Bone and Jewel Creatures by Elizabeth Bear The Leaning Pile of Books

The Leaning Pile of Books is a feature where I talk about books I got over the last week – old or new, bought or received for review consideration (often unsolicited). Since I hope you will find new books you’re interested in reading in these posts, I try to be as informative as possible. If I can find them, links to excerpts, author’s websites, and places where you can find more information on the book are included. Due to traveling […]

The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison Favorite Books of 2014

2014 was not my best year for books since I both read and reviewed fewer books than usual, especially in the second half of the year due to moving to a new state. I am hoping to read and write reviews more regularly in 2015! It wasn’t my best year in terms of quality of books read, either. Last year I rated three books 10/10 and this year not one book received that rating, although there were two 9/10 books. […]

The Moonshawl by Storm Constantine Guest Post: Storm Constantine on Inspirations for Wraeththu

Today I’m thrilled to celebrate the release of Storm Constantine’s latest Wraeththu Mythos novel with a guest post by her! The books in the original Wraeththu trilogy are among my favorite books of all time due to the beautiful writing, memorable characters, and the thoughtful examination of a world in which humanity was being replaced by a new androgynous people. While I haven’t yet gotten caught up on all these books, what I’ve read of the Wraeththu Histories are also […]
