January reading

Permanent Linkby starweaver on Sun Feb 01, 2009 11:24 am

Books:
**** The Other Wind by Ursula K. LeGuin

Stories:
**** "Sweetly the Dragon Dreams" by David Farland
*** "The Tile Setters" by Ami Chopine
***** "The Merchant and the Alchemist's Gate" by Ted Chiang
**** "The Last and Only or Mr. Moscowitz Becomes French" by Peter S. Beagle
*** "Prime Time" by Douglas Texter
**** "The Sun God at Dawn, Rising from a Lotus Blossom" by Andrea Kail
*** "The Frozen Sky" by Jeff Carlson
** "The Absence of Stars" (Part One) by Greg Siewert
** "Trunk and Disorderly" by Charles Stross
*** "The Texas Bake Sale" by Charles Coleman Finlay
***** "The Stone Cipher" by Tony Pi
***** "Dance of Shadows" by Fred Chappell
***** "The Robot Sorceror" by Eric James Stone
*** "The Gnomes Are Coast Guards" by Chantel Tattoli
***** "Shadow of the Valley" by Fred Chappell

My ratings:
***** excellent: memorable, satisfying, a pleasure to read
**** very good: well written, good read, perhaps with small flaws or not quite aligned with my personal taste
*** good: readable, engaging, but with some problems or just not memorable or exciting for me
** sub-par: a rough read, either amateurish or just uninteresting to me
* huh? someone published this?

My ratings are part objective appraisal of the writing, part unapologetic personal preference (certain subjects and subgenres just don't appeal to me as much as others)
