One of the nice things that’s happened with the new job is time to read. Not enormous time, but more than I’ve had for awhile. Certainly enough to read twenty books.

I intend to read the Clarke list because as it happens, I’ve only read one of the nominees, and unless you read at least two thirds I don’t think you get to argue with the judges.

Nod by Adrian Barnes (Bluemoose)
Dark Eden by Chris Beckett (Corvus)
Angelmaker by Nick Harkaway (William Heinemann)
The Dog Stars by Peter Heller (Headline)
Intrusion by Ken MacLeod (Orbit)
2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson (Orbit)

I labelled them sf/f; sf; or fantasy. I won’t be reading the fantasy. If I put a book in this category it really is fantasy, I have given the benefit of the doubt where I could (at the bottom of this post you’ll see descriptions from Amazon).
