Novel Ideas

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Finally finished reading A Storm of Swords (book three of A Song of Ice and Fire) by George R.R. Martin and Crossroads of Twilight (book ten of The Wheel of Time) by Robert Jordan. So now I’m on book eleven of The Wheel of Time and book four of A Song of Ice and Fire. I decided I wasn’t going to read book four of A Song of Ice and Fire until the next one comes out. It has to do primarily with how Martin wrote the fourth book. I feel like it’d be too much of a cliffhanger to read the fourth book if the fifth book isn’t out yet.

Also finished reading Sorceress of the Witch World by Andre Norton. This book completes the first cycle of Witch World novels. Primarily considered a fantasy series, it’s interesting in that it has some steam punk elements and treads on the sci-fi side. Witch World is one of Andre Norton’s more popular series, though the author has written many books in her lifetime.

This is my current fiction reading list:
The Firebrand by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Downbelow Station by C.J. Cherryh
The Transition of Titus Crow (published in Brian Lumley’s Mythos Omnibus) by Brian Lumley
Imperial Lady by Andre Norton and Susan Shwartz
Knife of Dreams (book eleven of The Wheel of Time) by Robert Jordan

Right now, reading the Titus Crow novel.
