A Change of Plans and Mel on the Shelves

Big Jim, one of the guys with me here in Pittsburg, got a phone call from home. His elderly father in law passed away in the afternoon. So I took Big Jim to the airport yesterday evening. Sympathies to the family in their time of mourning.

The job goes on, so back to work I go. The rush hour traffic on the way back from the airport was terrible, so I pulled into a Walmart just off the interstate to kill some time. Look at what I found on the bookracks!

It Mel Odom's latest book, HellGate: London: Goetia. It's a dark and strange tale about demons, magic and people who fight to survive in and overcome the horrors of a post-apocalyptic London. I have a copy at home. I brought one his Rogue Angel novels, Serpent's Kiss, with me on this trip. If the Hellgate book is as good as the Rogue Angel series, then it's going to be great. Can't wait to read it!

It was a good book. Ironically, I wound up rooting for Walter.
