I've been moved to every 4th Wednesday instead of monthly on Saturdays, so I had to do an extra one for November - Venus on the Half-Shell by Philip José Farmer:

And then there was another schedule shift resulting in a gap (no December review), but here is the next one, and if there are no more schedule changes, these should appear every 4 weeks.

This is a review of an anthology - This is My Funniest, Edited by Mike Resnick

Instead of a book this month, I reviewed a series of short stories by Robert Sheckley - the AAA Ace stories:

This month I reviewed Fredric Brown's What Mad Universe.  Good stuff from the pulp era of SF.
