For Your Reading Consideration…


John Kessel in Prague, from my Amazon blog entry

For your Thursday browsing pleasure, a round-up of my recent reviews, columns, and sundries.

My Bookslut column for July focuses on catching up with a few comics titles that had slipped through the cracks, along with a new title by Eddie Campbell from First Second, one of my favorite graphic novel publishers.

I’m taking July off at SF Site, but my June column focused on the heat in Smaragdine–and George Mann of Solaris Books.

I’ve had several posts on the Amazon blog over the past two weeks. Here’s a selection of material of potential interest.
