Earlier this week, I finished reading another Mike Resnick book, though not so much SF as it might have been. It's one of his Lucifer Jones series about a con man from Moline, IL, in the early 20th Century; a parody and comedy work of lesser value/interest. Amusing, but not classic. It's called Hazards: The Chronicles of Lucifer Jones 1934 -1938. In prior books, he's been thrown off of the continents of North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa; in this one he has adventures in South America.
