Have to say that after a bunch of supernatural detective stuff, been reading Criminal Macabre comics as well, it's been a nice break to read some fun and thrilling sci fi. Although, as always, I fear I read much slower than everyone else

Discovered a new thriller writer, Jeff Carlson. Totally enjoying his books. They have a near-future scif-fi bent to them that's rad.

The classic novel about Lithuanian immigrants living in Chicago at the turn of the last century.
