Reading kind of fell off a cliff these past few months, which should give you a clue as to how I’ve been doing lately.

  1. Medallion Status by John Hodgman. Another collection of humorous personal essays from my favourite writer of humorous personal essays.
  2. The City in the Middle of the Night by Charlie Jane Anders. Fascinating science fiction novel, set on a harsh alien world with a decaying human colony, that ends too abruptly.
  3. Phantom Islands by Dirk Liesemer. Another book about islands that were later proved imaginary; review forthcoming.
