I just want to pop on here for a minute and tell you what you can be expecting of Special Needs in Strange Worlds.
The event is winding down. This week I will post my final few guest posts. Then I will finish it off with a post by me to close up the event, probably on Thursday or Friday. I’m not currently at my computer so I don’t have exact days figured out yet.
After I finish up Special Needs in Strange Worlds you can expect some mad reviewing. I’ve been accumulating a ton of books I need to review and I’ll be posting them quite rapidly so I can be caught up.
Here is a list of the books you’ll be seeing reviewed in about a week (not necessarily in this order):
Cordelia’s Honor – Lois McMaster Bujold
The Weird – Edited by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer
Of Blood and Honey – Stina Leicht
And Blue Skies from Pain – Stina Leicht
Space Battles – Edited by Bryan Thomas Schmidt
Miserere – Teresa Frohock
The Alchemist of Souls – Anne Lyle
Darkest Hour – Mark Chadbourn
Shadow’s Master – Jon Sprunk
The Company Man (currently reading, but will be done with it soon) – Robert Jackson Bennett
Armageddon Bound (currently reading) – Tim Marquitz
The Battle of Blood and Ink (my first graphic novel review) – Jared Axelrod and Steve Walker
I literally have a pile of books that I’m working through which, when piled, is about as tall as I am, and that’s not counting the ebooks. It’s all very exciting for me.
Basically, I’m saying that you have about a week left of Special Needs in Strange Worlds and then you will be inundated with reviews, which I’m hoping will make publishers and authors very happy – as well as the people who read my blog. I know some of you have been waiting a long time to read certain reviews.
In other news, I organized Special Needs in Strange Worlds to go on during some cancer stuff that was happening. The good news is that my doctor has said that it looks like I’m cancer free, and I don’t need to worry about it for six months when he’ll do another scan to make sure I’m still cancer free. That’s AMAZING news for me and it wasn’t what either of us expected, as I had been told twice before that it looked like I had three masses in my neck that looked cancerous. I’ve also had my cancer hormone treatment upped so the memory issues I was having (which were severely affecting my reviews) are almost completely gone. Basically, I’m feeling normal again and not just normal, but amazing. Cancer free. It can’t get better than that! This month, by allowing me to take a break and get myself straightened out has helped more than any of you will ever know. Plus, the feedback I’ve been getting has been nothing short of wonderful. I’m so glad it was a huge success and I hope you guys enjoy the last week of it as much as I will.
Though I must say, it’ll feel really good to be back to reviewing.
So there you have it!
Congratulations on becoming cancer free! That’s wonderful news. And thank you for organizing such an amazing event.
