Novel voting and Leftover Hugo nominated novels post

There are three novel nominees that I started and could not finish. I actually read so little of them that they do not call for an individual post per nominee. 757 more words

Review copies: Abercrombie, Brust, Erikson

Joe Abercrombie’s HALF A KING, which I’m supposed to review for Strange Horizons; Steven Brust’s HAWK (Vlad Taltos, how much do I like this series?); and Steven Erikson’s WILLFUL CHILD, which is hopefully a much better Star Trek parody than Scalzi’s REDSHIRTS was.

The larders are haunted. Spirits, they say, and wraiths! The children here do not need lessons on death; they are familiar with that journey. 1,000 more words
