The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 8-6-17

Sunday Post

I almost included an “Around the Blogosphere” section this week, because Reading Reality has been busy elsewhere as well as here, this week in particular. My spotlight on science fiction and fantasy will be published in the August issue of Library Journal. Of course, the complete article is also available online, under the genre-appropriate title: Galaxy Quests. These annual spotlights are generally forward-looking, showcasing titles that are scheduled to be published in the upcoming months. I have also received a commission to write a “Collection Development” article next spring on one of my fave genres, Science Fiction Romance. It is intended to be a guide to which SFR titles, both forthcoming and previously published, libraries should have or try to get. I’m really looking forward to the research and the writing for that one.

I also had the opportunity to be a “guest commenter” on All Things Urban Fantasy as part of their regular, and regularly terrific Cover Art Coverage feature this week. It was a blast! I always love reading this feature, and it was fun to be part of it. I hope they ask me again sometime.
