Vacation Reading

Since I’m leaving for a two week vacation early on Thursday morning and there won’t be any posts until 10/8 at the earliest, I figure I should give a glimpse of what my vacation reading will look like. I have 50 hours in the car, of which I will be a passenger for about 25 of those hours. Plus whatever downtime there will be on vacation.

So, this is what I’m bringing:
A Handbook of American Prayer, by Lucius Shepard
Acacia, by David Anthony Durham
The New Space Opera, by Gardner Dozois and Jonathan Strahan (editors)
Ragamuffin, by Tobias Buckell
The World Wreckers, by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Red Seas Under Red Skies, by Scott Lynch
Weird Tales: Issue 344
Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet: Issue 20

I was going to bring Bright of the Sky, but I only have 40 pages left and I expect to finish that this evening.

I am most looking forward to the Scott Lynch and the Tobias Buckell. My guess is that I won’t get through everything, but I should make a good dent in my reading pile, finish both magazines, and 3 or 4 books. Maybe more.

I'm reading Acacia right now too. I look forward to hearing your opinion. I know David would be interested too. He mentioned on his blog that this long after a book has been released it's hard to get mentioned. You should let him know when you put up something on it. I'm sure he'd appreciate it.
