Now it can be told. A little while back, Scott Edelman of Sci Fi Magazine contacted me, and asked if I'd be willing to do a little work for him. It seems they were covering Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer (like you haven't heard of it by -now-...) and would I be willing to work up a few sidebars? Certainly, said I. And lo, it has come to be. I just recieved my contributor copies of the December 2008 issue. In the sidebars, I look at Twilight "by the numbers," examine the Midnight Sun debacle, and make seven recommendations to Twilight fans in need of a good read or three.
For those curious, it was my opinion that Twilight fans might do well to check out:
Vampire Academy, by Richelle Mead
City of Bones, by Cassandra Claire
Blue Bloods, by Melissa de la Cruz
Generation Dead, by Daniel Waters
Wicked Lovely, by Melissa Marr
Glass Houses, by Rachel Caine
Marked, by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
As you can imagine, I'm quite pleased by the whole thing.
In fact, the entire issue looks pretty darned spiffy, if you ask me.
Over on SF Site, a few new reviews have gone live:
Dead To Me by Anton Strout
Mind the Gap by Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon
The Blood King by Gail Z. Martin
Poison Sleep by T.A. Pratt
The Touch of Twilight by Vicki Pettersson
Star Wars: Jedi Twilight by Michael Reaves
Gale Force by Rachel Caine
So go forth and find a good book to read!
I dunno.. that first guy on that second list sounds like a hack to me.. a hack, I tell you!!!
Tell me about it... who is this Anton, and what's all this about his trout? :>
Claudia Gray's Evernight really belongs on that vamp list!
Probably so, but I had a strict limit of 7 books, and I wasn't familiar enough with Evernight to talk about it. :< There were a lot of books I had to leave off for one reason or another.
