book log — September 2009

Well, I was going to get my book log for the month done on time for once, and then I got home on Thursday night and found that the network had crashed. Joy…

Anyway, here’s the list of books I read (or in one case listened to) in September. I’ve reviewed one already, others may or may not follow depending on whether I get time while I can still remember them in enough detail.

James Coltrane — Talon
1978 technothriller, reviewed 27 September

Peter Anghelides — Another Life
First of the Torchwood tie-in novels. As with the others I’ve read, enjoyable tie-in that uses the features of the Torchwood universe to good effect.

Brian Minchin — The Sin Eaters — read by Gareth David-LLoyd
Torchwood audiobook, one of the ones published only as an audiobook and not in print. This is the first and so far only one read by GDL, which is why I bought it — I’d heard a sample of GDL reading Lovecraft and thought he was a good reader. This is a good tie-in story, and GDL reads very well. Recommended if you’re a fan of his.

WJ Burley — Wycliffe and the Pea-Green Boat
One in the long running police procedural series. This is one of the ones where a crime from the past leads to a crime in the present, it’s fairly clear to the reader what the main thread is, and the fun is in watching Wycliffe work it out and seeing the side-stories unfold.

I’ve probably forgotten something, but I’m away from home and don’t have the stack to hand to check. There may be additions later.

ETA: The one I’d forgotten was Alan Garner’s Red Shift.
