w00t! Phase two goes into effect.

Is the Norfolk any good? I haven't read any of his since the first, but enjoyed the heck out of that one.

And the SF: please to be reviewing, even if it is just little bitty blurbs. I only get to buy any when I'm stateside (the English-language booksellers in Munich appear to hate SF and definitely have very little clue about it), but recommendations would be quite nice indeed.


The Norfolk is good but very gnarly. The first third is a stark retelling of the hunt for the Calydonian boar, intensely footnoted. The latter part settles down -- I was a little reminded of John Fowles, for spoiler reasons. Also, the book answers the question, what if Paul Celan were as feted as Dylan Thomas?

Not John Fowles of The Magus, I hope. Or maybe I just didn't read that book early enough in my life.


I was thinking more The French Lieutenant's Woman.
