Reading log, 2014

Another year, another list of books.

Far and away the best books in this list are the four making up the series The Book of the New Sun, by Gene Wolfe. It had been a long time since I had read epic fantasy that felt as enormous as worlds are supposed to be, and as weird.

    NOS4A2 (2013)

  • Albert Camus
    The Stranger (1942)

  • T. C. Boyle
    When the Killing's Done (2011)

  • Stanislaw Lem
    Solaris (1961)

  • William Poundstone
    Labyrinths of Reason (1988)
