November 2011

Believe it or not, I did find time to read in November. Books read:

  1. Medieval romance and the construction of heterosexuality. Louise M. Sylvester.
  2. The loathly lady in “Thomas of Erceldoune”. William P. Albrecht.
  3. The Song of Roland. Glyn Burgess, ed.
  4. Fairies in Medieval Romance. James Wade.
  5. Voices. Ursula K. Le Guin.
  6. Bellwether. Connie Willis.
  7. Edgewood. Kelly R. Ledbetter.

Best (only) epic: The Song of Roland
Best (only) sequel: Voices
Best new read: Edgewood

No, I’m not just being biased since Edgewood was written by my best friend. It really is one of the best fantasy novels I’ve read: not only well written, but with beautiful description, excellent storytelling, and a fresh and original story. I inhaled it (I had to, since she only finished it yesterday!). Our novels are going to be competing against each other in the very near future, and I fully expect her to succeed. Well done, Kelly! I look forward to rereading it several more times in the next few months.
