Catacombs

McCaffrey, Anne
Second (and probably last) volume of the space cats series, which apparently relates to the cats in "The Tower And The Hive" series.

Catalyst

McCaffrey, Anne
Co-authored by Elizabeth Ann Scarborough. This book is about cats in space. It is OK, funny at times, perhaps even "slyly" funny. I will read the next book. But after that, I am not making any promises.

The Collapsing Empire

Scalzi, John
Book One of a series, the name of which I don't know. Some snappy repartee, several memorable characters. My immediate favorite character gets killed pretty early, so I am VERY displeased by that. I just KNOW I am not going to remember any of the story or characters by the time the next book comes out. I rate this: A Promising OK.

Fields Where They Lay

Hallinan, Timothy
Junior is "offered" a job investigating shoplifting at a decrepit mall. Pretty darn good, and it's a "Christmas" story, too.

A Blink Of The Screen

Pratchett, Terry
Collected shorter fiction. Some of it was OK, some pretty interesting, but the story titles The Sea And Little Fishes was exquisitely written, and I was very teary for a goodly portion of the story. And the "bonus" chapter, if not more so.

Leviathan Wakes

Corey, James S. A.
Book 1 of the Expanse series. The author's name is a pen name for Daniel Abraham (who co-authored Hunter's Run, listed under George R. R. Martin)and Ty Franck. This space opera is too complicated for ME to sum up.

Fuzzy Navel

Konrath, J. A.
In book five of the series we find Jack once again under fire, not only from her nemesis, but some wanna-be military types. Quite violent, also funny.

Rusty Nail

Konrath, J. A.
Book three in the Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels series, first one I've read. Pretty bloody. The story moves right along. Too many brand names mentioned. Jack doesn't seem to ever have a flashlight to hand when she needs one. Maybe she ought to checkout reddit.com/r/flashlight?

The Men Who United The States

Winchester, Simon
The trouble with this book was that every couple of pages I had to stop to look something up on the internet. Then, a few hours later, I'd get back to the book. Very slow going!

Britt-Marie Was Here

Backman, Fredrik
Britt-Marie goes to a small village for a job managing a recreational center. I'm not sure how far she got at the end, it's up to her.
