Recommended Reading List: April 2012

I promised I would get the Recommended Reading List up by the 10th of every month, but some hacker conspired against me. Rather than clutter up everything the week that I came back, I left this one for the end of the month. Here’s the best stuff I read in April of 2012. Despite this […]

Recommended Reading List: March, 2012

I was extremely busy in March, but somehow I managed to read a lot of good stuff as well. Some of my reading came at a workshop at the end of February, beginning of March. If the stories that I liked appear in print, I told the students to contact me with that information. So […]

Recommended Reading List: February 2012

February went by much too fast. I got a lot of reading done, but not as much as I expected. I was (and still am) on an urban fantasy kick. I’m finding that most of what I read is predictable and easy to skim, even series that I read all the way through. I’m not […]

Recommended Reading List: January 2012

Got a lot of reading done in January. Much of it had to do with a novella I was working on, so I dipped in and out of a dozen research books. I also started a lot of books that I didn’t finish. Two of the books were from long-running series. One of those books […]

Recommended Reading List: December 2011

With this, I’ll be caught up on all of my Recommended Reading lists for 2011. January’s should post in the first 10 days of February. I’ll have one more overall reading post, a numbers post, in a week or two, and then I can put 2011 behind me. Here’s the list, with everything on it […]

Recommended Reading List: November 2011

I’m doing my best to catch up on the Recommended Reading lists, so that I can be on schedule in 2012. Here’s the good stuff I read in November. All that you read down there, I wrote in November itself (or early December).  *** I wish I could say that things settled down more in […]

Recommended Reading List: October 2011

I got very far behind in posting my Recommended Reading lists in 2011. I’ll try to do better in 2012 by posting the month after the list was compiled. However, I have to catch up on 2011 first. So here’s October. Everything you see below was written then. Enjoy! —— We had about six emergencies […]

Recommended Reading List: September 2011

I got back to reading in September, but bumped along on my choices. I had trouble concentrating in the first part of the month, since so much was going on in my life. I read a celebrity memoir and enjoyed it, but don’t feel it was good enough to recommend. Then I read two other […]

Special Holiday Recommended Reading List

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. This year, I’ve decided to do a compilation of past holiday recommends so that you can get them for the appropriate season. […]

Recommended Reading List: August 2011

I was well on my way to a spectacular reading month when I left to go to Worldcon in Reno. Still, managed to finish one book and start another.  Then my friend Bill died. I didn’t even read a newspaper for days. So the pickings were slim in August, but they were good pickings, just […]
