Books & Beginnings XIX

img_1114Reveal: The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis comes in next from Books & Beginnings XVIII. This book involves time travel, parallel storytelling of the Black Plague of Dark Ages and a new plague unleashed in the present day of the story. This is, perhaps, one of the most horrifying imaginings of the Black Plague I have ever read. This book is splendid bit of science-fiction meets historical fiction. A beautiful piece of work.

 

Up Next: The next book came from what I thought an unlikely source. You see, I had read this author before but this was a different genre than what anything else I had ever read of this writer’s work. I thought of him a kind of beach read. Then he wrote what has become my favorite book of all time.

The small boys came early to the hanging.
