Once again, a long dry spell without reviews.

Sorry about that — haven’t been reading anything the last couple of months, too busy working on a novel I’m writing.

‘Till the Last Petal Falls by Elizabeth Rose should be arriving soon, and when it does I’ll be digging into that and there’ll definitely be a new review up for it.

In the mean time, here’s an almost review, recommended authors:

Mysteries — Lawrence Block

Fantasy — Dennis McKeirnan, Ed Greenwod, Elaine Cunningham, JRR Tolkein

Science Fiction — Robert Heinlein, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Spider Robinson, Arthur C. Clarke, E. E. ‘Doc’ Smith

Romance — Maybe Neil Gaiman‘s Stardust, couldn’t say, I don’t have a favourite romance author at the moment.

Urban Fantasy — Seanan McGuire (hey, that many Hugos both won and nominated, and Nebula awards?!)

Western — Good ol’ Louis L’Amour

Young Adult/Childrens/Teens — J K Rowling, C S Lewis, Lewis Carroll, A. A. Milne, L. Frank Baum, Wendy Orr

Comics/Graphic — Clairmont’s Uncanny X-Men, the wonderful Schlock Mercenary by Howard Tayler, Jeph’s Questionable Content, and the Foglio’s Girl Genius

Classic Adventure — Mark Twain, Jules Verne, Treasure Island, Three Musketeers.

Sound like a cliché list?  Couldn’t it be just as likely that it’s just a list that a lot of people over the years have agreed with, and several awards and best seller lists would back up?
