Hi all,

Fantastic Metropolis is running a KJ Bishop feature at the site. Don't miss the interview conducted by Mike Simanoff, and an exclusive excerpt from her brilliant The Etched City novel!

Best,
Luís

Nice interview. I've got a few more books to check out based on it. It seems whenever I read an interview or a review, I get more books added to my list of ones I want to read.

The first one I tried to find was Maldoror. Since I enjoyed Maldoror Abroad, I wanted to read Lautreamont's work. My library has 2 copies of a literary analysis of Maldoror, but the actual writing is non-circulating.

I'm often amazed at what my library has, and what they don't have available. It makes no sense to me.

Maybe they had Maldoror and someone just 'forgot' to bring it back. It's the kind of book that, if you read it, you'd probably want to keep it.

Since I've been hanging out on this message board, my 'to read' pile has grown to a ridiculous size. I feel like I want to take a couple of months off just to sit down and read.

I've been tempted to take out books and forget to bring them back. The biggest temptation is Adventures in Unhistory by Avram Davidson. I haven't found a copy for sale for less than $800. But I don't want to deprive anybody else in Pittsburgh of the chance to read it.

My to read pile is too large. Not only do I have a huge list of things written by authors who contribute to this board, but I've also got lots of stuff they recommend. Jeff's list of best fantasy books is going to take too long to go through.

It doesn't get any easier. I'm preparing another list of another 100 or so titles.

I don't really have a list. I figure it'd be more depressing than practical. I just read what I want to read; there's always more there to choose from. Once in a while I go back and read something again, but I always have stuff on hand that I haven't read yet.

Ok, just for a minute there, you had me. 'City of Glass and Spite?' I thought. 'Sounds cool!'

(I typed that first as City of Glass and Spit, which made me think of a bored barman building the equivalent of a house of cards, stacking up all the glasses, which he has cleaned with a rag and spit, into sunny domes and caves of ice... as for the Half-Life of Moustafa Ablikhan, the title made me think of how Persian rugs look like old video games... Buckwaldo Headtipper, hmmm... executioner and part-time confessor to the Coffee Royals, last seen setting off to sea in a parade float modified for sail... tra-la-la...)
