This isn’tContinue reading “Death in Hollywood – Peter Underwood [Books]”

Listening to the full cast audio version via Audible seemed a good way of getting reacquainted with the story.  As I’ve said before, I’m really enjoying the full cast audio productions, and American GodsContinue reading “American Gods – Neil Gaiman [Books]”
