FF: Embarrassment of Riches

I’m in the middle of four or five different fictional works and loving it!

For those of you just discovering this feature, the Friday Fragments lists what I’ve read over the past week.  Most of the time I don’t include details of either short fiction (unless part of a book-length collection) or magazine articles.

The Fragments are not meant to be a recommendation list.  If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive recommendation list, you can look on my website under Neat Stuff.

Once again, this is not a book review column.  It’s just a list with, maybe, a bit of description or a few opinions tossed in.

Recently Completed:

The Long Earth by Stephen Baxter and Terry Pratchett.  Audiobook.  More a travelogue through possible worlds with short stories tossed in than a usual novel.  I’ll take a break but at least nibble the start of the next one.

Parsifal’s Page by Gerald Morris.  I enjoyed and will continue the series when time permits.

In Progress:

The Man in the Tree by Sage Walker.  Advanced Bound Manuscript of forthcoming release.

Goldenhand by Garth Nix.  The first novel to carry the excellent “Old Kingdom” series forward since Abhorsen.  Much anticipated.

The Beasts of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs.  Audiobook.  I haven’t read this one is decades so it’s going to almost be a like a new book.

Also:

Finished the “Commercial Suicide” story arc of The Wicked and the Divine graphic novel last week.  Now dipping in to material that will move the story forward, rather than do some (much enjoyed) fleshing out of characters.
