A short break

I'm on a short holiday from Friday, April 18, through Sunday, April 20, during which time I'll not be posting anything. I'm leaving my laptop behind but I'll be reading other blogs on my cellphone and tablet, although I may not have the time to comment. On this trip I'll be reading a book and an ebook respectively—Stallion Gate by Martin Cruz Smith and The Education of a Pulp Writer & Other Stories by David Cranmer. David is the editor-publisher of Beat to a Pulp, a webzine that publishes short stories in many genres. I'll be with my family and giving us company in the hill station will be lots of birds, monkeys, and horses, and unfortunately people too. A happy Good Friday and Easter weekend to you all.

    1. Mystica, three days is hardly a holiday but it's still better than not taking any. I hope you'd a good time on your vacation.

    1. Col, we'd fun walking in forest area and riding horses. I've always liked gardening though not where I live.

  3. David writes a mean pulp story. Be prepared.

    1. Ron, I didn't know until I read his collection. I liked the stories as well as David's crisp style.

    1. Yvette, thank you. We took this brief holiday after a long time and we loved it. I've been a fan of Cruz Smith's fiction since reading GORKY PARK. His STALLION GATE is historical fiction set around Oppenheimer and the bomb.

  5. I presume you are back now, and had a nice trip. I look forward to reports on your reading. I will be off to Alabama for a week tomorrow, with no idea what internet access I will have.

    1. Tracy, where we went even the mobile phone networks were inaccessible. We spent the three days taking long walks, riding horses, playing games, and reading books. I hope you have a good time in Alabama.
