Kill Your Darlings (Yellow team)
World of Trouble: The Last Policeman Book III - Ben H. Winters


It never occurred to me to indicate what team i was on.

Fixed.  : )


After some thought, I'm going to use this one for a Victim card.

Henry rarely, if ever steps on the bad side, sometimes to his own detriment.





Henry is incredibly single minded.

His sister got duped big time.

As long he's sniffing out 'stuff' Cortez is happy a as a clam most of the time. 

Henry was smart enough to leave the dog behind safe with an Amish family.


At least the whining didn't last long.


I can only use one at a time unless I'm collecting, so I'm going to hold this one for a bit.

Kill Your Darlings (Yellow team)
Countdown City - Ben H. Winters


77 days left til the end of the world as we know it and he feels fine.

LOL  Couldn't resist.


An old baby sitter from his childhood wants him to track down her missing husband.


People are just up and dropping everything to do wish fulfillment stuff, but she thinks Henry can track this guy down because she thinks he's just off doing something silly and noble and he just needs to be asked to come home.  


He isn't even on the police force anymore.


Henry is way too nice for his own good.

I don't think the word no exists for him unless he's talking to his sister, and even then it's iffy.




Guess for Cause of Death:  shot with an arrow

Reading progress update: I've read 20%.
World of Trouble: The Last Policeman Book III - Ben H. Winters


Hey! Hey!

It’s my lucky day!

Another whiner!


Henry started out so nicely.


Book 1 was mostly just doing his job:

It’s the end of the world and we know it, and i feel fine.


Book 2 kinda morphed into

I’ll be your candle on the water

or maybe

You’re the wind beneath my wings

Depending on if you think about him or the lady who asked him to find her missing husband.



He’s trying to find his sister.

He’s whining.

Everything is his fault.

Even though he wasn’t even there.


His flaky sister went all conspiracy and took off , she asked him to come with her even though he’s half bled out from a gunshot wound to the artery in the upper arm. She apparently didn’t care that he’ll die if they don’t get him to a hospital.

His fault - he left her.


The nutty chick in the abandoned clothing store.

His fault because he was there a couple weeks before looking for info and the asshole running the place abandoned her.


Girl in a clearing with her throat sliced.

His fault because he wasn't there earlier to prevent it.


I can blame him for the dog being injured (a feisty little bichon friese) since he should have left it behind, but come on.

Kill Your Darlings (Yellow team)
The Last Policeman - Ben H. Winters


Strangely compelling story about the world about the year leading up to an asteroid strike.


The only officer left who seems to actually want to do his job while everyone else is taking off to do whatever.


Guess for Cause of Death:  Crushed in a bad tesseract

Poorly written, interesting content.
Beyond Band of Brothers:The War Memoirs of Major Dick Winters - Cole C. Kingseed,Dick Winters,Tom Weiner

I probably should have just read Band of Brothers, but this was the one that was on sale, so this was the one I read. Winters is a very poor writer on a technical level, often repeating himself, not very good at describing things, often failing to land a joke. It's basically ten hours of story time from that uncle that drones on. He had a helper writer, and one has to feel that person should have helped more.


However, the content was quite interesting, if you're into infantry tactics in WWII (which I am for fanfic purposes), and I liked the bits of relationship and personality that gleamed through. I haven't seen the mini series, and generally don't know a lot about the topic, so I enjoyed the story on that level.


I'd rec the book for people who are really interested in reading all the military histories, are into Easy Company stuff, or like me are doing fic research. Will admit to skipping the last section which was his Opinions on Leadership.
