The sun’s hot, the water’s warm, and I’m in Florida again on a work trip, working the graveyard shift with all the other creatures of the night. Perfect opportunity to read lots and lots of books. I’ll start with three (Three! Three books! Ah-ha-ha-ha!), and append additional tomes as required:
Flashpoint, by Frank Creed (apocalyptic cyberpunk, with a dash of humor)
Magic Street, by Orson Scott Card (contemporary fantasy, ’cause there’s magic around every corner, if you just look for it)
The Looking Glass Wars, by Frank Beddor (YA Fantasy…yes, Virginia, there was a real Alice who inspired Alice in Wonderland, and there’s also a real Wonderland, and…hey, waitaminnit…)
added, 6/12: Narcissu, by Tomo Kataoka (visual novel, literary, tragedy. Two terminal cancer patients in Japan go on a road trip. Have a box of kleenex handy, and don’t read it alone at night)
added, 6/30: The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, by Alexander McCall Smith. Precious Ramotswe opens a detective agency in Botswana and solves the small and large mysteries that come her way with style and confidence. Now a television series on HBO. Read the book first.
