I’m reviving the Sorcer container themed post for a Friday dose of reader advisory.
My original choices were “Tatoos and tattooing” (Hutt City Libraries) as a great source of inpiration for my next ink, and also Port Phillip’s “eBooks – feel free to download and keep forever” container.
But then I saw Hutt’s “Forensic fiction – CSI on paper” and being a closet fan (not closet anymore I’ve just told the Internet) of cheesy American crime shows I was drawn to the suggestions of what I could read after I had watched the complete Criminal Minds and NCIS (franchise) over the xmas break.
What I particularly liked about the titles featured was that many included a review that had been added from the book jacket or elsewhere. It made the decision making process easier – an attention grabbing cover combined with an unrealistic and crazy plot on the same page:
The Consciousness Plague is about memory – more particularly, how the loss of memory, in slivers of time deducted from a growing number of individuals, can subtly undermine and play havoc with everything from the investigation of serial stranglings to candlelight dinners. Dr. D’Amato, NYPD forensic detective, investigates a spate of unusual cases of memory loss and finds evidence of a bacteria-like organism that has lived in our brains since our origin as a species and may be responsible for our very consciousness.
I’ve asked Hutt to share the boolean for this container and will update the post when I have it, which is now here:
It’s a canned search using an Anywhere for Keywords forensic+fiction and the format BK*Books so I didn’t have to worry about identifying specific collections. Sorted by Item First Available Date.
Good work Hutt for your Sorcer Container of the Quarter.
