Silent Red Hydrogen Shadows: A Confederation of Fairies and Lions

What the staff is reading this week:

Alan: "I'm continuing my semi-abusive relationship with David Weber by reading STORM FROM THE SHADOWS.  His stuff really is sort of addictive for me -- which is what allows the relationship to be abusive, after all."

Cary: "THE SILENT LAND by Graham Joyce and THE GOOD FAIRIES OF NEW YORK by Martin Millar."

Claud: "TO LIE WITH LIONS, Dorothy Dunnett; and RED MARS, Kim Stanley Robinson."

Heather: "THE MISTS OF AVALON by Marion Zimmer Bradley."

Jude: "I just finished a re-read of NIGHTSHIFTED by Cassie Alexander (one of my favorite new paranormal series. . .syphilitic were-dragon FTW!) and now I'm reading THE ANNALS OF SAN FRANCISCO by Frank Soulé, John H. Gihon, M.D., and James Nisbet and very slowly starting an advance copy of THE HYDROGEN SONATA by Iain M. Banks, because I don't want it to be over too soon."

Naamen: "I just finished Jean Johnson's AN OFFICER'S DUTY (which I enjoyed very much) and now I'm reading A CONFEDERATION OF VALOR by Tanya Huff.  I'm just in the mood for female Marines.  Wow, that sounded terrible."


  1. Ugh, Red Mars. Love the concept, but it's really hard to focus when the main characters change repeatedly.

  2. Hi Cameron,

    You know, I'm with you. Red Mars was such a great read that I stopped right there. But we're in the minority. Jude for one just loves those books and many of my other customers do too.

    Oh well, that's what makes horseraces (and good bookstores).

    Thanks for commenting,
