Lovely children book on gender
Introducing Teddy: A gentle story about gender and friendship - Dougal MacPherson,Jess Walton

Errol and Thomas the teddy are friend. 


They play together.

 

Thomas is unhappy. 

 

Thomas the teddy wants to tell Errol that she is a girl teddy and not a boy teddy. 

 

The story is about gender identity for little children. Girl teddy being mistaken as boy teddy would make the girl teddy unhappy. It is good to allow the girl teddy to identity herself as girl teddy.

Not bad, not great
The Other Teddy Roosevelts - Mike Resnick

Not bad. If you've read any SFnal anthology since the middle 1980s (earlier, actually, but I'm too lazy to go look up his first appearance in print) you've read some Resnick. I'm no big fan of his pedestrian writing, but I'm a BIG fan of TR.

 

Red Whitechapel puts TR at the centre (cause it's in Lunnon I misspelled center, see?) of the Jack the Ripper hunt. Resnick even says he wrote this to get some attention for a theory he proposed in a non-fiction article published in the 1970s regarding his (quite plausible and eminently sensible) idea of who and what the real Ripper was. Wasn't much impressed by the fictionalization. 3 stars

 

Two Hunters in Manhattan was a real eye-roller, TR making the acquaintance of an ancient Greek vampire who, inexplicably, pays no slightest attention to TR's request for assistance in specific ways but instead whimsically decides to do it his own way. Who knows, maybe that comes with having blues eyes, black hair. 2 stars

 

The Roosevelt Dispatches puts Teddy in Cuba and has has him meet the Martians from Wells' The War of the Worlds. Okay. 3 stars

 

Bully! got the otherwhen versions of TR rolling in Resnick's creative world. Nominated for the big awards. I enjoyed this one. 3.5 stars

 

The Bull Moose at Bay is the most intriguing story to me...how TR got to where he is at the beginning of the tale is deeply satisfying, the place where the tale takes off is spot-on, and the ending is also satisfying. My quibble is why be coy about the identities of the birthday party guests? Still, hands-down my favorite. 4 stars

 

Over There was depressing and unlikely. TR was too full fledged a politician to fall for what happened to him; the ending was inevitable and seen clearly from the beginning. 2 stars

 

The Light that Blinds, the Claws that Catch is unmemorable and uninteresting. 3 stars because it's competently written.

Man of My Dreams: A Steamy Contemporary Romance (The Manly Series Book 3) - Teddy Hester A daredevil pilot and a cautiously lonely heiress. Both have their own dramas to work through. For Menuett, she's still that lost little girl, haunted my loneliness and scared of what fate has in store.

He loves being a pilot until the day tragedy strikes and has him questioning his choices. Hester paints a picture of love lost, hearts found and happy endings at stake. Man of My Dreams is many things, but at the center of it all is a sweetly captivating story of hope and healing. Unique and impactive read.

Neither knows how to compromise. Man in Charge is a battle of wills that steams up the boardroom and heats up the bedroom. Order is the objective, but chaos is the name of the game.
