Review: Midnight Crossroads by Charlaine Harris

Midnight Crossroads Book Cover Midnight Crossroads
Midnight, Texas
Charlaine Harris
paranormal suspense, paranormal thriller

Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and the Davy highway. It’s a pretty standard dried-up western town.

There’s a pawnshop with three residents. One is seen only at night. There’s a diner, but people stopping there tend not to linger. There’s a newcomer, Manfred Bernardo, who just wants to work hard and blend in. But Manfred has secrets of his own...

A review of Midnight Texas by Charlaine Harris. Despite being a longtime fan of Charlaine Harris, I didn’t become interested…

The Butchering Art

Review: The Butchering Art by Lindsey Fitzharris

October 17, 2017

"Warning: She spares no detail!" —Erik Larson, bestselling author of Dead Wake
A Top 10 Science Book of Fall 2017, Publishers Weekly
"Fascinating and shocking." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The gripping story of how Joseph Lister’s antiseptic method changed medicine forever.

In The Butchering Art, the historian Lindsey Fitzharris reveals the shocking world of nineteenth-century surgery on the eve of profound transformation. She conjures up early operating theaters—no place for the squeamish—and surgeons, working before anesthesia, who were lauded for their speed and brute strength. These medical pioneers knew that the aftermath of surgery was often more dangerous than their patients’ afflictions, and they were baffled by the persistent infections that kept mortality rates stubbornly high. At a time when surgery couldn’t have been more hazardous, an unlikely figure stepped forward: a young, melancholy Quaker surgeon named Joseph Lister, who would solve the deadly riddle and change the course of history.

Fitzharris dramatically recounts Lister’s discoveries in gripping detail, culminating in his audacious claim that germs were the source of all infection—and could be countered by antiseptics. Focusing on the tumultuous period from 1850 to 1875, she introduces us to Lister and his contemporaries—some of them brilliant, some outright criminal—and takes us through the grimy medical schools and dreary hospitals where they learned their art, the deadhouses where they studied anatomy, and the graveyards they occasionally ransacked for cadavers.

Eerie and illuminating, The Butchering Art celebrates the triumph of a visionary surgeon whose quest to unite science and medicine delivered us into the modern world.

After serving his time for robbery, Shadow Moon leaves prison ready to return to his wife and normal life. But higher powers have greater plans, and his wife dies mere days before he's on his way home. With nothing more to return to, Shadow accepts a job as hired muscle, errand boy and companion to the mysterious Mr. Wednesday, who takes him on a journey across America to meet a colorful cast of characters who are simply divine. But for every old god, there's a new god, too. And conflicts are arising between both sides, with Shadow in the middle whether he likes it or not.

Katie Pugh Reviews American Gods Season One. Ex-convict Shadow Moon roams a world he doesn’t understand, left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife. Little does he know his life is about to change after he meets a crafty, charismatic con man named Mr. Wednesday, who offers Shadow a job as his bodyguard. As their journey begins, Shadow encounters a hidden America where magic is real and fear grows over the ascending power of New Gods like Technology and Media. In a grand plan to combat the threat, Mr. Wednesday attempts to unite the Old Gods to defend their existence and rebuild the influence that they’ve lost, leaving Shadow struggling to accept this new world and his place in it.
