Over the last couple of days, I finished reading two books.

First was Osprey Campaign #208: Petersburg 1864 – 65: The Longest Siege. I always have this feeling of dismay when I read Civil War histories; I still can't in my deepest bones believe that THIS country could have fallen so far from its ideals to have fought such a war. Same feeling with this book. Not the fault of the book; simply my prejudices at work.

Second was a book that I found surprisingly difficult to put down, The Spellman Files. It's supposed to be a mystery, and I suppose there is one in there somewhere, but what it really is, is a character study of the members of this family of PIs. It's madcap and fascinating. Set in SF. I really have to recommend it for a recreational read. I'm hunting for the first of the sequels...
