Books 2011: 191-192


191. Courtney Schafer, The Whitefire Crossing.

Magic, mages, smuggling, mountain-climbing. It's been a long time since I read a book which revolved so utterly around the relationship between two men, both of whom were straight. A interesting book, but it could have done with a little more closure to its conclusion.


192. Anne McCaffrey, Dragonsdawn.

A lot of things have changed since I was twelve. My ability to love this book is one of them. I remembered it as one of the better Pern books, which is why I resolved to purchase it and reread it in honour of the author.

Has the world really changed that much since I was twelve, or is it just me? Or has the world really changed that much since 1988 that all the little assumptions which really get my goat leap up in all their discommoding obviousness to clobber me over the head?

O hai thar, Sexism Fairy! So not nice to see you again.
