Four and Twenty Blackbirds
by Cherie Priest

An enjoyable read that could have used something more to elevate it.

Claus: Legend of the Fat Man

An alternative take on the Father of Christmas that ultimately comes across as droll and uninteresting.

The Postman
by David Brin

A novel that is good, apocalyptic fun with a hero who just so happens to be a postman.

Book Reviews

Hallowe'en Party
by Agatha Christie

A no-nonsense mystery story that just happens to occur during Halloween. I gave it three rockets because, while it's an entertaining enough book, it could have used a bit of drama to liven it up.

Smoke Eaters
by Sean Grigsby

A very cool premise that fails in the execution step. It's an enjoyable, albeit forgettable, read.

The End of Summer: Thirteen Tales of Halloween
by J. Tonzelli

This collection of Halloween shorts demonstrates consistently good writing with characters that come to life (or death, as the case may be) in a realistic manner. This is a great read to help shift your mood into the spooky season.
