Between currently checked out library books, books I've recently purchased and books I've taken off the shelves and put in a stack because I feel like it's time I read them again, I've got 52 volumes at my bedside (I've dug out a small bookcase for them).  Can we please pause the world until the end of October so I can catch up?

I want to post about books, but I never seem to have either A) the time or B) the insight.  You can only use the phrase "that was really neat" so many times in a row before it begins to pall.  I will say this though: having just read Seanan McGuire's lastest Toby Daye book and re-read the first half of Elizabeth Bear's Elizabethean Promethean Age duology ('Ink & Steel'), I'd really love to see what the Fae would look like if those two authors collaborated.  Their takes aren't identical, but similar enough for some really groovy synergy, I think (and yes, 'groovy' is a technical term).

...of course I think lots of author collaborations would be groovy...Bear/McGuire is just realistically so (for a given value of realistic).
