I just can't will myself to write. This ghastly weather's making me really lyaizi. Maybe in June when the monsoon arrives; as the earth attests to its fecundity by sprouting all sorts of things, green in color and nature - this blog too may experience a similar sprouting of posts.
Here's the lowdown of what I've been reading over the past couple of weeks. I've fallen head over heels for Scott Lynch's Gentlemen Bastards, having read two volumes back to back. I am impressed by Vernor Vinge's storytelling skills (and I've promptly procured the recently written sequel to a A Fire Upon the Deep) and I'm sold on Colin Thubron unassuming but captivating voice. The Dragon's Path and Age of Aztecs - I'd rate as average. I just can't seem to get over this fantasy fetish. I want to read some Indian writing soon - I've ordered Sonia Falerio's Beautiful Thing - I hope the book lives up to the accolades it's received.
