Surprising Tid-Bit In Apprentice in Death

I finished the latest In Death book, Apprentice in Death. It is the 43rd book in the series and that is pretty cool. I hope they finish the movie soon. Who knows what is going on with it?

And I like pretty much all of it. So. But I like space opera best, so there it is. But if you’re looking for something in particular, this… Continue reading Science Fiction Flowchart
