The Reading Game #1: What are you reading now?

It's time for a new (and mostly random) feature on this blog:  the reading game!  Basically, I tell you what I'm currently reading and then hope everyone will do the same in the comments!

I am reading the following:

Kafkaesque edited by James Patrick Kelley and John Kessel
After the Apocalypse by Maureen McHugh
Death's Heretic by James L. Sutter
Shadow Ops:  Control Point by Myke Cole

How about you?

  1. I'm reading the rather strange and wonderful number9dream by David Mitchell...

  2. I am reading Iron Council by China Mieville. About half way through, I'm convinced it's his best of the Bas-Lag books.

    I did a narration of a short story of James L. Sutter's over at StarShipSofa called Faithful Servants. I believe it's a companion piece. The premise seemed pretty cool. I'll be curious to know how a full length novel reads.

  3. I am halfway through The Diviner by Melanie Rawn.

    It is supposed to be a prequel to the novel The Golden Key, but I'm enjoying Diviner just fine without having read Key first.

  4. Anonymous9:41 PM

    I'm reading The Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons (Hyperion was absolutely brilliant) and Embassytown by Mieville. God that man is God.

  5. Currently reading The Zen Gun by Barrington J. Bayley (totally random used book store find, the title sold me), the Count Brass omnibus by Michael Moorcock, and The Strange Tale of Spring-Heeled Jack by Mark Hodder.

  6. In audio: Earthbound by Joe Haldeman.

    In print: Zone One by Colson Whitehead.

  7. I'm reading Fenrir by M.D. Lachlan and Bossypants by Tina Fey. Next up on the list is the new Mark Hodder, Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon.

    I really want to read After the Apocalypse by Maureen McHugh, I'm really looking forward to your review!

  8. AmyTree: Is that one of his new ones?

    Jonathan: Oh! Mieville is wonderful. Oh, and that's cool about the narration!

    Greyweather: I've never heard of The Diviner. Will have to check it out!

    Adam: You would read those books :P

    Dave B.: Those sound like fantastic books. I'll check out The Zen Gun for sure.

    Sam M-B: Haldeman = amazing. Oh, and let me know what you think of the Whitehead.

    redhead: If you can get After the Apocalypse now, I would. Don't bother waiting for my review. Buy it. It's amazingly good! So far, I've only felt "meh" about one story, but almost all of them are sheer brilliance.
