Ever since I ran out of Terry Pratchett books, I've been looking for a new humor writer with that particular twisted look at life that can make me laugh. I found it in Christopher Moore'sThe Stupidest Angel. I love Christmas, but sometimes it can have a little too much saccharine gooeyness, especially near the end. This book is the proverbial cold, soft slap of anti-reality that will make you see the holidays in a whole new light.
The full review of the book can be read at Bewildering Stories magazine, located over here. I'm always thrilled to discover a new humor writer with a number of publications. I can't wait to get my hands on more of Moore's books!
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.
