Current Reading…and Last Day for Translation Award Donations

Jeff VanderMeer • January 14th, 2011 @ 11:12 am • Culture



Being kinda sick and having mined out On Demand movies to the point that I’m down to Care Bears Birthday 3 and Chucky Goes Hollywood…I’ve been switching over to reading I Hotel and sampling Surrealist Subversions and The House of Fear (Leonora Carrington) with Savage Detectives up after I Hotel. By the way, I Hotel…thus far it is one of the best political novels I’ve read, in how it interweaves history and personal lives, how it manages to be didactic at times, but in ways that are playful, imaginative, and, yes, entertaining. Great stuff.

PLEASE NOTE: Today is the last day for donations to fund the new genre translations awards founded by Cheryl Morgan et al—if you want to be in the running for lots of great prizes, including a signed copy of my novel Finch.

    I Hotel looks really interesting, will have to investigate that… hope you get better soon!

    Happy to see you’re enjoying I Hotel, as that was one of my favorite 2010 reads. I need to write a formal review of that sometime.

    Will look at the donations page now that I’ve been paid.

    Is it just me, or did you not already read and dislike the Savage Detectives?

    Is that so? I thought I was the only living boy who disliked that book. So, probably not.
