THE GOAL: READING FANTASY
Since I've got a bit of a lull before I begin my next novel, I've decided that there are just too many fascinating fantasy and pseudo-fantasy book being published this year. I want to read them all. To motivate me to do so, I'm going to write about them in my blog. Every day I'll post something about what I've read. So as to mix things up, I'll throw in some story collections and fiction anthologies. My goal is to finish all of these books by the end of the year.
If anyone has any other suggestions of books that came out this year that deserve a read, let me know. I should say up front that I cannot stomach reading the Stephenson, no matter how good. He's just gotten too turgid for my tastes. But, let me know what else I might be missing out on...
