I have recently read three forthcoming books for blurb, and enjoyed them all in substantially different ways. beth_bernobich
's Passion Play
(a very artful and elegant secondary world fantasy with some pleasing similarities to bram452
's Long Price Quartet
's Buffalito Destiny
(a funny, slapdash SF adventure combining the Mayan eschaton, radical environmentalism, and Schoen's delightfully cockeyed sense of humor); and Black Blade Blues
(a very appealing Norse-derived urban fantasy set in the Seattle area). I've also promised to look at a novel by stina_leicht
I think that about fills up my blurb quotient for the year. I will consider further requests, but will be very picky indeed about investing the time and focus required to do a decent blurb. Still, it's fun, and I love supporting newer writers.
