WWW Wednesday

The three ‘W’s are what are you reading now, what have you recently finished reading, and what are you going to read next, and you can find this week’s post at the host’s blog here if you want to check out other posts.

What are you currently reading?

Cover of Camelot's Blood by Sarah ZettelCamelot’s Blood, by Sarah Zettel; it’s the last of Zettel’s books set in Camelot, and a reread for me. I think it’s the first time I’m rereading it since I wrote my dissertation, so it’s been a lot of fun revisiting it and seeing what I think now. I’m hoping to have finished it by the time this post goes up, but we’ll see.

What have you recently finished reading?

Cover of Virus X by Frank RyanVirus X, by Frank Ryan. It’s a little old now, and somewhat out of date, but that only adds to my feeling of wonder that human civilisation hasn’t yet been decimated by a pandemic. People list it as an irrational fear, and it really isn’t — we’ve had so many near-misses already.

What will you be reading next?

I haven’t decided! Probably fiction, though; I’m getting my non-fiction urge scratched by my dissertation research on TB. (I know, a far cry from romance novels set in Camelot.) But if I can find the book on TB I want, I might read that.

What are you reading lately?

  1. I have been wading through the gore in the spectacularly evocative Rupert Wong Cannibal Chef. I… would never have read these left to my own devices – in the Venn diagram of cannibalism, myth and horror, I live firmly in the intersection that doesn’t include cannibalism – so I surprised myself by broadly enjoying it. And I certainly appreciate Cassandra Khaw’s writing, even as I flinch / squirm. Ew. There’s actually very little cannibalism (thankfully), but an awful lot of gore.

    …quite a shock after the sedate Gothic anguish of Shadowsong (sequel to Wintersong).

    • Definitely. We don’t have the infrastructure or anything prepared for the big pandemic. And there’s no way we’re not going to have to deal with new infectious diseases that could become pandemic.
