Library Tuesday, 8/30/2011

An odd grab bag of random stuff this week.

Robert Jackson Bennett - The Company Man

It looks like its sorta noirish. Eleven union men are killed on a subway car between one stop and the next. Cyril Hayes has to find out why.

Jonathan Kay - Among the Truthers

An exploration of conspiracy theories post 9-11. My Master's thesis was on conspiracy theories, so this is right up my alley.

E. Archer - Geek Fantasy Novel

This looked promising - young boy offered a chance to do some computer work for distant relatives finds himself trapped in some sort of fantasy game - but having read a bit of it a the library, I suspect that it takes itself far too seriously. We shall see.

David Liss - The Twelfth Enchantment

I have yet to be disappointed by a David Liss novel. This book seems to have a noble heroine, a book which may be magical, and Lord Byron.
