I like the Hope books. They are much more character driven than the Precinct books. Imagine Ed writing the Spenser books...

Okay, just wondering if you had been able to buy ebooks. I've read on the forums that you cannot cross the country lines for an ebook purchase without an address in the area in which you are making the purchase. I just wanted to know if that had changed. Probably not.

Thanks. :)

I don't know about that. Why don't you just try it?

My question is mostly about ebooks. Can you order those?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 27, 2012 8:56:30 PM PDT
Yes, I do it all the time. I sign in the same as here and place my cc on file. I do the same with Germany as I know buy all my gifts for family through Amazon. Parcel from here were always heavily taxed.

Can you order from UK without UK address?

The 87 Precinct series is wonderful, but I have no experience with Mathew Hope series. Have you read any of it?

(I have gift cards burning a hole in my... hard drive, so I was considering this one.)

(That sounded weird.)

Was totally thrilled to see that Ian Rankin's John Rebus is coming back! Think I will have to go for a UK order in November instead of waiting for the Jan 2013 US release.
Standing in Another Man's Grave

And looks like Ann Cleeves' Shetland quartet is being expanded, she's bringing her Inspector Jimmy Perez back in "Dead Water", but according to Amazon UK not until Jan 2013.

@Alisha: Well that's good to hear that the last one may actually be showing some improvement (Sookie series)? Hmmm. "TruBlood fan fiction"...that was funny, but sadly, accurate at this point. Have you read any of her other series:
Grave Sight (Harper Connelly Mysteries, Book 1) <- there's another one, but I can't remember the name.

Hi D. Smith:
Darn it, hopefully you will get it and love it. It's actually quite nice, and seeing a representation of Barrons is awesome.

LKH started off the series in a very strong way, but like you say, it has sadly become a vehicle for just some bad porn. I have nothing against sex in books, but I don't expect that to be the central theme in an UF book! I still say you should give Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series a go; at least the first book. I think he is one of the best male UF authors around. ;)

Hi G,
I wanted to let you know I never got my Fever Moon Graphic yet first one ???? So sending another one with the box of books I ordered for july31 release date It's coming with those.So I well chat with you here when I get it.Saw you early today else where and I was just sitting in that area reading post
after post of the never ending book.Do not want the mess over here it's calm we need a stress free zone.

Looking over your post see you do not read LKH any more either really loved her first 7 or so books but after that it went down hill.That was one strong series when she first came out one of the better ones out at that time.Way over it's welcome kind of reads like a badly writen porn book yuk.
Like UF a lot and hated when a few series ended but never read any Jim Butcher books and the amount of book I read should have read aleast 1.Either people like him or they don't never could make up my mind on it. Now if we could have the next KKM book my world would be a happy place at least for a short time. :) Sorry with how this came out all over the place have know idea why did not want to redo.

about the sookie series.... again I totally aagree with you. I did read the last book but it was from my local library. I thought it was actually better than the last couple- not that that would have taken much at all. Even so though there was still more filler than actual plot. Charlaine Harris wouldn't make my list of Authors of Great Importance to the Literary World but in the past she could definately be counted on to deliver a solid saturday afternoon worth of easy entertainment. Now it seems she just writes TruBlood fan fiction.

I personally enjoy reading books in a series. I like to watch the characters grow and change. I have however come to believe that it takes a very VERY special sort of author to still have a sold series after 6-8 books.

Throne of Glass

An epic fantasy I am looking forward to. Read her novellas, and I love her style.

@Alisha: I agree about the need for some authors to take a break. I think she has some serious writing skills, and it would be a shame if she continues down this never ending, kind of carpy road that she is on.

Another author right now who seems to be running out of steam in her series is Charlene Harris/Sookie series. I used to really look forward to each new book, but the last couple have been really disappointing; I didn't buy this last book because I wanted to wait until some of the reviews came out, and boy am I glad I didn't waste my money!

I totally agree about Laurell K Hamilton's anita blake series. I haven't read her stuff in while even though I have the next few books i found myself trudging through the last 2 or 3 so Ive been putting her off.

I think sometimes an author needs to back away... try something new. There is something called beating a dead horse.

@lwd: I think it must be hard for an author who makes their living on a particular series, to end it at the RIGHT time. I have had the Rabbi series on my radar for a while, and it is nice to hear that he was wise enough to stop when it was "enough".

I think Laurel K. Hamilton has overstayed her welcome with a series that started out SO good, but deteriorated into something that really isn't worth reading anymore? It kind of makes me sad when an author with so much potential, kind of overstays their welcome?

I think one of the few UF exceptions right now is Jim Butcher, who is coming up on book #14. I think he keeps evolving, taking risks with his storyline and characters, and somehow his books remain "fresh"? I can't explain it, but some authors seem to evolve and others disintegrate?

Harry Kemelman did rather well with the Rabbi Small series. He started with 7 Friday the Rabbi Slept Late, ended with Thursday the Rabbi Walked Out (Rabbi Small Mystery), wrapping up the week (and, supposedly, the series). I think he ended up with 10, (the last three were okay, but he was pushing it, so he stopped).

Kinda respected the author for that.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 14, 2012 3:55:31 PM PDT
I think 3 or 4 books are reasonable? Very few authors can pull of more then this number. The only mystery author I can think of is Sue Grafton, who's books actually seem to improve with each offering. Fantasy authors: Terry Goodkind needs to give it up; his books are almost embarrassing at this point.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 14, 2012 3:53:32 PM PDT
That's about where I left off too, K. Hippolite. I don't know how they could be the same with a different author?
I live in fear that this is what will happen with George R. R. Martin.

I'm still waiting for Wheel of Time to wrap up. I gave up around book 8 and refuse to buy another until I hear they've closed off the plot-line

I often wish authors would give up the series trend. I read a very silly (and fun) British mystery (about 4 decades ago), Picture Miss Seeton (Black Dagger Crime Series), currently OOP. No cliffhanger, it was complete in itself. Miss Seeton became unrecognizable after the 3rd book. By the time another author took up the gauntlet after the original author died, the naive elderly spinster turned into a middle aged, brilliant sleuth, the clever detective couldn't find obvious clues that were thrown in front of him.

Sigh. I completely understand. I have been a faithful follower of quite a few mystery series, where the main character has become a superficial version of their once stellar selves.

Thanks for the rec, I think I will move the first book in the series, towards the top of MT. Everest (my TBR list). Thanks lwd. ;)

G. -

Actually, Everything Saraga writes is very good, truly imaginative. The main character in this particular series is just starting to wear a bit on my nerves.
