Waiting for the Barbarians - Coetzee, J M
For decades the Magistrate has run the affairs of a tiny frontier settlement, ignoring the impending war between the barbarians and the Empire, but a quixotic act of rebellion lands him in jail, branded an enemy of the state. From the author of DUSKLANDS.

It is impossible to say if this story is set in the past, the present, or the future, which creates an interesting effect.

Oooh, do like a bit of Hiaasen, but only in small doses - his style is a little "full on". Time to give this one a try.
 
In the meantime I've reached G.K. Chesterton in my list of authors I really ought to have read but haven't actually managed to. A loooonnnng list.
 
The good news is that some of his work is free on a kindle.
 

 
Pretty damn good so far.

This girl is pretty awesome...and gritty....and makes you turn the page. And want to keep reading late into the night.

Good idea.

That is so cool! You might want to make sure that's an acid-free bag you keep it in: a lot of plastics are bad for paper over the long term, and it would be a shame if anything happened to that piece of history.

I'm just catching up on reading all the newspapers that were on my front porch. Actually I found this in the walls of my last house that was built in 1764 in Petersburg. General Grants Band Members were using the house at the time this paper got "lost". Its the entire paper and not just the front page. Seeing as its from April 15, 1865 I've been very careful with it and its usually in a huge ziplock bag. Its ironic that it mentions "Jeff Davis" is now in still rebel held Danville and right now I live right behind the very house he was in on that date. They used about a number 2 font because they were trying to save paper because of the war, It even has the classifieds. Fun reading. I took it to the Nauseum of the Confederacy and they said its authentic.
