Books 2012: 270-278


270. Mary Douglas, Natural Symbols. Routledge Classics, 2003. (First edition 1970.)

Douglas is both old-fashioned and her ultimate thesis is difficult for me to follow. Something something grid and group something something symbols something something value judgement.


271-2. Chris Anne Wolfe, Shadows of Aggar and Fires of Aggar. Ebooks.

When I am anxious, in the last couple of years, I go looking for lesbian SFF romance. These are pretty good examples of the subgenre, with what seems like a deep influence from the Marion Zimmer Bradley end of planetary opera.


273. Sarah Ettritch, The Salbine Sisters. Ebook.

More lesbian fantasy romance! Not particularly good, but less terrible than I was expecting.


274-5. Jean Johnston, A Soldier's Duty and An Officer's Duty. Ebooks, Ace.

Space opera with a Very Special Protagonist. But entertaining for all that.


276-7. Isabel Cooper, No Proper Lady and Lessons After Dark. Ebooks.

So... that happened. Moving on.


278. Juliet Rossetti, The Escape Diaries. Ebook.

Heard of this one via @eilatan on Twitter. Is mad, in a good way, I suppose?




Today was Visit A Relative Day. I hate the holidays. Can it be done with now?
