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.
The Red House Mystery (Dover Mystery Classics) - A. A. Milne This is a brisk little country house mystery with low stakes but a pretty satisfying solution, likable characters, and plenty of humor. My ebook copy wasn't clearly labelled, so I didn't realize it was by A.A. Milne until I'd already finished it, but I wasn't surprised. It's obviously a more adult story than any of Pooh's adventures, but there's a certain wry but affectionate tone that feels very familiar. The exchanges between Milne's Holmes stand-in and his extremely game "Watson" had me chuckling from beginning to end.
