The History of Love by Alison Krauss, book 96, a recommendation from [livejournal.com profile] ascikitty, I think. I liked it, even though I didn't understand it. The format was a little hard to follow. The ending was... good, but very confusing. I give it three stars.

The Last Hot Time by John M. Ford, book 97. Bordertown meets Mob Chicago. Wow, that was fun. :) I loved the hat-tipping to the folks who created Bordertown in the first place. This one, I suspect I'll have a hope of understanding better the second time I read it, and there will definitely be a second time. Four stars. I hope he writes more!

Necessary Evil by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, book 98. Their most recent holiday chapbook, with two stories. I liked the first all right, and the title story bunches and bunches. Four stars.

Hydrophibian by Michael Manning, book 99. I didn't not understand it, it was just... a little silly. I loved the artwork though. I'd like to read the first book, Spider Garden, I think that would be... more to my taste.

Books I have in progress right now:

Arch by David Craig and Andy Goldsworthy
Tribe of Tiger by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas
Beauty's Punishment by Anne Rice writing as...
A Place of my Own by Michael Pollan
Mothering the New Mother by Sally Placksin

I'd like to finish the first two today, just 'cause. The others are going more slowly.

I think I recommended The History of Love. I also found the ending a little hard to understand, but I think rereading it might help, so I'm hoping to do that sometime.

Manning is one of the few porn artists I -really- like. I love that he can take such extreme concepts and make them non-squicky (at least to me) by portraying them so surreally. His images just exude sex to me. His work was the only thing I was hoping to score in the Grand O! closing sale, but I was too late. I will get them soon, though.
