Great to see a couple of other Winslow fans on here.

I started on it last night, so far so good.

Here's a short Rolling Stone interview that got posted yesterday, in case you are interested.

one of my favorite writers I discover years ago with California Fire and Life . . . been spacing out all his books since then, still haven't read Savages or Power of the Dog.

love Frankie Machine.

Blood Meridian is a tough read, but so worth it. Amazing piece of literature.

Wind-Up Bird is the most satisfying of the Murtakami I've read. The typical (? I found anyway with HM) loose ends actually enhance the overall effect, or at least don't matter so much given its scope... and interwoven groovy weirdness.
just a foil for me today, thanks

Nice! I originally read the Farseer Assassin series (Assassin's Apprentice, Royal Assassin and Assassin's Quest) back when the 2nd book was release (1996) and waited for the 3rd. With the amount of angst that she does, I decided to wait on her other books. So glad that the Fitz series is now done, so I picked these up and get to enjoy some great writing!

Savages & Power of the Dog are both great, especially Power of the Dog. Stoked that he is now writing a 3rd book in that series.
