Read in 2021

57) THE MISSION or How A Disciple Of Carl Sagan, An Ex-Motocross Racer, A Texas Tea Party Congressman, The World's Worst Typewriter Saleswoman, California Mountain People, And An Anonymous NASA Functionary Went To War With Mars, Survived An Insurgency At Saturn, Traded Blows With Washington And Stole A Ride On An Alabama Moon Rocket To Send A Space Robot To Jupiter In Search Of Eden At The Bottom Of An Alien Ocean Inside Of An Ice World Called Europa (A True Story) (2021)

by David W. Brown


58) THE MAN WHO LIKED SLOW TOMATOES (1993)

by K. C. Constantine




This is the end of my list of books read in 365 days.

2022 will be unconcerned with quantity.

But the urge to count will still be satisfied - by an old horror anthology composed of 365 stories. Each story is 750 words or less, flash fiction that is easily read in a spare moment. Angus Scrimm had a copy of this book and savored a story nightly. If it is good enough for Angus, it's good enough for me. A cursory glance of the contents show only one iconic contributor I recognized : pulp master Hugh B. Cave.

To be read throughout 2022:

No Noory is going great!

The longer I abstain, the more it seems like my ever listening to Noory was just a bad dream. None of it ever happened! Heh heh.

But still...
