213 total books read through November.

Best Book of the Month: Whiskey and Water – Elizabeth Bear’s Promethean Age is beautifully written and takes well known settings of hell and faerie and turns them on their head.

Worst Book of the Month: Blaze – A complete misfire by Stephen King

Disappointment of the Month: You Don’t Love Me Yet – I expect much more out of Jonathan Lethem

Pleasant Surprise of the Month: Asimov’s Science Fiction 30th Anniversary Anthology - Almost every story was a winner.

Novella of the Month: Promises to Keep – This is a good introduction to Charles DeLint.
