I had a bit of a hiatus on posting my updates, and (frankly) have been reading loads of book that are not on these lists. (The charmingly quirky Charlotte MacLeod ‘Boston’ mysteries, for example.) But I have made a few more ticks on the list.

At the end of 2018 I set a goal for myself of reading all of the books on the Top 100 Fantasy and Top 100 Science Fiction book lists. It was ambitious. For links to the the full list, see this post. For a quick review of the 44 I’d previously read, see here. Since […]
