After steadily whittling away at a stack of books acquired from Paperbackswap.com, there was a brief period I was living book to book, unsure of what I would read next. That’s all over now. In order of acquisition, I now have to read:
- The Underground House Book
- The Golden Torc
- Bloody Hell in America
- Kissing Mister Quimper
- Counting to None
- The Invisible Kingdom
- The Mirage
Numbers 2, 3 and 8 are all library books, so they’ll have to be taken care of first. 3 is an inter-library loan, so that’s to be read toute suite. It’s currently in progress, as is 2.
4 through 7 are volumes ofThe Invisibles comic series by Grant Morrison et al. It’s been a while since I left off with that series, but I think I can pick up the threads again with sufficient ease. If not, there’s Wikipedia.
8 was a complete surprise. I don’t remember requesting it, but The Mirage was waiting for me at the Fletcher Free when I picked up The Golden Torc. A delightful surprise, as I placed it on my vague intentions list, as I do all of Matt Ruff’s books, but a surprise nonetheless.
