Guest Post: Twisted Moon Magazine

It’s no secret that I’m fond of reading speculative erotica. So, I was delighted when Twisted Moon Magazine launched their first issue. With the second issue due out on Friday (in time for the New Moon, natch), I’ve invited the editors to share a little about their publication. Why erotic speculative poetry? What made us, […]

Mt TBR report: April 2017

April was already a great month for my reading, but it was nice to have Dewey’s readathon to give it an extra boost. Mt TBR has increased a little with the release of the shortlists for the Hugos and the Ditmars. However, the award shortlists also mean I’m not having any trouble meeting my new […]

Mt TBR report: March 2017

March was the first full calendar month where I didn’t have any reading to do for the Aurealis Awards. My reading rate subsequently took a plunge, but I remain happy, especially since there were a lot of good books this month. And things are likely to pick up again, now that the shortlists for the […]

Mt TBR report: February 2017

The first half of February continued January’s frantic pace as I concentrated on finishing all the remaining Aurealis nominations. The second half slowed down to a somewhat more manageable pace. Since I’m over halfway towards my goal of reading 100 books for 2017, I’ve decided to revise the goal up to 150. My other personal […]

Read My Valentine, Earl Grey Editing, romance reading challenge

Read My Valentine 2017 Wrap-up

During February I ran Read My Valentine. Ordinarily, it’s my excuse to read and review as many romance novels as I can manage, but I was still reading for the Aurealis Awards until almost midway through the month. So, this year I took a slightly different approach and concentrated on reviewing work that represented a […]

Mt TBR report: September 2015

September saw me power through the books for the second month running. This is probably a good thing because there was an influx of books in the last few days of the month and October holds the temptation of the dealers’ room at Conflux. Mt TBR status Mt TBR @ 1 January 2015: 202 Mt TBR […]
