    Little Emily Steiner left a church meeting late one afternoon and strolled toward home along a lakeside path; a week later, her nude body was discovered, bound in blaze-orange duct tape. Called by the North Carolina authorities, forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta recognizes similarities to the gruesome work of a serial killer who has long eluded the FBI.

    Story

    This book, like all the Scarpetta book series is good. Again, it refers to past books, but tries to cover the bases, in case you haven't gone in order of the past series, but it's always best to read in order, if you can.

    Fantastic or conventional, chillingly suspenseful, or hauntingly nostalgic, each of these stories has that aura of the unexpected combined with the special ring of absolute rightness that is brilliantly, uniquely Bradbury.

    These short stories were very good, but I am glad I listened to them, in the daylight hours. So good, then Ray Bradbury is a genius when it comes to the macabre.

    This one has aliens, dogs, fires, and winter in Montana. He must like Montana, several stories are set there. It is a good story with a few twists and turns. But then Koontz is very good at that. It's a good book, try it.

    Jane Sagan: Soldier. Killer. Lover. Dreamer. In John Scalzi's best-selling Old Man's War series of science-fiction novels, we see this warrior woman as the other characters see her - silent and strong, from the outside. But now The Sagan Diary shows us Sagan from another point of view: her own, as she prepares to leave military life and join her new husband and adopted daughter on a colony world.

    Story

    Maybe some people would like this short story, but I did not. It was sort of narrated in the 3rd person/1st person. Very different and not one of John Scalzi's better short stories. The narrator was sort of stilted and read choppy. Maybe that is the way the story was supposed to be read, but just did not flow for me.

    Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

    I really enjoyed this book. I like Harlan Coben in his series, but this was the first non-series book I have listened to. It was great. I never knew what would happen next. As soon as I thought I had it figured, there would be another twist and turn. So good, you have got to read it.

    There once was a killer who knew the night, its secrets and rhythms. How to hide within its shadows. When to hunt. He roamed from town to town, city to city, choosing his prey for their beauty and innocence. His cruelties were infinite, his humanity long since forfeit. But still... he had not yet discovered how to make his special mark among monsters, how to come fully alive as Death. This is the story of how he learned those things, and of what we might do to ensure that he does not visit us.

    Story

    This short story continues on a story from a novel. It was an interesting take on how the author continues on a story from another story. Enlarges a minor character from a novel to a main character in a short story. I always wondered what happened to the kid who started Blackwell into another killing spree from single women to families, unwittingly, of course.

    In John Scalzi's re-imagining of H. Beam Piper's 1962 sci-fi classic Little Fuzzy, written with the full cooperation of the Piper Estate, Jack Holloway works alone for reasons he doesnt care to talk about. Hundreds of miles from ZaraCorps headquarters on planet, 178 light-years from the corporations headquarters on Earth, Jack is content as an independent contractor, prospecting and surveying at his own pace. As for his past, thats not up for discussion.

    Scalzi wrote another good book. I laughed, cried, got mad at idiot characters and just had a good time listening to this book. I enjoy all the Scalzi books I have listened to. he's a great story teller. Wil Wheaton did a good job of narrating also, He and John Scalzi were a good pair of readers in this book.

    This stand-alone work is widely regarded as Asimov's best science fiction novel. Andrew Harlan is an Eternal, a member of the elite of the future. One of the few who live in Eternity, a location outside of place and time, Harlan's job is to create carefully controlled and enacted Reality Changes. These Changes are small, exactingly calculated shifts in the course of history, made for the benefit of humankind. Though each Change has been made for the greater good, there are also always costs....
