August Summary

I decided to try and get this done on time/early rather than late this month.  As usual here are a list of titles I reviewed in August:

Heretics by S. A. Swann
The Office of Shadow by Matthew Sturges
The Left Hand of God by Paul Hoffman (audio)
The Grave Thief by Tom Lloyd
A Book of Tongues by Gemma Files
Mission of Honor by David Weber
Warp Riders by The Sword (music)
The Black Prism by Brent Weeks

I’m currently working my way through Col Buchanan’s Farlander and Arthur C. Clarke’s Rendezvous With Rama.  The latter title is sort of a response to Mark C. Newton’s recent post on Genre Diversity (itself an extension of an early post about frontlist titles) calling for more coverage of backlist and indie published titles.  While I’ve done a smattering of indie titles, typically in the horror genre, I’m less frequent with backlist titles.  While I can’t promise the sort of epic and in depth reviews that the folks over at the SFF Masterworks blog are producing (Larry’s reviews in particular always make me feel bad about my own general laziness) I’ll at least make an effort to cover some more “classic” and backlist titles in the coming months.  I’m contemplating a horror binge come October (it being the month for that kind of stuff) so if anyone out there has suggestions let me know.

One thought on “August Summary

  1. First, I’m jealous that you got to read “The Black Prism.”
    I have read some good and bad things about “The Left Hand of God.” I keep meaning to read it but the lukewarm reviews have allowed me to push it to the back of my TBR stack.

    Horror month in October sounds interesting. I really have no suggestions for that because I rarely read horror, but it sounds like an endeavor I might participate in, as well. I’d be interested to learn about what “suggested reading” you get.
