Read in January, 2010

This is another used bookstore impulse buy that turned out to be a good idea. Set in a post-Apocalyptic world (you get the impression that there have been several Apocalypses, actually), Winterlong is a surreal tale of magic and old gods reawakening into a world torn and warped by science used badly. The story contains some truly unique ideas and characters and makes creative use of many concepts from various world religions and myths, all of which is made more impressive by the fact that Winterlong was Hand's first novel. I look forward to reading the other two books in the trilogy.
