thought all Rob's books are Sci-Fi! It reminded me so much of several books by Dean Koontz - two of his, especially - From the Corner of His Eye & One Door Away From Heaven.   

Reading Lewis Grizzard at Lynn Haven

Reading Lewis Grizzard at Lynn Haven

Tonight is the night for the book club at Lynn Haven just outside Bradley.

We started our book club about a month ago & all of us are having a great time meeting on Tuesday evenings.

My only problem is finding the perfect story to read! Tonight we're reading two of Lewis Grizzard's short stories - "Good Men of God" and "Karma Broke It".  

The group at LH has welcomed any subject I've chosen, so that makes it easy for me. If you have any suggestions for short stories they might enjoy, please comment on the blog & share the info.

We read The Rental Car Bank Robbers & a couple of more from The 107 Story, published by Jones County History & Heritage - this book has some great history of Gray & JC.
