All the Time in the World

My taste in reading material is wide and varied: SF/fantasy/"speculative fiction", mysteries (police procedurals, mostly), history, fanfic, straight fiction, smutty vampire books, biographies, poetry, cereal boxes, assembly instructions, the fine print, and your mind.

Winterlong

Winterlong - Elizabeth Hand I was so freaked out by this book that I refused to read any of Elizabeth Hand's other books for years. Fortunately someone eventually made me read Waking the Moon, and I got over my Handiphobia, but I don't think I'll be revisiting this one.

Cold, cruel, manipulative, sadistic - yeah, the real world is enough of those that I don't need to have my nose rubbed in it. I'll admit that portions are beautifully written, but it seriously put me off.
