After spying Anderson’s Tiger Lily on a library cart, I plucked it off the shelf and read through the first few pages. If not for the fact that I was deep in last year’s reading drought at the time, and knew the likelihood of finishing it was slim, I would have brought it home with me that day. Since then I’ve gone back and forth, wondering if I should borrow or buy it. Obviously a decision was made, and the assist goes to Angie, whose review made holding out any longer an impossibility.
And while it’s a bit premature to plan for Carl‘s RIP challenge, I have to admit the thought of waiting till then to read Steve Rasnic Tem’s Deadfall Hotel ran through my mind. I saw the cover, made the obvious Edward Gorey comparison, and owning it wasn’t a question. As it happens, the story sounds interesting, and the bit I test read gives me hope that the whole of it will be enjoyable.
