Dangerous Visions - anthology - ed. Harlan Ellison -
Again, Dangerous Visions - anthology - ed. Harlan Ellison - many of the stories in these try to use interesting narrative techniques (hello James Joyce stream of consciousness!) for the SF stories they are telling. I am not interested in interesting narrative techniques. I skipped the stories that did not catch my attention in the first few pages, and I did not bother to read many of Ellison's introductions. I dislike the person he presents on the page - in the second book, he goes off on people who complain about his selections when they have received a free review copy. I found the statement that James Tiptree is the man to beat for the Hugo highly amusing.

Bab: a sub-deb - Mary Roberts Rhinehart - humorous, set in the late teens. I can't help but be sympathetic to the main character, who has been raised to make a good marriage, but is stymied by not being out, as her older sister is not married yet.

Black Sheep - Georgette Heyer - amusing Heyer.

Unveiled -
Unclaimed -
Unlocked -
Unraveled - Courtney Milan - Regency romances. Fairly well done. Read them all in 1 weekend.

Warprize - Elizabeth Vaughan - a decent fantasy story masquerading as a romance. Will be looking for the followups.

The Score - Donald Westlake - I do not like the protagonist; I finished it because I wanted to see how it turned out; I will not be looking for any more.
