You don't know the half of it.

Quite a list! Busy, busy, busy!

I've read 17 of them! And enjoyed every one! (finished Nightchild last night)

You are amazing.

Alvaro Zinos-Amaro said...

This is a staggering list. Wonderful. Here's hoping that you don't slow down one bit in 2010!

Lou Anders said...

Ha, slow down?
We're upping the number of books again!

I heard you talking about quite a few of these books ar Orycon and put lots of them on my buy/read list, but the way you talked about _Sasha_ really resonated with me and moved it up to the very top. You said that the way the characters/cultures interacted was like a symphony and that you would like your daughters to read it.

I can say that it definitely didn't disappoint! It's a very enjoyable read. I loved his descriptions throughout the book, and I'm really looking forward to the next one.

Thank you so much for taking the time to come by and tell me that. It really really helps to know that talking up the book in a convention setting helps connect readers to the book, and even better to learn that my opinion of Joel's genius is shared. Book two comes out in March. I will be showing off the full cover spread on the Pyr blog later today or tomorrow.
