Monthly Book Haul
As usual, it is mostly fantasy and science-fiction, with one poetry book thrown in. I have become interested in poetry since I decided to leave comments in poetry-form on deviantart, so I thought I might learn something from the masters. I have never really read poetry before, except Milton's Paradise Lost, and a bit of Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience, and I am curious if I will take to it.
Books from top to bottom:
Six Centuries of Great Poetry
The Blood King and
The Summoner, both by Gail Martin
Winterbirth, by Brian Ruckley
The Awakened Mage, by Karen Miller
The Elysium Commission, by L. E Modesitt
The Books of Martin and Miller (her second book should be along in a week or so) are somewhat of a rarity in the F/SF genre: duologies. For some reason most authors seem to prefer trilogies or monster series.
I may post some reviews once I am through them.
