Michael's Book Babble

I'm an indie author and a scribbler of inane babble. I talk about books I've read/liked. Or at least, that's the plan.


Most of the reviews will be considered "mini-reviews." Usually, it's mostly my reaction to what I've been reading. There are people who are far better at doing full and helpful reviews. But I still have fun doing them, and hope you enjoy them!

Stone Mattress: Nine Tales - Margaret Atwood

Review coming soon. The short version of it is this is right now the best book of 2014 I've read, and it's going to be damned hard to top it. I have my favorite stories of the bunch, but there wasn't a single stinker. Not one weak story.


Already one of my new favorite short story collections. I'll have to get it when the paperback comes out, or otherwise I might break down and just grab the hardcover. It's that good.
