I just finished The Player of Games today, so I’ll be closing down the what to read next poll in a minute. The winner is Stephen Lawhead’s Hood so that will be the next book I read.

This weekend I should have a review of the first Dreams of Inan book, A Kind of Peace, up. Sometime after that, I’ll be reviewing The Player of Games by Iain M. Banks, which I loved. It was the first book I’ve read by Banks and it exceeded my expectations. I’m very glad some of the Culture books are being reprinted in the U.S. since now I have to get the rest of them to read.
