The Last Word, May 2022

The Last Word—for discerning readers—by author Gregory Zeigler.

Well, discerning readers, it turns out I needed to be a bit more discerning about the hospital I chose. Not that the EMTs driving the bus (ambulance) give you much choice.

My first hospital stay in SoCal resulted in a win on the infection (left leg) but a loss on the right knee. I was told by several docs it would not need surgery. I walked on it for three weeks using a walker and a cane and then learned in Jackson, after returning home, I had a detached quadriceps.

That was operated on May 13 and on May 18th the infection in my left leg reared its ugly head again and I spent 4 more days in the hospital on IV antibiotics.

All that is to say, I’m on the mend now camping with Dimmie in a quiet aspen forest. But my typical newsletter will have to wait a month.

I HAVE been reading however. There is not a loser in this bunch:

The Zookeepers Wife
The Viking Heart
The Lions of Fifth Avenue
The Personal Librarian
Red Notice

I’m teaching a class for The Jackson Hole Writers Conference at the end of June comparing traditional and independent publishing. Come check it out if you are in the area. You can attend virtually also.

PT started Monday! Wish me luck.

Talk to you next month.

Gregory Zeigler, author of the Jake Goddard and Susan Brand eco- thriller series.
