I have just today nabbed a couple of what you proles refer to as “novels.” First up is The Etched City by K. J. Bishop, which was recommended to me by Goodreads after it caught me making googly eyes at China Mieville.
Next is Cory Doctrow’s Little Brother. All the cool kids seem to know who he is, so I thought I’d check it out.
(I also note that Master and Commander has been on the nightstand since June. I check in on it occasionally to make sure nothing happened while I was away.)
I have a couple of articles I’m intending to write for the Flash Fiction Chronicles, one about superheroes, and another about small apocalypses. Stay tuned!
