A chance conversation led to an idea that seems to be becoming a new novel. So, basically, I’m immersed in writing the novel I wish I was reading. That means I’m not reading as much as I’d like.
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 magazines.
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.
Norstrilia by Cordwainer Smith. A re-read that, nonetheless, had me hooked. A book that proves that knowing the basics of the plot is not a spoiler if the story is good enough.
A Wizard Abroad by Diane Duane. Audio.
Whatever After by E.M. Tippets. ARC. Just started
Lots of articles and the like for research.
