It’s Winter, Which Means…

…Winter is PRIME READING TIME. There’s just nothing better than sitting in a comfy chair with a cup of hot chocolate and a great book. We can’t help you with the first two, but we DO have a FANTASTIC selection of books. Want to get away from politics and escape into a world of cozy mystery? Pick up Angela P Wade‘s Edward Red Mage series. Want something grittier and more surreal? Dive into Cassandra Khaw’s worlds. How about YA targeted magical surrealism? Frances Hardinge has that category nailed. We could go on, but really, the best choice here is to take a look through our Pack Page for recommendations.

And if you are looking to dive into political or historical works, we have suggestions there too: Ijeoma Oluo, Kelley Fanto Deetz, Ebony Elizabeth Thomas (academic/scholarly work), and Imani Gandy, for a start.

What are you waiting for? Go order your stack of reading joys now! Or, you could go to Retro Daddio and buy something from our table there. There’s also AtomaCon 2018 coming up, as we may have mentioned once or twice by this point. We’ll be there with books to sell! In any case, start loading up your TBR stack for those cold days when staying home with a book is just the ticket.

 

More About Martin!

Gail Z. not George RR. (Big difference. For one thing, Playboy hasn’t yet tried to make a sexy Halloween cosplay of her, but they sure have gone there with George….)

Now that you’ve wiped the coffee from your screen and cursed us in six languages for an image you’ll never, ever be able to get out of your mind, let’s move on to talking about our Martin.

Readers may recall that Gail ran a post here on TSL recently, talking about her upcoming and current projects; well, if that caught your interest in the teensiest bit, THERE’S MORE… she’s actually going all out on a long blog tour, trekking with digital backpack and data shoes along the ether to bring more aspects of her creativity to as many sites as possible. Kinda like a cheerful writer’s version of Santa, in a way…

Anyway. Besides her post here, she also has delivered, for your reading and listening enjoyment:
