1999 Christmas List, http://www.rasmusen.org/_amazon/xmas99.htm

Some Other Good Things of 1999: The Siege of the Villa Lipp, by Eric Ambler, 1977. About international financial skullduggery. Gripping, certainly.

Larry Niven, The Long Arm of Gil Hamilton

The spinner saucer thing.

baby backpack.

Economics and Jewish Law: Halachic Perspectives.

Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church.

Alan Bullock, Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives

CS. Forester, The Ship

The Master of Go. Kawabata. First-rate. A subtle novel about character. Is it OK to take advantage of secondary rules of a game, such as the details of sealed play or the timing of recesses?

Tony Hillerman, Coyote Waits, 1990, 352 pp. An excellent Chee/Leaphorn thriller, about Old West historians and a drunken Indian.

Sierra Nevada Bigfoot strong ale. First rate! Maybe for 10 Best List. Just like their pale ale in hop and yeast flavor, but stronger and slightly more complex and bitter. 9.6 percent.

RCH Brewery, PItchfork Bitter, is firsr rate. Prizewinning, and expensive.

Wal-Mart ripple cut potato chips are first-rate.
