Hi, Nienna!

Some of my favorite authors are Connie Willis, Neal Stephenson, S.M. Stirling, Nicola Griffith and Peter Straub. All of them tend to have a seamless writing style that draws you deep into their narratives (though they're very different writers!) and it's something I really admire.

Favorite recent reads include Griffith's HILD, Peter Watts's new novel ECHOPRAXIA, and every and anything by Tana French, perhaps especially FAITHFUL PLACE.

I also read a lot of history, and am especially fond of Gillian Gill's novels about figures like Florence Nightingale and Agatha Christie.(less)

The opening of this novel may be one of the best things I've ever read--creepy, suspenseful, unexpected and tragic--but all that potential never quite comes to a satisfying conclusion.
