Well, dear readers, I must apologise for the two-month hiatus just now ended by the review of Witpunk.  This has been caused by going back to university for a second year and finding my flat without internet, thus being limited in my time online; it has also been caused by spending a lot of time with my girlfriend, and indeed with university work.  Fear not, however - I have 12 individual book review, and one series round-up review, to write and post in the next few days.  This assumes that I don't finish any more books in that time, and the glut will start this evening (GMT).  So... you might want to unfriend me for a time, since I'm going to, as before, deal with each one in a separate post.  I'm looking forward to this; are you?

Oh, and bear this in mind - I now have internet at my flat, so book reviews should be more frequent and on a more ad-hoc, as-the-book-is-finished basis.  And if you have any important post or issue that's come up or you've written over the last 2 months you'd like me to see, hear about, read, whatever... let me know in comments!

The entry's behind a trio of cuts, but that's because of length - and the first part does contain a 28-item list. However, don't let that put you off; there's also significant substance and crunch to get your teeth into, so please read - and give me your thoughts!

Quarterly Matters )

Hugo 2010 )

Housekeeping )
Books & Statistics ) 
Some Thoughts (More personal musings) )

So what can you expect in the future?

Well, these are the books I’ve got lined up to read over the next few weeks…
1. Palimpsest, by Cathrynne M. Valente
2. The New Weird anthology, by Jeff and Anne VanderMeer
3. Dwarves, by Markus Heitz
4. Melusine, by Sarah Monette
5. Sword of Shannara, by Terry Brooks
And other than that, you’re really looking at more of the same old eclectic and personal reading choices and reviews, hopefully with the quality of later improving and getting better at being a decent critic!  So if there's anything you'd like me to read and review, let me know (and preferably send me an amazon.co.uk voucher so I can afford it!) and if there's anything you'd like to see change about the style of the review or layout of the blog, comment here!

Thanks for reading, and see you next year.
Hereonin, I'll just be linking to reviews written on my LJ of books; personal entries will be posted here and crossposted to LJ, though.
