So Far So Read (Books Read 2007)

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on August 1, 2007

This is actually an incomplete list, as I’ve not been tracking the re-reads (which have included a pile of Jennifer Crusie and Daniel Keys Moran’s Continuing Time novels), nor the books borrowed and read whilst staying at friends – ‘s book room is especially good!)

    Congratulations on 50. You can now spend the rest of the year reading proper books.

  2. sbisson said,

    ALL books are proper

  3. purplecthulhu said,

    I never managed to track down more than three of the Continuing Time books (Emerald Eyes, The Long Run and Dancers IIRC). Did any more get published?

  4. sbisson said,

    Sadly no.

    Or rather not yet. His blog says he’s going to be putting up Players: The AI War online soon. The earlier books will be there too. I’m not sure if he’ll be doing the same for Crystal Wind, but here’s hoping…

    I read one of his earlier I think self published books a while back – Terminal Freedom written with his sister Jodi. Sadly it was not good 😦

    Grief, I read that Star Trek fotonovel back in the 1970s.

    Halfway through the Rowling; read about one-third of the stories in the Solaris anthology; have the Talbot graphic novel and three of Jansson’s non-Moomin books in my “to do” stack.

    Huh. I’m only up to 36 so far


  8. razorsmile said,

    37. I forgot to count Black Man.

    The concluding volume of Kage Baker’s “The Company” novels, The Sons of Heaven, came out a couple of weeks ago; I was somewhat amused by the synchronicity of reading that on the weekend when nearly everyone else in fandom was reading the seventh and final volume of a certain other series. I thought it was an excellent ending, pulling together a majority of the loose threads from the course of the story-arc, though I’ll admit I’m not always the most critical of readers.
