Odds 'n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

  • A Hundred Thousand Worlds by Bob Proehl -- where geekdom and literature collide, apparently. It sounds pretty cool to me, for more, listen to this Once & Future Podcast episode and/or read this Big Idea post. I'm hoping to post about this soon. Y'know, once I read the thing.
  • Granted by Michelle Merrill -- blah
  • Let There Be Linda by Rich Leder -- a very strong and strange black comedy, you might have noticed the 200 posts here the other day about it. Give it a shot.
  • The Quest for Merlin: Magimakía by Rafael Lovato -- the first installment in a new YA trilogy
  • In Twenty Years by Allison Winn Scotch -- a Big Chill-esque novel that'll be charming, thoughtful, semi-depressing, and tinged with hope. Or so I guess, that seems to be Allison Winn Scotch's thing.
