I’m about a fourth of the way through Jon Sprunk’s novel Blood and Iron, which hits shelves next Tuesday. It’s good, and I’m enjoying the direction this one is taking.
I’ve read the first chapter in the next book I’ll read for my Ballantine Adult Fantasy series for Black Gate, Lilith by George MacDonald. This one looks like it’s going to be good.
Lastly, I read the cover story from the current issue of Analog. “Cryptids” is an extremely well-done monster story, one of the best I’ve read in quite a while. (Yes, I have Kaiju Rising, but I haven’t gotten to it yet.) I posted the review at Futures Past and Present since the story is very much science fiction. However, I think some of you would enjoy the story, so I’m mentioning it here.
Spring Break is just over a week away, and I hope to get some things out of the way then, so stay tuned.
