The Book High

I've always said I'll read anything, and I really do mean that. Lately M/M romance has had my interest, but fantasy and sci-fi were my first loves and will always hold a special place in my heart. I also love histories and biographies.

Currently reading

The Mists of Avalon
Marion Zimmer Bradley
Shakespeare After All
Marjorie Garber
Galen and the Forest Lord - Eden Winters Hilarious! A m/m satire of werewolf stories was apparently exactly what I needed last weekend, because I adored this!

The set-up was perfect, with the clever witch duping the horrible, doltish villagers (who don't bother to learn to count higher than 12... because that's how many eggs are in a dozen :P). Then we meet the werewolves who adore fancy clothes but can't help destroying them every other scene when they shift impulsively.

My absolute favorite, though, was how the "mate" thing was handled, and Galen suddenly having his "inner wolf" to converse with. It was all perfectly toned and timed and made me think of all of the awful caveman "you mate. mine." approaches to shifter lore that I've come across.

Great good fun. Highly recommended if you like satire and shifter stories.
