The Reading Report

I remain somewhat at loose ends as far as reading goes. I'm still not in a novel reading mood and have therefore been reading a lot of short stories and novellas. In addition to the Stephen King story mentioned below, in the last few days I've read the Doc Savage novellas The Red Spider and Mad Mesa, the Michael Moorcock Elric novella The Singing Citadel, and short stories by Ed Hoch, Keith Miles, Kim Newman, Ross Macdonald, Martin Edwards, and Lawrence Block. (More about Block later.)
I've also re-read Terry Brooks' non-fiction book, Sometimes the Magic Works, assorted comic books, and an issue of Doctor Who magazine. Apparently I still read more than most people even when I don't read what I would consider a lot.
