March felt like a month that was relatively light on reading, though I must admit I haven’t counted up to confirm this. There was still a fair amount of stuff on the blog, though, as I shall now list.
Book of the Month
The best book I read in March came from the Arthur C. Clarke Award shortlist. Generosity by Richard Powers is a fascinating story about stories and science and being caught up in change. It’s in my top two contenders for the Clarke, with only one book on the list left to read.
No book notes this month, but quite a few full-length reviews:
- Full Dark House by Christopher Fowler
- Pub Walks in Underhill Country by Nat Segnit
- Fiction from the World SF blog, Jan-Feb 2011 [external link to The Portal]
- Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon
- Issue 1 of Night and Day magazine
- Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin
… and I finally completed Volume I of The Oxford Library of Classic English Short Stories.
