For Fans of Sandy's

Alexander McCall Smith has a new book unfolding as a serialized novel hosted by the Telegraph. It's a sequel to the similarly published "Corduroy Mansions." This one's called "The Dog Who Came In From The Cold."

>> Read or listen to it read online.

I should warn you, though. The author, a master of popular fiction, likes to end each chapter with a twist or question to make you want to keep reading. But in this case you'll have to wait 24 hours to do so. If that kind of thing bugs you, check in on him once a week to reduce the effects of these cliff hangers. Or wait a couple months until the whole thing is posted.

The last one was a tidy 100 chapters long. Sadly, they have taken it down. The hardback edition came out in the UK in July, so that's probably why. I've yet to see it in my favorite bookstore.
