Weird Heroes: Vol 1

edited by Byron Preiss

Back in the seventies, Byron Preiss tried to recapture the magic of the pulp magazines of the thirties, commissioning authors and artists to create new characters and tales for the "modern" day. Reading it in the twenty-teens, it comes across as somewhat nostalgic. The only story that really grabbed me was the one featuring Archie Goodwin's character Adam Stalker. As for the rest, well, it would be nice to have in a waiting room. Otherwise, I could do without.

Dead Beat

by Jim Butcher

An enjoyable read, but I've waited so long to write this review that I can't think of anything to say. Oh, yeah, I do recall that the absence of supporting character Karrin Murphy was keenly felt. But don't let that stop you from checking it out.
