Lots of reading this month for the anthology workshop at the end of the month, plus some line editing. I still managed to find time for some other reading, but it was a push. I got a new mystery from one of my favorites, started it, and immediately stopped. Turns out our newly retired hero has just been diagnosed with COPD. Having dealt with death—and […]
I spent the first part of January line editing a Fiction River volume, watching disaster movies, and reading romance novels. I cannot explain any of this, except that I enjoyed all of it.
Found lots of great reading in December. Here’s what I really loved.
Back on schedule, more or less. I’m scheduling these recommended reading lists as I start them, so if they seem a little incomplete, it’s because they go live whether I like it or not. No more tinkering! I’m still adding recommended books from my one-year hiatus. I’m not marking which are which, but you might be able to tell. Also in the past year, I […]
I generally post my recommended reading list a month or three after I’ve done the reading. Which means that all of the holiday stories that I read get recommended in January or February. In 2011, I decided to do a compilation of past holiday recommends so that you can get them for the appropriate season. (Please note: the stories might have shown up in other collections. I haven’t gone searching, but you might want to.)
Yeah. It’s been over a year since I’ve done a recommended reading list. It got lost in the noise of everything else I’ve been doing. I’ve had people ask for it to come back, and then I got a lovely email with an embedded photo of Puss in Boots from Shrek, hat off, begging for the list to return, and saying if I didn’t have […]

I admit: I haven’t read enough Leigh Brackett. I fell in love with her stories as I read for the women in sf anthology. I’m beginning to believe that all sf roads ride through Leigh Brackett.
I started the major reading for the women in science fiction project I’m editing for Baen Books this month. Most of what I’m reading is stuff I should have read in the past. I’m also rereading stories that I remember from twenty years ago. Some hold up. Others don’t.
I’m stunned at what I’m finding and what’s been lost. I find it overwhelming at times. But it’s such a worthwhile project and so much fun. Some of the material here duplicates what’s on the site, because I’m enjoying what I’m reading so much.
Nearly missed getting this up in May. What a busy spring. Unexpectedly busy. I did a lot of reading in April, even though it doesn’t look like it from the list below. Much of my reading was for the Fantasy workshop. Those writers did an amazing job. Unfortunately, I was not editing an anthology around this particular workshop, so I couldn’t pick up any of […]
