We’re going to Boskone (a science fiction convention in Boston), and I have a reading plan to fill the few weeks before we get there. There’s a long list of authors participating, many of whom I’ve read, more I’ve heard of but haven’t read yet, and even more I haven’t heard of, so in the next few weeks (and for the past week), my goal is to read at least one book by an author I haven’t read before who will be participating in this convention. So far, I’ve read Updraft by Fran Wilde and I’m on the third of a trilogy by Sarah Beth Durst. Next might be a couple of short stories by John Chu or a novelette by Vajnar Rajna or the first in the Craft sequence by Max Gladstone. And I need to find a copy of Rebecca Roanhorse’s book. After that, we’ll see how much time I have before the convention and how many others I can fit in. At least a few, but how to choose when I haven’t heard of the author?
Ooh, the schedule has been posted. I’m so excited!
