  • Frankenstein Dreams: A Connoisseur’s Collection of Victorian Science Fiction by Michael Sims – Starting the month about a 1/4 of the way into this anthology. Library book.
  • On the Wrong Track by Steve Hockensmith – Wild West Reading Challenge
  • Eyeing the Flash: The Making of a Carnival Con Artist by Peter Fenton – TBR Challenge, Nonfiction Challenge
  • Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay – Nonfiction readalong, if it ever comes off hold…
  • Plutarch’s Lives – FrankenSlam! I’m pacing myself on the Plutarch. I’ve never read him before; I’m fearing the worst.
  • Model Species by …uh… me – I don’t make a habit of rereading my own books, but with so much Frankenstein in the air, I want to revisit my own accidental take on the themes of creation and responsibility.
  • Plus, various and sundry short stories.

    I finished Hunger last month and thought it was quite good, but I’m a fan of RG’s writing. It’s a quick read too.

    I’ve only read Perseus and Romulus of PL so far (though I read a slew of them way back in the day). A lot depends on whose life you’re reading. Perseus & Romulus are half/all legendary anyway so they might be more ‘fun’ reads than the actual historical biographies. I think just reading one every couple weeks or a few a month is a good plan. Good luck!

    PS A book club friend of mine and I went to a “Science Poetry” reading/contest finals a couple Friday’s ago, and one of the judges is also involved in Indiana’s One State, One Book Frankenstein programming. (He’s also the poet laureate of the Indy 500, which I didn’t even know was a thing). Anyway, he’s planning some Frankenstein-related poetry events and is calling them – you guessed it – Frankenslams! I immediately protested that I had an earlier claim to that neologism and, though we didn’t come to blows or anything, I did tell him my legal team would be in touch. Ha ha.

      …Ah, but do they have the Frankenlay-up? I think not.

      Mostly Plutarch is worrying me because my Classics classes seem so much further back in my education. I feel like the Greeks and the Romans have been silently disapproving since I gave them up for the Romantics sophomore year (or thereabouts).
