Book review: "The Lesbian Pulp MEGAPACK: Three Complete Novels" by Fletcher Flora

The Lesbian Pulp MEGAPACK TM: Three Complete NovelsThe Lesbian Pulp MEGAPACK TM: Three Complete Novels by Fletcher Flora
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

All three novels are worth reading. The first two are hindered by unsympathetic lesbian characters, which was probably typical for lesbian pulp novels of that time period. The third was the best, with likable characters, engaging plot, and crackling smart dialog. None of the novels offer graphic depictions of sexuality, or sleaze, and the lesbianism is mostly implied. Mr. Flora is clearly a talented author. Not sure how he ended up writing lesbian pulp fiction.

Lake Orion 5K Run Night Edition

I started running 5K races last month. My second 5K run improved from the first run by about a minute and a half coming in at 34:19.

My next run will be at the Mother's Wish run on September 26, 2015, a breast cancer benefit.

Book review: "Draw the Curtain Close" by Thomas B. Dewey

Draw the Curtain Close: Mac Detective Series #1Draw the Curtain Close: Mac Detective Series #1 by Thomas B. Dewey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hard boiled detective "Mac" gets himself involved in a murder mystery. This is a very encouraging start to Dewey's "Mac" Detective Series of books. I intend to read more of them.
