Books, You Guys!

I read a lot of everything. Mostly fantasy and sci-fi, or speculative fiction or Slipstream or New Weird or whatever we're calling it now, some comics, some literary fiction, mysteries, la dee da. And...well. I do like a kissin' book.
Pilgrim's Wilderness: A True Story of Faith and Madness on the Alaska Frontier - Tom Kizzia This is a good one. A really fascinating look into not just the Pilgrim family, but the history and land politics of frontier Alaska. Kizzia is a thoughtful and compassionate storyteller, and makes the reader feel the plight of the Pilgrim children without ever veering into luridness or exploitation.
