The crazy little sister you always wanted.

Wendig has a knack for combining words that would sound ridiculous coming from anyone else and turning them into poignant comedy or just plain comedy. keep 'em coming Chuck.

No idea what you are smoking/drinking when you write but you found a magic combination no one else has.

Miriam Black Just Can't Catch a Break

After a lukewarm response to Blackbirds (Miriam Black 1), I decided to come back for Mockingbird a couple months later. Since then, I've gotten another Miriam Black novel every month and eagerly await her upcoming finale.

No spoilers: like Books 3 and 4, Miriam's past keeps coming back to haunt her. Wendig's sly method of recalling past characters that seemed down for the count really boosts the continuity of this series. Add in the building supernatural nature of Miriam's ablities, and you've got this thrill ride that continues to surprise. Wendig even subtly leverages the rebirth from book 4 to bring back a character from book 1. Now that is storytelling I can get behind.
