Quick Reading Updates, Book Bingo, & Musings on Writing
Hellboy, Vol. 1: Seed of Destruction - John Byrne,Mike Mignola

 

I finished Hellboy Vol. 1 Seed of Destruction & loved every bit of it. I would have loved it even more, if there was more Liz to go around. The artwork is so beautiful but what do I know because I haven’t read more than ten graphic novels/comics in my life.

However, that is all about to change!

Another graphic novel that I am loving because look how pretty!

 

Almost done with Asimov’s Science Fiction: Hugo & Nebula Award Winning Stories, which is the book that got me thinking. At the moment, I am engrossed in one of the stories featured in it, Barnacle Bill the Spacer, by Lucius Shepard. It is so unabashedly geeky and based on barnacles that I had to stop and think. It includes chunks about Barnacle biology & yet I am loving it. It reminds me of my 5k-word long short story, The Better to See You With. Not being able to publish it so far, I have been thinking if its the science that is preventing its acceptance. Shepard’s story has given me hope. Now all I have to worry about is that it might not get published because it is a sucky story. Phew!

Book Bingo continues with my girls from work. We already finished one round of reading & rolled the dice a second time. Check out the categories that we included in that super-bad picture below:

Raptor Red - Robert T. Bakker

Not a review. Just a note about how much I enjoyed this. 

 

It was a prehistoric romance, about a Utahraptor and the world around her. It was a pure joy to read. Full of science and beautiful descriptions. I am in love with this book.

Raptor Red
Raptor Red - Robert T. Bakker I was in love with this book from the very beginning, and I'm delving in for an immediate reread once I've passed my copy along and forced it onto all of my friends. It was funny and well-written, and the elements of humor and humanity weren't excessive - nor did they distract me or draw me out of the story. Raptor Red is definitely a new favorite, and I will now spend the rest of my life hunting for another dino-POV novel since I now have a hunger for more. I loved it so much I mailed it to a friend of mine that lives in another state just so she could read it!
