On Wednesday from 12:30 to 1:30 EST, Lev Grossman will be doing a live chat at Penguin’s Water Cooler site. Lev Grossman is a book critic for Time magazine as well as the author of the newly released fantasy novel The Magicians, which debuted at #9 on the New York Times bestseller list. Lev Grossman is also this week’s guest over at Babel Clash, the Borders Sci Fi blog.

I’ve heard so many good things about The Magicians and am looking forward to reading it. It was on my list of reads for this month so I plan to start on it as soon as I finish reading The Drowning City.
