I had a little book shopping spree this evening. Jeffrey Ford’s World Fantasy award winning The Shadow Year and Catherynne M. Valente’s The Orphans Tale – Volume 1. I have read Jeffrey Ford’s short fiction and I’m excited to read him at novel length. Cat Valente has impressed me with her online serial novel, although I’ve followed it only sporadically. This makes up for all the books I resisted buying in San Jose.
Speaking of Cat Valente and her serial novel, the last chapter of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland has been posted.
Rachel Swirsky impresses with A Memory of Wind on Tor.com. I find the illustration quite beautiful.
