Books I’m Reading 6

Hot Iron by Elmer Kelton deals with a troubleshooter who lands a job on a Texas ranch as its new manager, but he runs into an illegal cattle stealing operation. The author had some great description for the characters. A great read.

Dust ‘n’ Bones: Ten Ghost Stories and Fangs ‘n’ Fire: Ten Dragon Tales by Chris Mould. These two books are filled with adaptations and illustrations of haunting short stories, including The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and The Eyeless Dragon.

A Dark Dreambox of Another Kind: The poems of Alfred Starr Hamilton edited by Ben Estes and Alan Felsenthal. If you’re used to rhyming poetry, then this collection will throw you into a loop. It’s different. It’s interesting. It makes you think of poetry’s flexibility in expressing ourselves.
