What Are You Reading?


Given that today is a work holiday in the States, some lucky readers out there are hopefully using the extra time to get some reading done. That’s my plan, at least. Up above you can see my (most current) to-read stack. If all goes well, I will be reading a lot from this pile today.

So…what are you reading?

  1. The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps by Kai Ashante Wilson. Pretty interesting!

  2. Currently partway through the second book of Chris Evans’ Iron Elves trilogy, which I’m enjoying.

  3. Johannes Cabal The Necromancer, by Jonathan L. Howard, with books 2 and 3 on deck.

  4. Well, obviously right now I’m reading SF Signal! But when I’m done here, I’ll go back to reading Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell.

  5. Legion of the Damned by Deitz
    Hellbent by Priest
    The Tropic of Serpents by Brennan

    Reading both Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson and Frost On Glass by Ian R. MacLeod

  7. I’m finishing Leckie’s Ancillary Sword in print, listening-as-re-read to Heinlein’s Methuselah’s Children to/from work (so, not today!), and I may start an ebook soon as well – not sure what, yet. I’m trying to figure out if I can manage 2 books – not counting the audiobook “re-read” – or if that’s just asking for trouble.

    Looking at your stack: The Moreau books are on my list to buy! And I’ve heard good things about Nagata’s books.

    @Joe H.: I have Evans’ books but haven’t read them yet (my TBR stack is many shelves…). Good to hear they’re good!

  8. Just finished: Magic Shofts by Ilona Andrews
    Just started:
    Midian Unmade Anthology
    Killing Pretty by R. kadrey
    Zero World by Jason Hough
    edge of Dawn by M. Synod grass
    Hope to actually finish them.

  9. Just finished: Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews
    Just started:
    Midian Unmade Anthology
    Killing Pretty by R. kadrey
    Zero World by Jason Hough
    edge of Dawn by M. Synod grass
    Hope to actually finish them.

  10. Seveneves by Neal Stephenson

  11. I’m reading the second book of the “Star Trek” “Genesis Wave” series by John Vornholt, after recently completing “The Game-Players of Titan” by Philip K. Dick and “The Humanoids” by Jack Williamson.

  12. After several SF novels and short story collections in August, you caught me as I’m starting “Sherlock Holmes month” on my blog. But the next couple of books will include SHERLOCK HOLMES IN ORBIT, Holmes stories with a SF element.

  13. Fredric Jameson: The Antimonies of Realism
    Zen Cho: Sorceror to the Crown
    Teresa Frohock: In Midnight’s Silence
    Edward James: Lois McMaster Bujold (Masters of SF series)
    Walter Weiss: The Bazaar: Markets and Merchants of the Islamic World

    • Are you reading all of these, or is this your current to-be-read list? Just curious – if you’re actually reading them all at once, wow.

      • I’m nearly done with the Cho, and I’m into the Frohock and the James. The Jameson I’m reading selectively, and the Weiss is more of a flip-through than a thorough reading. Lots of wonderful photos and information about the subject!

    Red Seas under Red Skies by Scott Lynch

  15. WINDSWEPT by Adam Rakunas. Enjoying the hell out of it!

  16. Just finished Gemsigns by Stephanie Saulter and have started Binary, also by her.

    That got me interested in reading something else about designed/artificial humans so just started vN by Madeline Ashby- really good!

    We Have Always Lived In The Castle by Shirley Jackson

    Just finished sucking down “A Red Rose Chain,” Book 9 in the October Daye series by Seanan McGuire. Appropriate to mention that here, since SF Signal is where I first heard about this series, way back when the first one, “Rosemary and Rue,” first came out. Wish she’d go back ro publishing every six months instead of once a year. AAAARGH!
    Also reading the second installment in McGuire’s “Indexing” Series, chapter by chapter as it’s released.

    “Debatable Space” by Philip Palmer and “Earth Arises” by Aaron Johnson and OSC.
