Daily Thoughts 10/20/2009

Today is another quiet day. I put the displays in order this morning. I also am preparing to do some more weeding. There is a resume workshop in the Job Information Center going on now.

One of our staff requested us to order Fledgling by Melissa Scott. She says it is very enjoyable.

Sunflowers is turning out to be an amazing novel. At this point, Vincent Van Gogh has opened a studio with Gaugin and is arguing with him while he is drinking absinthe. He is in a relationship with a young lady of the night and is falling in love. His brother is sending him money. It is just really interesting.

Cory Doctorow is writing a new column for Publishers Weekly. I am looking forward to reading it regularly just like I read his column in Locus Magazine. http://www.publishersweekly.com/article/CA6702526.html

I looked at Peter and Max, A Fables Novel by Bill Willingham, illustrated by Steve Leiloha. The illustrations are in black and white. It includes a graphic story at the end of the novel. The novel is printed by DC Vertigo which is a first for the imprint. At the back of the book, there is a summary of each of the Fables graphic novels. I like to think of it as a hybrid of a novel and a graphic novel. I am looking forward to reading this.
