I’m on a vacation up north for a really, really long weekend. Not only do I have no idea what kind of internet connection I’ll have up here, but if I play my cards right I’ll be drinking wine on the beach or in a hot tub instead of internetting anyways. so in lieu of even more fun with tenses, I prescheduled a bunch of posts for you. Also, I plan to torture you with badly taken random photos.
only because I love you. and i know how much you love my posts clogging your feeds!
This blog has been around just about a year, so these are all going to be “a year, more or less” themed meme type things. Can I call something a meme? doesn’t it have to filter through the web and become that on it’s own? eh, i digress.
what awesome rock-your-world new-to-you authors have you discovered in the last year or so?
I’ve been lucky enough to discover a metric ton of awesome new and new-to-me authors who totally rocked my world in the last year or so – Lauren Beukes, Robin Hobb, Jasper Kent, Jon Armstrong, Catherynne Valente, Patrick Rothfuss, Lavie Tidhar, Ellen Kushner, and Mark Hodder, just to name a few. Some of them have been around for a while, I’m almost embarrassed that it took me this long to find them.
I don’t know what I would have done without those folks. Not enjoys as many books as I have, that’s for sure.
