Have you read Beloved or Jazz?Finished Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison. It was pretty good, but I think I'm just not a big Morrison fan.
Now on to Shakespeare for Squirrels by Christopher Moore. Wanted something lighter for the first time in a while.
I read a stack of Neal Asher about 10 years ago. No idea where I got to in his stuff, and even less clue where I might start again.I've just finished a short story by Neal Asher, Proctors, it's mainly about a far future interaction between the last remnants of the Polity and The Owner.
Thus inspired I went through my old files and Yes! I still have the Owner trilogy.
I've started a re-read of book one, The Departure, it's been so long ago that most of the details have been forgotten so it's like a brand new story
I got a bit out of sorts when I was reading the intro.....
"Wait, this guy's just doing an abridged version of some old book?"
I then went online trying to find the original by S. Morgenstern - I feel a bit silly now!
Many years ago, when I read the novel -- long before it became a film, and when the paperback called it a "hot fairy tale," which is misleading -- I got to the part where the "editor" tells you where to write in to get a copy of a scene they left out of the "original" and actually wrote to it, since I appreciated the joke. I got a very funny form letter back, explaining why they still couldn't supply the missing scene. I don't know if the publisher will still respond that way.
