September Musings and Reading Recommendations


Sasha's first day at the beach. We took her down to a park on Mercer Island and let her play in Lake Washington. She loved the water!

September Reading Recommendations:

GODSLAYER, by Jaqueline Carey, Tor Books. Excellent fantasy that leaves you questioning right and wrong, and the worthiness of our striving for light and right. I stayed awake for hours after finishing this book, savoring the story, the fabulous writing, and the deep sense of disquiet the book left me with.

END IN FIRE, by Syne Mitchell, ROC Science Fiction. I actually read this awhile ago, and did one of the inside blurbs for this book. No point is posting it until you could get a copy....END IN FIRE is a good, fast, tense read, and feels a lot like the classic science fiction. Even more important, it's based on a scenario that really isn't very far-fetched, and seems to be getting less far-fetched every day: the events in the book are triggered by oil shortages. Well worth picking up, enjoying, and thinking about.

THE LIGHT AGES, by Ian R. McCloud, Ace.
Nice, nice writing. I met his this month, in Glasgow, on a panel. Nice fellow, as well. He's a writer like Neal Stephenson or China Mieville - sometimes his sentences are so beautiful you have to re-read them and re-read them and then just sit and look at them. BTW - it's a nice alternate-history fantasy.
