Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

I've dabbled in reading urban fantasy before, most notably Jim Butcher's Dresden series, which I like very much. Somewhere I'd heard about Suzanne Johnson's books which have some similarities to the Dresden stuff, but instead of being set in Chicago, they are in New Orleans, and post-Katrina the gates into the Beyond were ripped open. So I recently finished reading Royal Street and found it quite enjoyable. If you like the genre, give this one a try!

I'd heard good things about a documentary called Deli Man, and it came out on DVD this month. So I pushed it to the top of the Netflix queue, and we played the disc a couple of nights ago. Brilliant work. It deals with the history, culture, and the present of the Jewish deli restaurants and does it very well. I'd highly recommend it.
