TBR: Darwin’s Children

Sequel to Greg Bear’s Darwin’s Radio. Waiting for me to be in a softer, less belicose mood, to read.


TBR: To Die in Italbar by Roger Zelazny

Zelazny near the height of his power, before Amber took over. OK, I liked the first few, and they were nearly as good as, “This Immortal”, or “Creatures of Light and Darkness”, but not nearly as good as “Lord of Light” or his shorter works, collected, in “The Doors of His Face, the Lamps of His Mouth”

I have high hopes, but we’ll see how soon it gets to the top of the To Be Read stack.

TBR: Dark Ladies by Fritz Leiber

This is a two in one. “Conjure Wife” and “Our Lady of Darkness”.

I know I’ve got Conjure Wife somewhere, in an old edition, but I don’t have any chance of getting Our Lady of Darkness. I’ve liked pretty much everything he’s written, so I picked this one up, also.

This is pretty far away in style from Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser, but that’s not a bad thing, as much as I loved those books.

TBR: Agyar by Steven Brust

Steven Brust is one my favorite authors that I’ve started reading recently. That’s a mixed blessing for me. It means I’ve got a backlist to read, but I wish I’d had him to read during some dry spells. This one is from his back list. Read the first few pages at the bookstore, but only because I couldn’t resist, I knew I was buying it as soon as I saw it.


TBR: Inversions by Iain M. Banks

My boss loaned me Look to Windward, and told me I had to read it. He was right, and as soon as I found some other of Ian M. Banks’s books, I bought them. He also reminded me that Iain Banks is the same person, but not the same author. That author writes “real literature”, not genre.

I can read and enjoy “real lit”, but prefer SF. If I need seriosity, I’ll reread Dhalgren.

TBR: Fortress of Grey Ice by J.V. Jones

Sequel to A Cavern of Black Ice. J.V.Jones last few outings have been excellent, and I’m looking to pick up where we left off with this series. Although, I’ll admit, not quite enough to go dig up the last and reread it first. But enough to buy it the first time I spotted it in the bookstore.
