Books 2012: 176-178


176. Carrie Vaughn, Kitty Steals The Show. Tor, 2012.

Vaughn's latest Kitty the werewolf radio-talkshow-host book. (Perhaps the eighth? I've lost count.) It does much what previous installments have done in much the same style, quite satisfactorily, except that this time Kitty's attending a paranormal conference in London. Entertaining.


177. R.M. Meluch, The Queen's Squadron. Roc, 1992.

An odd, interesting, and... ambitious in strange ways piece of space opera. Worth reading, but I'm not quite sure what I think of it.


178. Ari Marmell, False Covenant. Pyr, 2012.

The second of Marmell's "Widdershins Adventures," featuring a cocky thief with a personal god sitting on her (metaphorical) shoulder. Slight, but nonetheless fast and entertaining. I begin to dislike Marmell's habit of killing off the most interesting characters aside from his Sue-ish protagonist, however.




Today's accomplishments: did the rounds with the bureaucracy of bank and records office, acquired a gym locker, ordered a new laptop, wrote an 800-word post for Tor.com, wrote 400 words of fiction. Submitted poems to Mythic Delirium. Queried poems out at Goblin Fruit ~10 weeks. Asked a not-very-outstanding interview question. Got very damp.

Thesis: No. This must change rapidly.
