Off the Bookshelf: House of Suns, Ender's Game, Atrocity Files

by Ken Newquist / December 5, 2013

It's a slow time for reading at Nuketown. The frenzy of the summer reading list has given way to the crush of my fall work load (and, if I'm honest, too much time spent playing Civilization 5).

The Unspeakable Oath is conducting a subscription drive.

With June only days away I'm now scrambling to come up with my summer reading list. So far the list looks a lot like last summer's list, with three sequels to books I read last summer.
