So much to read…

I started reading Eclipse Two last night and enjoyed the first story immensely. Apparently this volume has more SF than the first so I’m looking forward to reading the rest.

Meanwhile I’m getting a very short novel called Genesis and the last of Alan Dean Foster’s Pip & Flinx books to review. The latter is the sequel to Quofum that I read recently. I was also persuaded to take two earlier books from the series that hadn’t been reviewed so all four books should turn up this week.

Then Interzone arrived, with a brilliant cover again.

The latest BSFA mailing arrived in the same post. This includes Matrix and the special issue of Focus that includes the BSFA short story competition winners. Plus a special booklet reproducing the BSFA Award nominated short stories. I need to read that pretty quick so I can get my vote in. Plus a special PostScripts taster with 100 pages of fiction from some very well known names. All five of these magazines arrived 10 minutes before I had to leave for work this morning, just giving me time to open them and flick feverishly through, vowing to read each one straight away.

If only I didn’t need to sleep at some point.
