Books Read - March 2005

Here's the list of books I read this past month. The numbering is for the whole year, so I suspect that I'll reach 50 books well before the end of 2005. I'm not including extensive commentary in this post, becuase I don't have the time to write about every single book; however, I will make a few individual posts about some of these books later on. (If you have a specific request, feel free to ask.)

#12 Comic Books and Other Necessities of Life by Mark Evanier

#13 Wertham Was Right: Another Collection of POV Columns by Mark Evanier

#14 Superheroes in My Pants by Mark Evanier

(The above are three essay collections about the comic book field and Evanier's obsessions. Quite enjoyable)

#15 Robert's Rules of Writing: 101 Unconventional Lessons Every Writer Needs to Know by Robert Masello

(I gave this one five stars on an Amazon review. If you're a writer, buy it and read it.)

#16 All the Flowers Are Dying" by Lawrence Block

(First post-9/11 Matthew Scudder novel.)

#17 Write Great Fiction: Plot & Structure by James Scott Belll

#18 Confessions of a Master Jewel Thief by Bill Mason with Lee Gruenfeld

#19 The Martian Child by David Gerrold

#20 The Postman Always Rings Twice by James M. Cain

#21 Try and Stop Me by Bennett Cerf

#22 Seven Spells to Sunday by Andre Norton & Phyllis Miller

(Re-read this one in the wake of Norton's passing.)

#23 Men of Tomorrow: Geeks, Gangsters, and the Birth of the Comic Book by Gerard Jones
