Mark Lawrence recently posted a challenge: how many Speculative Fiction books can you hold up, covers facing forward and visible?
It took me a day to get someone to photograph me, as there was no way I'd pull this off on my own. Our top score was 13:
Jim Butcher might as well have sponsored this, since I was holding Storm Front, Summer Knight, Grave Peril, Death Masks and Fool Moon, none of which I've actually gotten to read yet. I guess I owe him now. In addition are old and worn copies of Michael Crichton's Sphere and Jurassic Park, Dante's Inferno, H.G. Wells's Time Machine, and Stephen King's Needful Things and The Waste Lands. Down in my hands are the equally lovely Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis and From Dark Places by Emma Newman.
