Horizontal sleet from south meets my window. Sole outdoors activity today – cutting kindling with a blunt axe.
Time for a reading list:
China Mieville (Perdido Street Station and the even better sequel/companion volume The Scar)
Iain M. Banks (Look to Windward was my scifi book of year 2003 – now I’m rereading Feersum Endjinn)
Jeff Noon (Pollen – not a plot book, but an ideas book)
Mike Davis (City of Quartz, a densely packed journey through the social history of LA from a strongly analytical socialist writer)
Philip Kerr (Gridlock, a good days entertainment in the vein of The Cube etc.)
