  • Visiting Another World - Welcome to Westeros

    Lately, my reading time has been spent in Westeros , a world created by George R. R. Martin for his series, A Song of Ice and Fire . My son is a longtime Martin fan, and many library customers are as well: all are anxiously awaiting Book 5 in the set. Meanwhile, HBO is producing a TV series based on...

  • "Perdido Street Station": a steampunk classic

    If you're in the mood for something really different, try this marvelously inventive fantasy novel. British author China Mieville (who has a PhD in International Relations from the London School of Economics) self-describes it as "basically a secondary world fantasy with Victorian era technology...

  • The Girl With Glass Feet by Ali Shaw

    I just finished this book a few days ago, and I still have yet to find the right words to describe it. Here is what I wrote on GoodReads right after I read it: At once monochrome, dull, and gray and at the same time hauntingly beautiful, The Girl with Glass Feet is a timeless love story doomed from the...

  • Colorful Fantasy Adventure

    A few months ago I realized it had been a long time since I'd read any science fiction or fantasy novels. When I started making a list of titles to try, a friend recommended Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson . Now I'm recommending it to you because this is a book that has everything: mystery, romance...

  • More Supernatural Love Stories

    Love Is Hell. That's the title of this book of short stories, each one by a different author and each one containing a supernatural being. And as in all good supernatural love stories, it takes the girl a while to discover that the boy she is interested in is indeed not exactly human. Scott Westerfield's...

  • Twilight Series not part of my Highlights

    I have to say up front I listened to these books on audiobook, so no skipping the repetition. I wanted to like this book for being a huge success for the publishing world and furthering the public's interest in such fantastical goings on, but couldn't get past the juvenile nature of our protagonist...

  • Are You In the Zone?

    Do you have a favorite Twilight Zone episode? As a child I loved Miniature, which starred Robert Duvall (just after his appearance in To Kill a Mockingbird ) as a shy young man who falls in love with a doll in a museum dollhouse display. There are many fine scripts and skilled performances in this venerable...

  • Stephanie Meyer Isn't the Only One

    If you liked reading about Bella and Edward in the Twilight series, take a look at Impossible by Nancy Werlin. There are no vampires or werewolves, but there is one threatening fantasy character who lurks throughout. He seems so sympathetic and definitely compelling to most everyone he meets. Lucy Scarborough...
