However. That's that sorted.
Kij Johnson, The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe
-- as I say, if people feel moved to write correctional Lovecraft, fine, but even second-hand Lovecraft leaves me in a bad mood.
Waggoner, Unnatural Magic
-- so far so good. Would read better in paper
Ellery Queen, Calamity Town
-- I think fictional Ellery has laid hold of the wrong end of the stick. Shall find out in 150 pages if he does
The Metaphysical Poets
-- desultory reading
Might go back to The Woman in White, might not.
