Your Questions for the Author Answered

Although it’s been a while since I posted on my reading, it’s not because I haven’t been reading, but because I’ve read a greater percentage of books, in my opinion, not worth mentioning. Among the better books I’ve read over the past months are: Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse and The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang. In this category, also, is Troy Carrol Butcher’s Lies of Descent, which I read as an advance bound manuscript that won’t be published until next August.

Books that weren’t quite as good, but that I enjoyed for various reasons included: Linesman by S. K. Dunstall; Afterwar by Lilith Saintcrow; Planetside by Michael Mammay; Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyon [which won’t be released until next February]; and The Lost Puzzler by Eyal Kless, who is also an internationally performing classical violinist [the U.S. release is in January].
