Books in Bed

Yesterday's Menu

The God Equation & Other Stories, by Michael A.R. Co
Fairy Tale Fail, by Mina V. Esguerra

Was only too happy to finish up The God Equation on one of the three beds at the cottage we rented at Sonya's Garden (two queen-sized, one king-sized, not counting the daybed inside the main room, and the daybed inside one of the cottage's two bathrooms. Have never seen so many beds in embroidered, luxury linen.). I still like the story, "In the Eyes of Many," the most. Maybe because in this story, the speculation required by speculative fiction is about the law. I think it's an excellent piece of work (with shifting POVs, which is something presently of interest to me).

Also pleased to have re-read in this collection, The Off-Season, which, together with The God Equation, made me think that I should send Ma'am Chary Lucero copies of these stories (she's looking for noir-ish stories written by Pinoys).

And because I wasn't that sleepy yet (far from it) when I finished the collection, I decided to re-read the delightful Fairy Tale Fail by Mina V. Esguerra, who happens to be Michael A.R. Co's wife. This couple's amazing.

Up next: Jorie Graham!
