I get a lot of people who email me and ask what I am reading. Some give no reason for asking, others explain that they would like an idea of who to read for ideas in their own writing.
So I thought I would share a bit about what I am reading now. If you want to keep up with everything I have read, you can find me on Goodreads.com.
Every day I read Daily Science Fiction. They email a short (often flash length) story to me Monday through Friday. I find it is a great short read and I usually enjoy them. If you don’t get them by email they do post them to their website after a bit. I won’t review them, because that’s not the point. I will tell you which ones I enjoyed the most.
I also read Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine, but I have not received the new issue yet.
Recently I enjoyed these stories for DSF (in no particular order):
Fields of Ice by Jay Caselberg
Ned Thrall by Amalia Dillin
A Great Destiny by Eric James Stone
Call Center Blues by Carrie Cuinn
I Kill Monsters by Nathaniel Matthews Lee
Tomorrow’s Dawn by Milo James Fowler
There are many more I like, but those are the most recent.
In the books category I recently finished, Empress of Eternity
by L.E. Modessit Jr. It was a great read. My review
in on Goodreads, so you can read it there. Its the second book I have read by Modessit Jr. and his style was close to the same in both books. I think he always an entertaining read.
I am currently reading Black Prism by Brent Weeks. I have not read anything by Weeks, but I had not read any Fantasy is a very long time. I saw this book and it was the first of a series and a newer release. So far I find the story very compelling and I am enjoying every page. I am not very far into it and it is already a page turner. It seems promising.
Of course I list all the books I read on Goodreads, so please come by and you can keep see what I am reading now. If you don’t use Goodreads I recommend it. There are a ton of good ideas on there if you are looking for a new book.
