I’ve really enjoyed the few episodes of Divya’s podcast that I’ve had time to listen to. I’m really interested to see what her writing is like.

Meanwhile, ‘My Heart is a Chainsaw’ sounds like something Swans or Nine Inch Nails would’ve composed. Never judge a book by its title, I’ve been told by master booksellers… but I judged Mo Hayder’s ‘Birdman’ by its title, and completely missed out on all the hype of what was, arguably, one of the best horror mystery suspense novels of that year.

Machinehood was quite fun, if you think you’d be interested in something like that, you will enjoy it.
I loved Stephen Graham Jones’ “The Only Good Indian” and I love the title “My Heart is a Chainsaw” — definitely looking forward to that one.
(I also want to know what that Subterranean Press book with no title on the spine is…)

The title “Zoe Rosenthal is Not Lawful Good” did have the effect of getting me to go look it up. I’m not sure I’ll read it, but A+ for an interesting, attention-getting title.

A Question of Navigation, by Kevin Hearne; I looked at it since I’m interested in learning more about celestial navigation, but the reviews say it’s short, funny and frivolous, perfect for just now, so maybe I’m in on it. The title and premise also reminds me of Have Spacesuit Will Travel, one of my favorite Heinleins.

Reading “Wings of Fury” from the library right now (well, right before I put down the kindle and picked up the iPad to check the news). Pretty absorbing.
