Book of the Week: The Alamo.

This is my week for getting back to books that I inexplicably put down and didn’t pick up again.  In this case: John Myers Myers’ The Alamo (I don’t need to explain to you what the book is about, right?).  I wonder how Mr. Myers felt about the fact that — despite the fact that he was primarily a writer of history, with a focus on the American West — he’s remembered today primarily for Silverlock.  Then again, it’s not like he didn’t write Silverlock, now is it?

And so, adieu to Sweet Silver Blues.

Silverlock is on the Kindle!

My wife – who is the most awesome wife EVER – emailed me to let me know that John Myers Myers’ Silverlock is on the Kindle.  If you’ve never heard of that book… you lucky so and so; that means that you get to look forward to reading it for the first time.  I envy you that sensation.

To give you an idea of precisely how neat this book is: when it came time to do the introduction for the 1979 edition, Poul Anderson, Larry Niven, and Jerry Pournelle were apparently so adamant about doing one that the book actually has introductions from all three.  I’ve had three copies and worn out two; and I think that I still have some Amazon gift certificate credit left, so if you’ll excuse me…
