A Year Of Reading Women – Hiatus

with 16 comments

I published my review of Kindred by Octavia Butler at the beginning of November. It was meant to appear in October. I am meant to be reviewing The Lathe Of Heaven by Ursula LeGuin this month. That isn’t going to happen. I am currently deep into the reading for this year’s Arthur C Clarke Award and I have neither the time or the headspace to read or review anything else. So I’m putting A Year Of Reading Women on hiatus until next year and will restart with The Lathe Of Heaven in March 2012. This will be followed Spirit by Gwyneth Jones but then I’d like to keep going and cover eight more books over the rest of the year. Some ideas I’ve had so far include:

  • Parable Of The Sower by Octavia Butler
  • Cyteen by CJ Cherryh
  • Infidel by Kameron Hurley
  • Silver Screen by Justina Robson
  • The Female Man by Joanna Russ
  • A Door Into Ocean by Joan Slonczewski

Other suggestions welcome in the comments.
