A Mid-Summer’s Reading List

I’ve been thinking. If I ever own a bookshop, I’m going to call it The Book Suppository. What do you think?

I also considered The Word Suppository, which has a nice double meaning.

While you chew on that (or not), here’s the reading list:

Just finished:

  • Chiller by Skye Hegyes
  • Tomorrow’s Promise by Kristi Lazzari
  • The Wary Traveller by M. C. Dulac



  • Blue Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson (will be on this one for a while!)
  • The Death of Eve by Shaun Penney
  • Sayeh and Zia by D. James Fortescue


Up next:

  • Brilliance by Anthony McCarten
  • Curiosity by Helen Valentina
  • The Dresden Files: Storm Front by Jim Butcher
  • Balanced in an Angel’s Eye by Shaune Lafferty Webb
  • Heavenfall by Robbie MacNiven


My recommended book of the week is M. C. Dulac’s the Wary Traveller. Now that is a fantastic and chilling bit of short fiction. I just adored it. The pacing was incredible, the story was a deft balance between folklore, horror and wanderlust. I read it over a long lunch and loved every second of it. You can find M. C. Dulac here and the book here.

Okay, as promised, here is my totally cool and not OCD spreadsheet-generated reading graph:


Blue Mars ;_; Why are you are large as Mars itself?

And one more thing for today, before the very happy weekend, here’s the smallest teaser you’re likely to see all day:

What, what? Is this like a new serial coming out in the antipodean spring? Gosh, I guess it could be. It could be that the draft is nearly finished and over the next few months we’ll be gearing up towards release. Who knows? What? The text denying the teaser is bigger than the teaser? Oh, right…

Happy Valentine’s, happy weekend, and relax uh, intensely!

  1. Wasn’t JFK shot from a book suppository?

  2. Just read your review for M. C. Dulac. Wonderful! I can’t wait to get it in my greedy little hands:)
