DUNBAR By Edward St. Aubyn

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 06:12:39 +0000

Generous Beth Fedyn sent me an ARC of Edward St. Aubyn’s Dunbar. Hogarth Press came up with a great marketing idea: invite writers to “retell” Shakespeare’s plays in novel form. St. Aubyn’s Dunbar is a contemporary novel where Dunbar is a billionaire and his greedy daughters seek to take over his very profitable media company. […]



THE PUNISHER [Netflix Series]

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 06:10:11 +0000

The latest MARVEL Netflix series, The Punisher, features Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal)–who uses lethal methods to fight criminals as the vigilante who calls himself “the Punisher.” This 13-episode series is a spin-off of MARVEL’s successful Netflix Daredevil series. Unlike Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, or Iron Fist–the other MARVEL Netflix superheroes–The Punisher doesn’t have any […]



WHY WE SLEEP: UNLOCKING THE POWER OF SLEEP AND DREAMS By Matthew Walker

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 06:39:10 +0000

Matthew Walker is a sleep researcher who shares his findings about sleep in Why We Sleep. Many sleep studies show sleep rejuvenates our immune system. One chapter in Why We Sleep begins: “Bad sleep, bad heart.” The connection between poor sleep and heart problems is strong. People with cancer find their disease metastasizes faster if […]



BUFFALO BILLS VS. LA CHARGERS

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 06:17:16 +0000

Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott shocked fans (and just about everyone else) by benching quarterback Tyrod Taylor and announcing rookie QB Nate Peterman would start against the LA Chargers. The Bills are 4-point underdogs. Tyrod Taylor is taking a hit, but the Bills defense has given up 34 points to the Jets and 47 points […]



JUSTICE LEAGUE

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 06:15:23 +0000

Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) is the best part of Justice League. An alien threat to Earth forces Batman/Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) to recruit more help to fight the invaders. Besides Wonder Woman, Bruce Wayne manages to recruit the Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). This is a far cry from The […]



FORGOTTEN BOOKS #450: THE BIG BOOK OF ROGUES AND VILLAINS Edited by Otto Penzler

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 06:21:06 +0000

I’m a fan of Otto Penzler’s anthologies. This latest tome, 911 pages, includes 72 short stories of every imaginable type. Penzler presents these stories in a rough chronological order. As usual, Penzler chooses some obscure stories by some even more obscure authors. I prefer the more modern stories, but almost every taste in crime fiction […]



Two Worlds and in Between: The Best of Caitlín R. Kiernan. Volume One

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 06:29:20 +0000

I’ve been reading Caitlin Kiernan’s short stories for years. This Subterranean Press collection (552 pages!) from 2011 presents Kiernan’s work in chronological order. It’s fascinating to see how a writer develops and learns her craft. I think Kiernan hit her stride in “From Cabinet 34, Drawer 6” which is a harbinger of her later, better […]



BREVILLE SMART OVEN PRO (BOV845BSS)

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 06:20:15 +0000

We’re hosting Thanksgiving again and expect from six to 10 people at our table. Patrick, Katie, Diane, me, my brother and his wife are certainties. But, we always take in a few “strays” as well. The 16-lb Plainville turkey will take up most of the room in our GE oven. Diane plans to offer both […]



A FISH CALLED WANDA [Blu-ray]

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 06:13:32 +0000

Given the current political environment and the Buffalo Bills reverting to Normal (losing), I needed some laughs. This new Blu-ray edition of A Fish Called Wanda proved to be the perfect tonic! John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline, and Michael Palin make up the excellent cast. I first saw A Fish Called Wanda back […]



THANKS, OBAMA: MY HOPEY, CHANGEY WHITE HOUSE YEARS By David Litt

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 06:08:17 +0000

David Litt’s story of going from his room at his parents’ house to working in the White House as a speech writer shows the power of persistence. Litt’s inspiring story tracks the Obama Administration, both the highs and the lows. I found Litt’s descriptions of how the Obama Administration worked fascinating reading. As twenty-somthing David […]
