I recently worked my way through Perdido Street Station by China Mieville. This is definitely one of the stranger books I’ve read of late.
I recently finished a manuscript, which means I’m currently waist-deep in editing and wading in deeper. In that vein, let me share some things I learned from editing prose over the years.
Recently, I got into an e-mail argument with a critic from a Dutch newspaper about the literary merits of fantasy and science fiction. The critic posited that the genres had ‘grown up’ and in doing so were actually making themselves a part of literary fiction. So, a rant about literary fiction snobbism.
Now the conclusion of my short story Hostages.
Today, installment 6 of Hostages, where Officer Kujima has to deal with the consequences of her failure.
