Allusion is not Illusion

You'll pry my books off my cold, dead body. By the time you shift them all I'll be flat and dessicated.

Parker, Joe Abercrombie, James Enge A couple good stories (Enge and Parker stand out) but overall disappointing. In some cases, such as Ericson, whom I've not read prior, it may be that the author is simply not to my taste, but several I had liked before and didn't enjoy here.
