Book of the Week: The Silence of the Lambs.

Yes, the series got wonky, fast – but The Silence of the Lambs was itself a darn good book. Better than the one that it was a sequel to, frankly.  And it spawned a rarity: a movie that was pretty much as good as the book, without having to throw out everything except the title and the character names.  That’s not that common, really.

And so… hopefully I’ll see you soon, The New Annotated Dracula.

Book of the Week: The New Annotated Dracula.

I picked The New Annotated Dracula because it’s October, so horror seemed appropriate; and you might as well start with the classics.  In this particular case, I haven’t read it yet.  But both the promise of a fully-annotated text and a conceit that warms the cockles of my yearning-for-autumn heart conspired to make this one Book of the Week:  I look forward to its arrival on the doorstep.

And so farewell to 1635: The Eastern Front.  Grimmer than I expected.
