Books 2017: 75-85


75. Laura Lam, Shattered Minds. Tor, 2017.

Read for review for Tor.com. Really sodding good.


76. Nancy Kress, Tomorrow's Kin. Tor, 2017.

Read for review for Locus. Good, I guess.


77. Catherynne M. Valente, The Refrigerator Monologues. Saga Press, 2017. Illustrated by Annie Wu.

Read for review for Locus. I wish I'd liked it better.


78. Cat Sparks, Lotus Blue. Talos, 2017.

Read for review for Patreon. Enjoyable.


79. Malka Older, Infomocracy. Tor.com, 2016.

Read for column. Really solid debut.


80-82. M.C.A. Hogarth, Amulet Rampant, Only the Open, and In Extremis. Ebooks. 20-?-2017.

I need to figure out how to talk about these books. Continues the series begun in Even the Wingless and Some Things Transcend. Is really interested in issues of consent, mental health, power, trauma, consequences, and change, but told through the lens of space elves, space dragons, and space furries. With space opera psychic powers.


83-84. K.J. Charles, A Fashionable Indulgence and A Seditious Affair. Ebooks. Loveswept, 2015-2016.

I picked these up on the recommendation of Foz Meadows. They're historical (regency) romance featuring men who love men, and A Seditious Affair, at least, is an absolutely stunning examination of a respectful relationship between people who are opposites in almost every way.


nonfiction


85. Edward J. Watts, Hypatia: The Life and Legend of an Ancient Philosopher. Oxford University Press, 2017.

I want to talk about this at greater length at some point, but for now: it's a fascinating biography and worth reading.
