I tend to read a lot of books and oftentimes the years kind of run together. Fortunately, Goodreads, where I review all my reads these days, keeps the records that I don’t have handy myself. Here are some of my favorite reads for 2015. There’s no particular order here. And it’s not comprehensive. These are just some of the books that have stayed with me. I’ve included links to Amazon here but if you want to see my complete reviews, they are all on Goodreads.
Miles to Lost Dog Creek, by Ron Scheer: We lost Ron this year. Wish he were still around to write more fine westerns like this.
Wanderings on Darker Shores, by Cora Pop: A really delightful collection of short stories and poetry in the darker vein.
Uncle Tom’s Children, by Richard Wright: A thought provoking set of stories.
A Dog’s Life, by Ann M. Martin: I’ve always been a sucker for animal stories.
Resonance: Dark and Light, by Bruce Boston: Great speculative poetry collection. A big influence on some of the poetry I’ve been trying to write lately.
Prodigal, by Steve Malley: Gotta have a little ass kicking in one’s reading year.
Herokia 1: Dragon Eaters, by Janet Morris (Contributor and editor): A collection of dragon stories, of all different kinds. Good stuff.
Web of Gunsmoke, by Will Hickok: Another great western tale.
