Sometime in June, I want to read a book by an author who is new to me and has had a book sitting unread on my shelf for at least a year. I’m not sure which one to choose, though, so I made a poll for it. The poll will stay open until I finish The Silver Metal Lover and either Busted Flush or The Last Argument of Kings.

The options are:

J.V. Jones – A Cavern of Black Ice
Catherynne Valente – The Orphan’s Tales: In the Night Garden
Laura Resnick – In Legend Born
John Varley – Titan
Tim Powers – The Anubis Gates

Which one do you want me to read and review sometime in June?

This morning I did finish my May book (hard science fiction), The Mote in God’s Eye by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle. It took a long time to get going and I almost put it down a few times, but once it got going it was good and I ended up glad I stuck with it. I need to do some laundry and make a birthday cake so I’m not sure I’ll get to review it today, but hopefully I’ll get to review it sometime over the next week.
