Recently I asked Lewis about what he was reading. His reply:
I just recently read Fever Dream by Dennis Palumbo, a fellow Poisoned Pen Press author and psychologist who adds the element of the workings of the mind perfectly into his mystery novels. I am currently reading Sixkill, the last Spenser book written by Robert B. Parker shortly before his death. I always enjoy Parker’s characters and crisp style.Visit Mitchell Scott Lewis's website.
Another favorite writer is James Swain, author of the Tony Valentine Novels. I recently finished Deadman’s Poker. I love the casino settings and Swain’s sense of humor and fun characters.
I am also just finishing a wonderful book I stumbled upon called Island in the Sea of Time, by S.M. Sterling. It’s a time travel story with a terrific twist and historical point of view. In it the entire island of Nantucket is swept back in time three thousand years. I am just beginning to reread Isaac Asimov’s I Robot and subsequent Robot books, a series I find more pertinent with each passing year as artificial intelligence becomes more a reality. Asimov is one of my favorite writers of any genre. I haven’t planned much ahead. I prefer to meander through book stores and see what grabs my attention.
