- A Civil Campaign by Lois Bujould. It's the seventh (or eight) in a series. Bujold has an excellent sense of humour, and great notions. The series begins with Shard of Honor and is higly recommended by me.
- A Thread of Grace by Mary Doria Russel. Anything Russel writes - until now, unfortunately, only two books - is a higly recommended, entertaining and profound read. She has quickly become one of my most admired aurhors. This is her first historical novel; previously she wrote within the framework of science-fiction. In the novel she talks about the later years of WW2 specfically concentrating on Italy. Amazing.
- I Dreamt of Africa by Kuki Geler. An autobiography of the woman and her family, detailing her life in Nigeria for a fairly long period. Well written, though a bit too emotionally styled and heavy on the unnecessary descriptives. Pretty good.
- Cebtury Rain by Alastair Reynolds. Except for being a little on the heavy side, it's very interesting and quite unusual.
- One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It's Marquez, need I say more?
