Heat Wave

Castle, Richard
Based on the television series, as a police/action story it is pretty good, but too much smoochie stuff for me.

The Joy Of Names

Lederer, Richard
Interesting book about names. I've heard the author speak on the radio and television so many times that I read the book in the author's voice. And I think I've heard a lot of this material before.

Beyond This Horizon

Heinlein, Robert
I LOVE Heinlein, I read a number of his titles over and over. This will not be one of them. I'm too dumb to understand the genetics, so LONG descriptions of same were...boring! The use of the n-word (in one spot) was offensive to me. I think the author should have used another example. There were a few instances of the "good Heinlein" showing through, but most of the text was dreary much to me.
