Commentary on Campbell nominees?|
I've read Seanan McGruire. I enjoyed her first novel. I only read about half of the second one. I figured out the plot less than halfway through and wasn't engaged enough in the "getting to the end" to want to read through the rest, so I skipped to somewhere near the end to read some of the exciting resolution bits. I'll check out her third one in the series because I'm interested to see where some of the relationships go.
I've also read Souless by Gail Carriger and enjoyed it quite a bit. I have avoided vampire fiction over the years. I'm just not into the popular fiction that glorifies and eroticizes vampires. Souless doesn't do that. Victorian mystery, steampunk, plus a dash of Jane Austen and ___ (another author that I'm totally blocking on) -- well, I had to check it out.
I just read two of Saladin Ahmed's short stories. What an amazing writer!
