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).
Okay, here I am on square 8 (Author's last name begins with the letters E, F, G, or H.)
And I have just completed The Fossil Hunter by Shelley Emling. So I get to roll 2 dice!
Results: 4 + 5 = 9, which takes me to square 17. Task? Genre: Horror.
I don't have anything in my reading queue that fits this prompt, so I'm just going to get going on Snow Crash.
