New books! Shiny stories! I acquired two Books of Size at the July KGB Fantastic Fiction reading, and they are wonderful. And I finally finished the nonfiction summer read – was entirely worth it too. Lots of travel this summer, which meant lots of reading time.
What have you been reading?
Here are some of mine – both book-sized and short stories. The short stories were particularly plentiful and amazing this summer.
