Locus Online published their annual Recommended Reading List today.
As usual, I’ve only read a few on the list, but I think I chose well, seeing as there aren’t many on the Locus list that I regret skipping. If I had time to add some new selections, I might look into Park’s All Those Vanished Engines and Winter’s The Last Policeman series (the final installment, World of Trouble, is listed), and Harkaway’s Tigerman keeps popping up enough to intrigue me, although the blurb doesn’t really appeal to me.
As for fantasy, I regret not reading Higgins’ Wolfhound Century series (the sequel, Truth and Fear, is listed), Paul’s The Bees seems mighty interesting, and I’ve read good things about Rickert’s The Memory Garden.
And Bête and A Man Lies Dreaming are not yet available in the U.S. Grrr.
My 2014 reading rundown has been updated to include my final thoughts on Okorafor’s Lagoon, which I ended up really enjoying. I will also add my thoughts on my current read, Claire North’s The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August, which is surprisingly absent from the Locus list.
We should be getting the shortlists for The Kitschies and the British Science Fiction Association awards any day now…
