Two more excellent books

by Steve Hamilton, Winter of the Wolf Moon and The Hunting Wind. I really liked both of them, but the character stuff is more appealing in the first one and the plotting's better in the second, it's got lots of good noirish twists. These books are charming in various ways, I like the Upper Peninsula settings and the baseball backstories (I don't care about baseball but somehow it leads to a lot of good writing). Great first-person narration. More tomorrow...

  1. I must ask, are you originally from Russell, KS. If so let me know, pardoning the simple rhyme, which so annoys me.

  2. Nope, grew up in Philadelphia, cursed with an extremely common name.
