  • Sidelines Women in SF&F Month: Lois McMaster Bujold

    Today I’m absolutely thrilled to have a guest post from one of the great modern masters of genre writing, Lois McMaster Bujold! Her mastery of and influence on science fiction and fantasy are hard to overstate. Her best known work, the Vorkosigan Saga, is a series of novels, novellas, and short stories that is massive in scope but executed with finely crafted attention to the people that make up her universe.  She has penned may other stories as well though: […]

  • YA Speculative Fiction Giveaway Women in SF&F Month: Giveaway and Week Two Guests

    This last week was a wonderful start to Women in SF&F 2013, thanks to all the contributors and their great guest posts! In case you missed any of the articles, they’re included in this post. I am also announcing the guests for the upcoming week and giving away seven speculative fiction books written by women. First, I’d like to bring your attention to another series that is going on this month that you may be interested in if you’ve been […]

  • The Book Smugglers Header Women in SF&F Month: Ana and Thea from The Book Smugglers

    Today’s guests are Ana and Thea from The Book Smugglers! These two probably need no introduction from me, but I’ll give you three reasons why you should read their wonderful blog anyway: They post at least once a day so there is always something new and interesting to read on their site. Not only do they have a great quantity of posts, but they maintain great quality with their intelligent, funny reviews and articles. They have excellent taste in books […]

  • Memory Review of Memory by Lois McMaster Bujold

    A brief note on the Vorkosigan books before I get into Memory: Memory is the tenth book out of fourteen total in the Miles Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster Bujold.  That is, it’s tenth in chronological order beginning with the prequels about Miles’s parents and including the books that do not feature Miles.  It may seem odd to include the latter two, but they are still in the series omnibus editions along with the other books so I’ve been reading […]

  • The Leaning Pile of Books

    It’s my first leaning pile of books post on the new site!  I’ve also finished a draft of a review of The Spirit Thief by Rachel Aaron so I’m hoping to have my first book review at the new site up on Tuesday.  Today I’m hoping to get most of the way through a review of Elfland by Freda Warrington as well. Before getting to the books, I just wanted to mention a couple of bargains I just noticed at […]

  • The Leaning Pile of Books

    This week I got three books to add to the pile (well, I guess technically my husband got one but it’s in a series we both read so I’ll include it). Good thing I’ve actually been reading more books this month than the last few… The Demon King by Cinda Williams ChimaThis is the first book in a young adult fantasy trilogy, The Seven Realms. I’ve wanted to read this ever since I read Thea’s review at The Book Smugglers […]
