Self-reflection is great, it keeps the mirror companies in business. In my case, I need one of those mirrors with a wide angle in order to reflect on everything, but there you go. With that said, an introspective human being should be reading, too.
On my plate…
H.P. Lovecraft – Pretty much everything he wrote. $0.99 from Amazon. Another writer I’m reading now described him as a mystery/suspense novelist that uses horror as the back drop. I’m reading through his works now with that perspective in mind.
Charles Stross – The Atrocity Archives. Part geek, part Samurai Cat. I have a weakness for computer jokes and dry humor. Most of the math/physics references fly right by me, but the writing is fun and I do love the inside jokes.
Patrick Rothfuss – I just finished his first two Kingkiller novels. Strong writing and comes highly recommended by Jim Butcher, another personal favorite.
Just a few things crossing my plate right now. What’s on your shelf?
