Just updating my list... thought I'd been posting here, but that must've been in my dreams.
898, "Game of Thrones" George R.R. Martin

January


899, "Federations" John Joseph Adams (antho)

Loved this.




900, "The First Five Pages" Noah Lukeman
Posted by KatsInCommand, Mon Jul-26-10 02:58 PM
Probably my 6th time through this book. Such a good buddy for revision.

901, "Self-Editing for Fiction Writers" Browne/King
Posted by KatsInCommand, Mon Jul-26-10 02:59 PM
Another must for revision time.

902, "Old Man's War" John Scalzi

Excellent characterizations, nice action too.

903, "Ruins Metropolis" Reynolds (antho)
Posted by KatsInCommand, Mon Jul-26-10 03:00 PM

Still reading this, one story at a time, but very enjoyable.

904, "Sword & Sorceress XXIV" Waters (antho)
Posted by KatsInCommand, Mon Jul-26-10 03:01 PM
I have maybe two more stories left, but enjoyed most of these. One left me questioning (a god stepped in at the end??), but all in all a very good read.
905, "Destination Future" anthology
Posted by KatsInCommand, Mon Jul-26-10 03:02 PM
Loving this one. The second story is quite.. intimate. Didn't expect that in a SF antho.
906, "Dust" by Elizabeth Bear
Posted by KatsInCommand, Mon Jul-26-10 03:03 PM
A little outside my normal reading, I had to reread the ending to really get it, but I did enjoy it.

I love Bear's style and characters, but her endings often have "huh?" moments. I'd love to read Chill, the sequel to Dust, but I can't find it anywhere.
907, Writers of the Future - antho 21 and 25
Posted by KatsInCommand, Mon Jul-26-10 03:04 PM
Really liked "Gone Black" and "The Shadow Man". Books seem heavy on SF rather than fantasy.
941, Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

Read it in a day. Haven't done that in years!
949, "Melting Stone" Tamora Pierce

Really enjoyed the book. Totally see myself writing something like this.

Loved it! (even though I'm reading them in reverse order)
