I don't know where that weird link came from in the last post. I know I screwed it up somehow. Oh, well here is the actual Link to David Finkle's review of Roth's latest novel, Nemesis in The Huffington Post:

Stuff-I'm-Thinking-About Mondy November 8th 2010

The links below the following book links in the body of this blog lead to some random items as well as information pertinent to writing I want to do in the future. When I finish my book reviews for November I think I will take a hiatus from book reviewing for the holidays. I'm on vacation for most of December and I want to take advantage of the time off to complete my novel and another project I've been working on. I am looking forward to reading for pleasure for a change. I have Philip Roth's new novel Nemesis, Here is an excellent review from reviewer David Finkle in The Huffington Post Joe Hill's graphic novel Locke and Key, Welcome to Lovecraft, Jonathan Lethem's Chronic City, and after writing this blog I might meander to Walmart to snag Stephen King's new book of novellas, Full Dark, No Stars that will be released to the general public November 9th. One of the stories in his new book is about a man making a deal with the devil called "Fair Extension." You can find more info about his new book and Mr. KIng at his website. Funny thing is I have an idea for a story or maybe a short play that has a different twist on the whole selling your soul to the devil/crossroads thing. My approach to this trope might actually be something completely brand new, not sure yet. But first I have to get my deadlines out of the way.
Here is some other stuff I am thinking about.
