Those of you who read my book reviews know that many of them are written for the magazine Bewildering Stories. Recently, I read Gary Inbinder's new mystery The Man Upon the Stair. In the process of writing the review, I had a very fascinating conversation with the managing editor of Bewildering, Don Webb, who had great insight on the time period in which the book is set. In the course of our discussion, we decided to do a conversation-style joint book review, which was published today. You can read the full review here.
Overall, I thought it was a very fun and fascinating book, with an amazing level of detail about late nineteenth-century France. The characters are interesting, and the writing style was compelling. I got caught up in the mystery and couldn't stop turning the page in search of the next piece of the puzzle.
Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did!
I read a lot - depending on my writing schedule, I can usually read about a book a day. Some of the books are fantastic and I would love to recommend to everyone - some, not so much. Either way, I thought I would share a few thoughts on what I'm reading at the moment.
