[sticky entry] Sticky: Navigation

A blog for reviewing books, and possibly other things.

I like: fantasy, sci-fi, meaty world-building, challenging societal constructs, interesting forms and formats, short stories, socially conscious writers and worlds (art is always political), indie comics, fancy prose.

-

Tags are here to help you find things. I tag by:
- author/artist/studio/etc. (whichever creator(s) are applicable)
- genre (as best as I can determine)
- format (which is sometimes like length)
- series (when applicable)

Anticipated in 2017

Anticipated in 2017 (& Beyond)

Books I'm looking forward to in 2017. That usually means a sequel or new work by an author whose work I'm already familiar with. Occasionally it also includes a new or debut novel by an author that comes highly recommended.
