I think Mr. Chandler is one of the all time greats in the crime genre. Have you read any of Charles Willeford’s books?Speaking of crime novels - now racing through Raymond Chandler's entire opus of Philip Marlowe detective novels. Great stuff! Even though they are 70-80 years old.
That was a good book. Worth the read. It's stories and thoughts on SHTF from someone whose been through it in another country.The Dark Secrets of SHTF Survival. Surviving the Bosnia War.
The Nazis did the same thing in the 1930s.The Pyramids And The Pentagon: The Government's Top Secret Pursuit Of Mystical Relics, Ancient Astronauts and Lost Civilizations by Nick Redfern
I can't possibly do a description justice so from the jacket...
Focusing primarily upon the classified work of the U.S. Government, The Pyramids and the Pentagon is a detailed study of how and why government agencies have, for decades, taken a clandestine and profound interest in numerous archeological, historical, and religious puzzles.
I've been slowly working through this book, but have had a lot of other distractions lately. However, I came across an amusing passage today, which I thought I would share."A Gardener's Year" by H. Rider Haggard.
Similar to "A Farmer's Year" by the same author, which I posted about on July 26th. I finished that one, now I've moved on to this book, which was written a few years later, in 1904.
