Yes I’ve heard it’s good. I’m really not in the mood for it at present though, so I’m going to find a SF book this afternoon to tide me over for the last two days at camp.

Sigh! My familiarity with this is only limited by my memory. (see below)Yikes! I'm tired of these memory slips.
I rely heavily on my Goodreads book database to help me sort what I’ve read (and enjoyed or not). I suppose it doesn’t matter, since if I can’t remember the story, it will be like a new book anyhow. But, at least I won’t buy it again. I just have to find it in my numerous (and somewhat untidy) bookshelves.Sigh! My familiarity with this is only limited by my memory. (see below)
I am debating presently between a book that @dannymcg reminded me about when he pictured "Catspaw" the second of a trilogy. I've "bought" something I don't do very often, most of my reading is from Amazon Unlimited, Psion by Joan D. Vinge. I don't believe I've read it, but I certainly remember contemplating "Catspaw" at one time. None of the blurbs rings a bell, so it should either be a work I've not read or seem like a work I've never read. The other possibility is Cold Dark Places by Kylie Brant an author I've enjoyed before. --- We'll see.
That's one of my favourites, and I look forward to hearing what you think of it. Even after numerous reads I can't pretend I understand the philosophical/religious aspects brought up by the clergyman, but it's a rattling good tale with an interesting depiction of postwar life, though more of a thriller than the usual whodunnit/murder-mystery type of story.I just started The Tiger in the Smoke by Margery Allingham.
