What the staff is reading this week:
Alan: "Just about finish FORGE OF DARKNESS by Steven Erikson. It's a dense book (no surprise there) and I've not had enough reading time in the past week to make me happy. Next up is going to be Neal Asher's second Owner novel, ZERO POINT."
Cary: "DREAMS AND SHADOWS by C. Robert Cargill."
Claud:"BLUE MARS and THE MARTINS, by Kim Stanley Robinson -- *amazing* series; and IN THE SHADOW OF THE SWORD, by Tom Holland -- a fascinating look at the birth of Islam in the context of late antiquity."
Jude: "I just finished WHERE IS JOE MERCHANT?, a Carl Hiassen-esque novel by Jimmy Buffet, and now I'm reading THE GIRL WHO FELL BENEATH FAIRYLAND AND LED THE REVELS THERE by Cat Valente."
