What are you reading?
I just finished Acacia and truly enjoyed it -- I'm looking forward to Book Two. It was a little slow in the middle - but he was quite successful creating a new world rich with culture, history, and secrets. All the characters (and there were many) were well developed, imo. It was a review book for me, so I hope to post my thoughts on Amazon.com soon. It was def a departure from his historical fiction legacy.
The only other SciFi/Speculative ficiton reads I plan to tackle this month are:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - I'm a fan of the series :-)
The Cursed by L.A. Banks
The Opposite House by Helen Oyeyemi - does this count as spec fiction?
Danse Macambre (#14) and The Harlequin (#15) by Laurell K. Hamilton (non-AA author)

I took "the Salt Eaters" with me on my trip and enjoyed it.
Also Lawrence Kushner's "Kabbalah: A Love Story"
I finishsed "Cripple Creek" by James Sallis and I bought Nalo's latest
