Wed, 11 Mar 1998 21:32:06 -0500 I have been so busy, I am not getting to read much fiction lately either. Am
studying for my MS Windows NT 4.0 Server Certification. Sure wish I could read
thost books like I do novels.

Bill, have you read Lawrence Block's Hit Man. It was one of the few fictions I
have been able to sneak in for a long time, but I think it is really good. A
totally different Lawrence Block, and I do believe, without too much of a
spoiler, that the hit man could qualify for a hard-boiled, although with a few
soft spots here and there. I would definitely recommend this one to all.
