I have a plan, and the plan is this: I’m going to read one of the short fiction Hugo nominees each week, and post about it here in the hopes of sparking a discussion like that about “Divining Light“. I’m going to start with the novelettes, since they’re all online; I’ll post a reminder about whichever story I’m reading on Friday, and the discussion post on Sunday afternoon, since that seemed to work well before. Feel free to play along at home.
Are you surprised, or is that another kind of interesting? The Long Price Quartet has been notching up a fair amount of acclaim from all quarters, after all. It’s certainly on my TBR for this year, given that the last volume is out soon.
I’m surprised and not displeased. I hadn’t realised it was picking up wide acclaim. I read the first one and thought it nice enough, although it didn’t particularly make me want to pick up A Betrayal in Winter. Better than a lot of the toss out there though.
And I’ve just read that Tor.com YA thread. Oh dear.
