What I'm reading . . .
Marshal Zeringue's interesting and eclectic blog, Writers Read, recently dropped me a note and asked what I was reading. They kindly shared my thoughts in their latest entry, here.
The two books I mentioned are, in a way, different takes on the early days of the Internet era: Mafia Boy, about a teen hacker, and The Imprefectionists, which in some ways is an ode to the passing of (one) newspaper.
Marshal also posted the entry, and some generous notes highlighting my own book, The Helios Conspiracy, at Campaign for the American Reader in this post. (You can discover some of what he likes to read here.) One thing the blogs prove - writers are a diverse bunch not only in what they write, but in what they read as well.
