  • Wireless: The Essential Charles Stross. I got this for the novella included in it, “Palimpsest”. I did enjoy that one, but the others were all a bit meh, and in places a bit creepy (as in icky, not as in scary).
  • Evening Is The Whole Day by Preeta Samarasan. Got 10% of the way through, wasn’t digging it, stopped.
  • The Case Of The Late Pig by Margery Allingham. Aside from the casual fatphobia, a good short read!
  • The September 2016 issue of Clarkesworld. Some good stories, some not my thing.
  • Coraline by Neil Gaiman. A re-read after many years. I enjoyed it the first time I read it, but it feels a bit too close to the "evil stepmother" trope for me now.
  • Bramton Wick by Elizabeth Fair. Decent enough light reading, will read more.
  • Taken By The Hand by O Douglas (Anna Masterton Buchan). As previously reported, there are issues of occasional racism, classism, and sexism in this author’s books, but I still enjoyed reading this one. I think the main thing I enjoy about them is that they take the mother-daughter relationship seriously.
