As per usual, I have a huge stack of books awaiting me. All cover pictures contain links.
I've been chomping at the bit to get into the sequel to Jemisin's "The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms", I loved it so much. Reading it now, and trying not to hurry so I can enjoy it's delicious goodness!
Having read "How To Suppress Women's Writing", I've had Russ' "The Female Man" on my list of Must Read Classic Feminist SF for quite a while.
Helen is part of my monthly writing group I meet with, and I'm quite tickled to have a book on my list to read by someone I know.
I've been reading Catherynne M Valente's blog and short stories, and following her on Twitter for a while, and have been intrigued by her rich prose. She currently has a new book just released called "The Habitation of the Blessed", but I had this one recommended to me originally for it's explorations of gender and sexuality.
Recommended by Tansy Rayner Roberts, I'll be adding this one to my collection of text books and anthologies about Feminist SF&F.
Recommended via a discussion of the decades best female authored SF at Tor.com
I've been reading this one on and off over the last few weeks. I will finish it eventually, because it is a seminal piece of feminist SF, but I'm finding it a little haphazard in quality. However, I plan to blog about the cover of the edition I have, because it's a shocking beauty of 80s cover porn!
Stoked to find this one in a second hand book store.
More second hand bookstore goodies. I like reading the short stories of an author sometimes to get a feel for their style.
Finished, but I wanted to put this on the list to say how much I love it. It's not very often I devour a book in a day, but when I picked up Varley's "Titan", I was blow away by Cirocco Jones. What an awesome character. And the issues he tackles - wow! This book has very quickly become one of my Top Ten of all time. Cover shown here isn't the early 80s version I found in a second hand bookstore.
