A new review: Jasper Fforde's "The Big Over Easy".

Monday July 20, 2009
Bookworm's Lair has lost another one of its favourite authors: Frank McCourt passed away yesterday, on July 19, 2009 in New York. Maybe its a good time to pick up 'Angela's Ashes' from the shelf and read it again.

A late Christmas present: the review of A Redbird Christmas, a Christmas novel by Fannie Flagg. Which still can be read after Christmas!
To all my visitors a very happy New Year and all the best for 2009 :-D.

Today for the first time I had to add a death date to a page of a Bookworm's Lair author: Michael Crichton passed away two days ago at the age of 66. He will be greatly missed for his scientific page-turners. I had just rediscovered his books and the review for "State of Fear" is still laying on my desk.

Some time has gone by since the last review of a Nicholas Sparks novel on Bookworm's Lair. So here is True Believer, his first 'mystery' novel and the first in a series about a couple from Boone Creek, North Carolina.

I discovered a new author who just had to be added to Bookworm's Lair: Diane Setterfield, author of "The Thirteenth Tale", the US-bestseller. I can only hope that Ms. Setterfield will continue to write more books like this one.

The new year looks promising. In any case it starts with good intentions of updating this homepage more regularly. Let's begin with a new book review of "Narcissus in Chains" by Laurell K. Hamilton, the 10th installment of the Anita Blake series.

To all visitors of Bookworm's Lair a very happy and readable New Year 2008 :-D

The main page is a little bit smaller now. I finally deleted the links to the 'bestseller lists' and the 'book questionnaire'. I noticed that still a lot of people were clicking on those links but since I didn't maintain those pages anymore it was rather confusing to visitors. Ok, I was a bit nostalgic about letting those pages go, but now its done. The links on the main page will be enhanced again, I just wanted to reduce confusion for now.

Its not as if I didn't write a lot of reviews. It just sometimes takes some time to get them online. That's what happened with "Dead as a Doornail" by Charlaine Harris. The review was written in June 2006 directly after finishing the book. But then it took me nine months to get it on the Harris-homepage. Some people take as long as that to deliver a baby ;-).

And the next review is coming right up: Clive Barker's "Coldheart Canyon". Not entirely positive, but a nice read anyways. Especially for his die-hard fans!

On March 11, 2007 airs the pilot of "Blood Ties", a new TV series based on Tanya Huff's "Blood Books" with detective Vicki Nelson and vampire Henry Fitzroy. Therefore I've updated my Tanya Huff site and added some new links regarding the TV series and Ms. Huff's Blog.

At long last a new review. The lucky winner is Diana Gabaldon and her latest (last year's) bestseller "A Breath of Snow and Ashes". As always I promise to better myself and update more regularly. I'll do my very best!
Sunday September 3, 2006
I added a nice little feature to the Diana Gabaldon website: just scroll down to the bottom of the page and you'll find a map (provided by clustrmaps.com) which shows where the visitors to this site come from. You're not alone! Wow, many thanks to all my international visitors. I had no idea, and this map is only showing data for two weeks now.

You had to wait until November for a new review to come. At least fitting for Halloween its something from horror-queen Poppy Z. Brite, which is really worth your while: "Drawing Blood".
Monday July 25, 2005
I don't like to do it but from time to time I have to trash a book. This time it affects one of my (otherwise) favourite authors: Douglas Coupland and his early novel "Shampoo Planet".
Tuesday July 12, 2005
After all those horror novels here is something new from a different genre: the family story "Fligth Lessons" by Patricia Gaffney.
Friday July 8, 2005
A new volume of the Anita Blake-series by Laurell K. Hamilton is up: "Obsidian Butterfly". And its a good one!
Friday June 24, 2005
The novels by Dean Koontz seem to be the right lecture for new mothers. At least I immediately thought of a review for one of them when I had some time for myself today. Take a look at "From the Corner of his Eye" which is recommended also to non-parents.

After a long long time of silence here's something new which has never been done before at Bookworm's Lair: A new author page with THREE reviews. The lucky author is Christopher Moore and the reason for this once was his new Christmas novel 'The Stupidest Angel' last December. That's somewhat outdated now but the rest of his novels is worth reading the whole year through ... until next Christmas!

Bookworm's Lair's pages are continually updated even though I don't always mention it here. But today there were larger updates on the website of Diana Gabaldon: The 6th installment of the highlander saga will be published on September 27th and can already be pre-ordered at Amazon.com! Additionally the bibliographies of Poppy Z. Brite, Janet Evanovich and Brian Keene were updated.

All entries from January 7, 2002 until November 24, 2004 have been moved to the "What's new"-Archive.
To find entries from 1999 - 2001 you'll have to dig even deeper.
