Mark Hummel's Harmonica Party - Amplified Blues Harp from Chicago to the West Coast

Larry, January 14, 2007

I havn`t seen it but I`d like to. Knowing how good a musician Mark Hummel is and how good the other harmonica players are in his shows I`d venture to say that this DVD is probably OUTSTANDING!

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

Larry, October 20, 2006

You may not care about zombies, but this isn't your typical zombie tome. Told as a series of interviews, this "oral history" of the zombie was is entertaining and erudite. Mr. Brooks cleverly works in historical references that add credibility to this history. I was very impressed by his ability to create a separate voice for each of his interviewees.

Out by Natsuo Kirino
Out

Larry, August 31, 2006

A well written, multi-layered mystery set in Tokyo. The well plotted story does a great job of bringing peripheral characters to the fore, only to push them back as new ones begin to play a central role. Very entertaining. Nominated for the Edgar Award.

Already Dead: A Novel by Charlie Huston
Already Dead: A Novel

Larry, August 31, 2006

An exciting, fast paced, and violent take on vampire lore. In modern day New York, tribes of vampires have laid claim to areas of Manhattan that they rule in secret. Though not Huston's best book still very entertaining for those that like the genre.
