Babylon Steel by Gaie Sebold
Babylon Steel

pandora, July 6, 2012

This perfect summer read blends action, adventure, mystery, sex and science fiction. Sebold's debut novel kept me happily reading despite being a touch blue and heteronormative. Looking forward for her next!

Touching, resonant and recognizable, this memoir offers the reflections of a man who makes his living writing and his attempt spend time his adult son who was born significantly premature leaving him with the articulation of an eight year old.

Still Life: Adventures in Taxidermy

pandora, September 5, 2011

Everything you ever wanted to know about taxidermy and more. I've always been a bit grossed out by taxidermy but Milgrom's explorations led me to a genuine appreciation of a captivating subculture.

Worldwired

pandora, August 18, 2011

A sci fi book set in the Canadian future with ex-military, 50-something Jenny Casey saving the day. Action, intrigue and space travel, this is the final book in the best trilogy I've read in a decade. Meet your future: Elizabeth Bear is an exciting new voice in fiction and Jenny Casey rocks!
