    July '18 Reading - What We Read in the Shadows

    I'm reading Alterworld by D. Rus. It's basically a (very) male teenage fantasy of living in a video RPG.

    The Wild Cards Thread

    There will be another book with some of the same characters. It won't be a triad, I don't think.

    The Wild Cards Thread

    No! This is an exception that occurred because some other book was cancelled. I *think*. However, in this case, since the book is mostly based in the UK, I feel it is very appropriate

    The Wild Cards Thread

    Just in case you don't know yet, the new Wild Cards book, Knaves Over Queens, is now available in Ireland, the UK and Australia. It will hit North America next year. As I have some work in this volume, I'm getting a copy to give away. I'm not sure if I'm allowed post a competition here, but you can see the details in my twitter, my blog or my facebook feed. I'm sorry it's only one copy

    I have started Nina Allan's The Rift.
  6. Hi there, did you ever book that house? Are you still considering it?

    May - Reading 2018 - Have another?

    I'm reading American War by Omar El Akkad. It's about a US civil war that begins in 2074. I'm only about 20 pages in, but feeling good about it so far.

    I take it you already read his Guns of the Dawn? Very different from Children of Time, but my favourite of his books.

    Aw, thanks, REG! For myself, I'm reading Adrian Tchaikovsky's The Hyena and the Hawk.

    Thanks! As for me, Sea of Rust was an easy read. I need another as I'm travelling tomorrow. Might try Nina Allan's The Rift.
  12. I wasn't planning on attending this year due to distance, but there is now a chance that I'll be there. It would be amazing to catch up with you all

    Shashi Tharoor's Inglorious Empire was excellent. I might have a go at Children of Blood and Bone next by Tomi Adeyemi.

    I'm reading Inglorious Empire: What the British Did to India by Shashi Tharoor. Excellent, so far.

    I've been reading The Gallows Pole by Benjamin Myers, a historical novel about coin clippers. I think. Early days.

    Thanks, William! I appreciate it! Sorry, REG! I'll tell them to swim faster As for me, I haven't been very lucky with my reading of late. Even very good books aren't grabbing my attention. I think I'll need to go back to non-fiction for a while.

    Yeah. I'm feeling tempted into a reread to be honest. Maybe next month.

    I was very sad to hear that. It's a great read. Thanks for sharing it.

    I read the same two books as a pair also. I was looking for balance, I suppose. In the end, I liked them both. Hope you do too.

    He kinda liked it, for sure, but he is well aware of the horror too. He was an extraordinary individual over all, though. After you've read it, I advise you to look up the rest of his biography.
