New Roundup

One of my projects over the past few months was reading somewhere in the area of sixteen books (along with a good deal of beginnings) for a science fiction roundup. I’m pleased to report that the fruit of my labors can be read this Sunday at The Washington Post, where the books featured include Gene Wolfe’s An Evil Guest, Nancy Kress’s Dogs, Leslie What’s Crazy Love, and Benjamin Rosenbaum’s The Ant King. I did my best to include a variegated mix of big and small authors, expected and unexpected presses, et al. If I have erred even a quarter as badly as Dave Itzkoff, by all means, feel free to rip me a new one in the comments.


  1. Awesome work. Can’t wait for the french toast future Wolfe predicts. It’s those last two short story collections you write about, though, by Leslie What and Benjamin Rosenbaum, that have got my attention. Probably because they inspired you to mention Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, and Italo Calvino.
