Because I’ve been sick, I haven’t read as much as I’ve wanted to. I want to be able to dive deep into what I’m reading and fully digest it. I haven’t been able to do that with a stuffy nose. So my pace has slowed, but I’m still moving forward. Unfortunately my BABEL is growing at the same pace as well. Here’s what I have read, and am in the process of reading:
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman – I admit it. I’m more familiar with Marvel’s Asgard than the Asgard of Norse mythology. I thoroughly enjoyed having that oversight in my education corrected. I listened to it on audiobook, also narrated by Neil Gaiman, which I felt was an added bonus.
Powers of Darkness: The Lost Version of Dracula by Bram Stoker and Valdimar Ásmundsson, translated by Hans de Roos – I recently reread Dracula so it would be fresh in my brain while working on Lucy Harker, Vampire Hunter. I’m about a quarter of the way through it. It’s fascinating to see what elements and passages are the same as well as the subtle (and not-so-subtle) changes.
The Mabinogion translated by Charlotte Schreiber – Several of my friends expressed an interest in discussing it, and I’ve been meaning to read this for a while. I’ve only read the “The Lady And The Fountain” so far. I’m also listening to it at work, and I’m still getting a feel for the language. I may need to go back and physically read or listen to it again.
Next on the list: finish Powers of Darkness and The Mabinogion, and start Kameron Hurley’s The Stars Are Legion, to be followed with Goodbye From The Edge Of Forever by Steven Mix.

Snort. At least you don’t prefer Marvel’s version of it. 😉
