Am reading Blood and Gold, A Storm of Swords Part 2 of A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, and picking through Morgoth's Ring & The Peoples of Middle-Earth from HoME.

I like to check out a dozen assorted from various libraries and then race the due date in order to finish w/o being fined. Books I buy just sit...

Finally finished Rosemary Sutcliff's "Sword at Sunset," her 500 pages Arthurian magnum opus. I found her juveniles very good and fast reads - did a dozen or so last year - but this one took months, there are powerful passages but it is loooong.

Then I did a fast read of Jane Yolen's "Odysseus in the Serpent Maze," which is one of four "Young Heroes" books - the others (Atalanta, Jason, Hippolyta)beckon.

I've also been reading Isaac Asimov's history books - as to be expected they are thorough, clear, and enjoyable. I'm in the middle og his account of the American Revolution - did you know Benedict Arnold had reasons to be a sore head, not that that excuses treason... - and last week he was leading me through Ancient Greece and the Roman Republic before that.

I was at the library today, and also picked up Avram Davidson's "The Other Nineteenth Century" - I've heard good things about this author for a while, now I'll see how he stacks up.

And I'd bought 4 or 5 Heinlein juveniles at the used book store.

So I have many choices as to what I will dive into next!

Juliet McKenna The Einarrin series. It's good for light reading but not much else.
Read the Elder Gods by Eddings last week. It is ok but more like the Elenium than the Belgariad.

I just finished reading Take a Thief by Mercedes Lackey. It was a typical ML book. Not great, but fun to read when I need a brainless book.

I started reading some of Judith Tarr's books over my holiday break. I really enjoyed them, but get too sucked into them to read her stuff while I'm in school. I'd never get any school stuff done. The last book I read by her was Lord of Two Lands.

1. Iain M. Banks (rereading) after finishing his new one, The Algebraist.

2. The new Frederick Pohl.

3. Hard to say. The list of books published or to be published in Locus, recommendations from Amazon, browsing through the books stores, wandering through my bookshelves to see what I have forgotten about.

Working through McCafrey's Pern series. Good books (what I've read so far) but there are so many of them. You got to admire how the author manages to take these little non-events and make a story out of them.

A Planet Called Treason by Orson Scott Card. A really weird book but intriguing and well-written with believable characters.

I'm just about to finish Alvin Journeyman by Orson Scott Card. I'll probably read the few other books in the series before I move onto something else.

Rereading sword of truth series

I've just finished Jim Butcher's 7th (or is it 8th) in the DRESDEN FILES series, PROVEN GUILTY -- hefty themes here and I will definitely be reviewing it in my sf review column for the New Age Magazine, The Monthly Aspectarian. After being printed, the columns are archived for free reading on their website (lightworks.com) and on my own site simegen.com/reviews/rereadablebooks

A 2 hour pilot based on THE DRESDEN FILES is to be on the sci fi channel in summer 2006.

Jennifer Roberson's new one, KARAVANS is really good, and I'm almost done with Dawn Cook's THE DECOY PRINCESS which is very spirited and not so heavy on the Romance that "real life" is ignored. It's an ACE Fantasy.

It seems the readership is very much fascinated with issues revolving around Power -- how to get it, how and when to use it (or not), and what it's really good for.

Has anyone else noticed a theme running through major novel series and TV shows lately?

I just finished TALL DARK AND DEAD by Tate Hallaway Berkley Books -- it's a hoot if you know anything about the New Age community.

I'm currently reading an e-book, THE HOUSE OF THE ROSE Book II, HOUSE OF MEMORY, a review copy -- forthcoming at awe-struck.net May 15th, 2006. Look up the author Michaela August on their website or at fictionwise.com. THE HOUSE OF THE ROSE series is superior in all ways -- set during the Crusades, mystical, -- ordinary people caught up in extreme power-intrigue-magic situations.

I expect to review both these titles.
