9754fantasy, change in genre
- Jul 2, 2003Ginger,
Yes, your suggestions are helpful, as are all the others! I know about the
ALA lists--I'm a librarian myself, in fact--but I I wanted to ask the
mythies. I knew I'd get good, individual replies and comments.

Also, don't forget other genres. When things are all looking a bit stale
to me, I whip out a frivolous western. For sheer action adventure where
the good guys always wear white hats I look to Louis L'Amour, or I try some
mystery with Agatha Christie.
Oh, yes. I never could get into Westerns myself, but mysteries are some of
my favorite escape reading. Do you read Tony Hillerman? Since I've been
writing fantasy, I seldom quite relax when I'm reading it; my mind is
either editing or trying to figure out how the author did something. So
far, all my friend Rebecca's son has asked for is "more like that", but of
course that could change at any time.
