The next novel on the agenda is Steel and Sorrow by Joshua P. Simon. I’ll probably start it sometime this weekend. I’ll refrain from saying what novel is after that; I’m going to play it by ear. I’ve got several I’m going to read this month, but I haven’t decided on the final order.
There are a couple of items that are seasonal in nature that I want to sprinkle in the mix, so I’m not going to lock myself down to any particular sequence.
One thing I am going to read a great deal of over the next few months is short fiction. In the next week, I want to review the premier issue of Nightmare magazine (I’m about a third of the way through now, and it’s great), the new fiction being posted on Black Gate, the anniversary double sized issue of Beneath Ceaseless Skies (it’s not live as of this writing, but I have a subscription and have already downloaded it), plus the inaugural stories in Eclipse Online. Jonathan Strahan was kind enough to send me advance copies of the first two stories, and I’ll be reading those over the next day or two. Plus I have a number of anthologies and single author collections sitting on the shelves I’ve been wanting to finish.
That’s plenty to keep me busy.
