On late Feb & March reads:
I have to write a love letter to The Spiritwalker trilogy at some point. The Just City had me put on a philosophical hat. Kings Rising was the perfect ending to a trilogy. Also, a shoutout to CW for writing an amazing review on For Today, I Am A Boy, which made me pick it up. I found scifi reads like Immersion to be inspiring. On a different note, I’ve looked to a few non-fiction books for a perspective on anxiety in the creative writing process.
I did manage to review Letters to Tiptree, My Real Children and The Wicked and the Divine Volume 3 because I often prioritise review copies over other books for blog discussion. Though I do want to share some thoughts on Clariel, Becoming Kirrali Lewis and Serpentine when I have time to spare.
Also, here’s a few SF short stories I’ve read/listened to recently:
- Seventh Day of the Seventh Moon by Ken Liu (a retelling of my favourite folktale)
- The Contemporary Foxwife by Yoon Ha Lee
- Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers by Alyssa Wong
- Three Cups of Grief, by Starlight by Aliette de Bodard
