News Flash: A new interview talking about recent projects and older influences was just posted. You might enjoy.
Wondering what the FF is about? The Friday Fragments feature lists of what I’ve read over the past week. They are not meant to be a recommendation list. If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive list, you can look on my website.
This is not a book review column. It’s just a list with, maybe, a few opinions tossed in.
The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper. Myth and legend intertwine with beautiful prose in this book. Added bonus: It’s a perfect read for cold weather.
The Vor Game by Lois McMaster Bujold. Audiobook. I enjoyed the twists and turns in this one, especially the chance to get to know Emperor Gregor a bit better.
Carol Milne: Knitted Glass by Steve Isaacson. A short book that provides a fascinating look at an intricate artistic process.
I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll, Except When I Hate It by Brian Boone. A amusing look at some Rock and Roll trivia. The author has a sardonic tone that works well – as long as the reader knows something about the subject matter. I found myself musing what would happen if someone cited this as if it was a wholly scholarly work, instead of a work that is scholarly up until the author can’t resist a joke.
Cetaganda by Lois Mc Master Bujold. Audiobook. Miles shows a tendency to seek out trouble.
Still reading the proofs for the mass market edition of Artemis Awakening. If you didn’t read my WW this week, do so. It will explain why the job is taking me so long!
