Nice!
I'm glad to hear that you are well. : )

Yeah turning up your earphones while vacuuming is pretty much the recipe for hearing loss.

Charlene, I borrowed The Hoard at mid-evening yesterday and already finished it! Great read! Thanks!

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 28, 2012 12:58:27 PM PST
It was SO hard to put down! I am very glad that you liked it! : )

Did it make you itchy? : )

It was all I could do not to make itchy jokes and puns in my review! I was just itching to do it!

HA! I just KNEW you would like it! I couldn't help but get sort of squirmy while I was reading, myself.

I liked your review. : )

Has anyone read Ryker's Pulling Teeth? Is it good? Since I'm big on collections and anthologies, I figured I would start there. I'd also like to hear if anyone has read any of the Penny Dreadnought: Omnibus! Volume 1 series.

Thanks! Much as I liked his vampire novellas, I think Ryker really stepped up his game in a big way with The Hoard. Not that it's a complex tale or amazingly deep or anything, but it's a really smooth read. I slipped into and out of it very easily because there were no bumps in the road to slow me down. Just perfect in that respect, combined with overall being fun and often quite visual. I could easily see this becoming a movie or part of an anthology show.

I've read all the Penny Dreadnoughts and they were all really good. I think I reviewed each issue, if you want to check them out. They were how I got turned on to Ryker and to James Everington, whose collection The Other Room I really enjoyed.
Ryker's vampire series rocks, but I have not read Pulling Teeth. Which is also the name of his blog. :)

Ah, I didn't know he had one. Is it an active and/or interesting one, or just one of those slap it up there and never write anything in it blogs?

Posted on Nov 28, 2012 7:16:38 PM PST
He's not posting all the time or anything but when he does it's usually about things he's working on and new releases. He's kind of funny too.

Definitely worth looking at the Penny Dreadnoughts, apart from the brilliant title!

Read the first story of Brian Hodge's "Picking the Bones." Wow! It's kinda all over the place, but the guy can really write, wherever he turns his story to at the time. Quite a few lines had a down to earth poetry in them. I'm really tempted to buy the collection, but will see if I can sample one or two more from his other collections to see if it was just a fluke.

I think I've read one novella from Hodges. Without Purpose, Without Pity (Delirium Novella Series)

I really liked it. I can tell because I still remember it and I read it about a year ago, I think. It was unique and interesting.

Marc, please report back after you sample another story or two.

Will do! May be busy today with first house chores and then watching tonight's The Walking Dead, Talking Dead, and Comic Book Men, maybe twice if they're good.

Nick Jones says:
Marc, if you can find out the TOC, check it against his other collections; I believe "Picking" is all reprints (I could be wrong). Or you could ask him on his Facebook page, if you have an account.

Good to know, Nick. Thanks. I'll see what I find.

Nick Jones says:
His crime novels, Wild Horses and Mad Dogs, are also worth reading; in fact (IMO), Mad Dogs was one of two great novels I read in 2010 (the other being Rupert Thomson's The Book of Revelation: A Novel, which is mainstream, but Thomson's mainstream is like no one else's, skewing to his own eccentric sense of narrative. He's the only author I consider having written 3 5-star novels.)
2009 was The Terror; no candidate for 2011; Scott Nicholson's As I Die Lying (now going by Kiss Me or Die, a title I dislike, and I told him so) for 2012.

I didn't even know Brian Hodge wrote crime novels!

If anyone is interested in reading Without Purpose, Without Pity, please let me know. It is lend-able.
Here is a link to my review, if anyone is interested: http://www.amazon.com/review/RHB42FXEAD0IX/ref=cm_cr_dp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B007QLX832&channel=detail-glance&nodeID=133140011&store=digital-text

Charlene,
Just Hodge, no s.

Charlene, have you ever read any Ludmilla Petrushevskaya? She has a book of short stories out called "There Once Lived a Woman Who Tried to Kill Her Neighbor's Baby." The sample isn't quite enough to finish off the first story, but boy did it get me curious. Pricey book though.

Oops, sorry! : )

Marc, no, I have never heard of her. I do love short stories though. Which is why I have like 45 collections yet to read. : )
That story sounds pretty interesting though, nice title!

Glad too see Kealan Patrick Burke getting a look in here. He's a darned fine author.
