Wanda's Book Reviews

I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles.  (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).

Currently reading

At the Mountains of Madness and Other Works of Weird Fiction
H.P. Lovecraft, D.M. Mitchell
The Severed Streets
Paul Cornell
What the #@&% Is That?: The Saga Anthology of the Monstrous and the Macabre
John Joseph Adams, Douglas Cohen
The Green Man
Kingsley Amis
The Gap Into Conflict: The Real Story
Stephen R. Donaldson

I spent the weekend at When Words Collide, a writers' and readers' conference here in Calgary.  It was fun.  I've added a lot of new authors to my "to investigate" list.  I also spent more money than I should have in the merch room.

 

But I feel like I didn't get a weekend.  Interacting with people all weekend long just sucked my energy faster than I could recharge (and I left early both Saturday and Sunday).

 

Next year's dates are already set and Guy Gavriel Kay will be one of the guests of honour!!  I will be buying my ticket just as soon as they update the website.  And I'm glad to have a quiet week upcoming.
