It’s an Odd Series

ForeverOddIt’s cold as a mother-in-law’s heart. The day is dark and gloomy and the rain we’ve been threatened with all day has finally begun. It’s a beautiful atmosphere for a nice juicy crime story. This one is just the ticket!

It’s quite an interesting book I’m reading now; Forever Odd by Dean Koontz. It’s the second of a series of six with the character Odd Thomas.

Our protagonist has the psychic ability to see the lingering dead. The late Elvis Presley plays a role in this tale as Odd tries to rescue his friend, Danny Jessup, from a kidnapper. Poor Danny suffers from Osteogenesis Imperfecta, making him a very fragile man whose bones are easily broken.

If you like crime yarns, this would be a good series to check out. The books are, in order, Odd Thomas, Forever Odd, Brother Odd, Odd Hours, Odd Apocalypse, and Deeply Odd.

As one might expect from Dean Koontz, the stories are well written and actually stand alone well. I say this because I inadvertently read Brother Odd first; not realizing it was part of a series.

SusanBoyleOf course, if you’d prefer a different kind of story, let me recommend New Yesterdays by that strange, odd, and curious author, Jim L Wright. A screwball to be sure, but he can tell a good story! Click the link and get your copy today!

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed the Odd books, Jim.

    Enjoyed New Yesterdays too, man. Thanks for writing it. Been too long since I read something about our Amerind brothers.
