Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
Mystery stories? Asimov? Why, yes! This sequel to Tales of the Black Widowers continues the conventions set up in the first book: the guest brings a mystery, Henry solves it. As with all such formulaic mysteries, the payoff is in the twist, not as much in the characters (although the regulars are delightful). [Feb. 2010]
