What are you reading these days?
Lud In The Mist certainly looks... interesting? Dunno if it's my thing or not but maybe I'll try it one day. I'm not reading fantasy right now, but I'm about halfway into Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo and really liking it.
Wish I could get my parents to write off my drinking. I started the Tawny Man trilogy last week so I'll probably be busy this for the next while.
Nice pick Mark. Very much to my taste. I'm not in the crowd that thinks the aurhor should be invisible in a story. The most enjoyable stories to me have always had a strong authors presence. I like to read prose that is laden with style.
