Review at The Fix

My review of the YA zine Shiny went up at The Fix over the weekend. This was interesting because of all the YA fantasy (and other) novels I've read, especially when I was teaching. So I enjoyed it, reading both for myself and with all my students in mind as well. I only taught for what...3 years, I guess, but I really enjoyed it and miss those kids.

Speaking of The Fix, a review of Farrago's Wainscot just went up as well...and it looks like for the reviewer at least, Finley's story that I mentioned a few posts ago didn't work on its own very well. The description of Jonathon Wood's "Between the Lines" makes it sound great, though, so I'll have to get to that soon. I love invented worlds that take something of ours and exaggerates it--a castle, a museum, a hedge, a group of trees, a manor. In this case an entire world is a library. Sounds fun.
