License to Quill, by Jacopo della Quercia - Book Review
12, Sep

I heard many good things about License to Quill from someone whose taste I trust (my dearest fan ;-), and being a historical fiction fan the book held a natural interest.

A Hag Rises from the Abyss (Alexander Southerland, P.I., #3) by Douglas Lumsden - Book Review
08, May

I adored the previous Alex Southerland novels, so when I got the ARC for this one I practically squealed with joy. It was worth the wait!

The Man Who Bridged the Mist by Kij Johnson - Book Review
31, Jan

This novella won both Hugo and Nebula, a big distinction. I like to occasionally read what's the art-critics like in the genre, so delved in.

Sweet Silver Blues (Garrett Files #1) by Glen Cook - Book Review
30, Jan

As a lover of fantasy and detectives I've long had Glen Cook's Garrett Files on my TBR. This review is for the first in the series, but I expect to read through it this year.

The King's Gambit (SPQR #1) by John Maddox Roberts - Book Review
18, Jan

I've long had Maddox Roberts' SPQR series on my TBR list (ever since I started reading Roman whodunits - Lindsey Davis, Steven Saylor, et al), but it took some time to get to this series.

Alexander at the World's End by Tom Holt - Book Review
27, Dec

I loved Holt's more fantasy works (especially under his KJ Parker pen-name), so was eager to try his pure historical fiction.
