a review roundup, a Nota bene, and a review:*

Book report #34, Sexual Homicide: Patterns & Motives, by Robert K. Ressler et al:

Results of extensive jailhouse interviews by the FBI with 36 murderers, including anonymous case studies and a discussion of patterns of behavior in same. Fascinating reading (for me, anyway), and another one of those books that's really useful to the working writer.

Not a lot of new information for me, here (this was originally published over twenty years ago), but this is presented in a no-nonsense and well-organized fashion, without a lot of faffing about.

And now, some reviews:

"Tideline," in the current Asimov's, gets some attention. You can read the first bit of the story here.

Yes, I saw what Truesdale said. You can all stop sending me links now, because I don't care.
