What the staff is reading this week,
Alan: "Right now I'm reading THE WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN, edited by David Drake, Jim Baen, and Eric Flint. It's a very idiosyncratic collection of early science fiction stories chosen on the basis of what, for the editors, changed how they looked at SF and the world in general. It's completely filled with gems, many of which haven't been reprinted since they first appeared in magazines in the 50s and 60s."
Cary: "Was reading, but gave up on MABINGONIAN TETRALOGY by Evangeline Walton. Am reading ETIQUETTE & ESPIONAGE by Gail Carriger, and (on & off) GOD SAVE THE QUEEN by Kate Locke."
Claud: "ALTERED CARBON, Richard Morgan, and SORCERY AND CECILIA, Patricia Wrede."
Heather: "Finally started A FEAST FOR CROWS."
Jude: "I'm reading an advance copy of PIRATE CINEMA by Cory Doctorow, which so far seems like an older, grittier version of LITTLE BROTHER. I'm also reading MY HORIZONTAL LIFE: A COLLECTION OF ONE-NIGHT STANDS by Chelsea Handler, which is hilarious."
