At some point I will post my favorite non-fiction books geared toward writing and editing, but for now I'll just list out some great fiction that's caught my attention.
"Vacation" by Jeremy C. Shipp (jeremycshipp.com) This novel blew my socks off. It's unlike anything I've ever read, and that's unusual because I've read a lot. He has free stories on his site -- I recommend "Scratch".
I've just now discovered the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris. I know, I'm behind the times. I like her style.
It's difficult for me to read as a reader anymore, instead of an editor. It's a problem.
"The Warded Man" by Peter V. Brett (petervbrett.com) I was lucky enough to be a First Reader for Peat (he put my name in the Acknowledgments! In the book!) and I knew before I got through the first page it was going to hit big. It has. It's been optioned for a movie deal. He's a great guy, and the book is FAWESOME. "The Desert Spear" hits the bookshelves in 2010 and he has one more scheduled. It's a rip-roaring read.
Mmmm, other than that, I've been Tremontized and deep in my own work.
