Saturday Reading Material

I’m out and about again today, so no more from me today here. I know, it’s so unfair. But to keep you occupied all day long, allow me to point you in the direction of “Bone Shop,” a short novel by T.A. Pratt, (who in his other incarnation is the Hugo Award-winning author Tim Pratt) featuring his magic-wielding heroine Marla Mason in an early adventure, which is to say it’s a prequel story, which means you do not need to have read previous works in the series. It’s fun, fast and it’s free to read — but if you like it, T.A. Pratt is accepting donations for the work. So if you read it and like it, which I expect you might, think of sending some love (and a few bucks) in the direction of the author.

Having thus pointed you in the direction of a full day of reading pleasure, I now tip my hat in your direction and bid you adieu for the day.

Damn you, Scalzi!

I’ve kind of gotten used to you adding a book a week or so to my “buy it soon” queue.

But this adding a whole series thing had better not get to be a habit.

I’m only midway through chapter 7 of Bone Shop and am enjoying it a great deal … now I’m going to have to find the rest of the Marla books, and quite likely an assortment of the rest of Tim’s books as well.

I may never get caught up … not that this is a bad thing.

Ooo, new TA Pratt story! GOOD stuff – especially if you like Butcher, Garrison, or Richardson.

Yum, thanks!
(not that I don’t have anything to read considering I own/run a bookstore)

That Bone Shop thing is pretty good. Can’t wait to finish it. And to think I had never before heard of Marla Mason or Mr Pratt (by either name).

Thank you for the link. ‘Twas the equivalent of a formal introduction, as I had not previously read any of Pratt’s work, nor much urban fiction in general… but that may be about to change. I hope donations keep rolling in as others discover his fine work.
