More reading material

Hard on the heels of my list of classic SF novels to read, I thought today that I should look up the World Fantasy Awards and add those winners who fit my "classic" definition to my reading list. So here we go:

Robert Holdstock, Mythago Wood
Barry Hughart, Bridge of Birds
John M. Ford, The Dragon Waiting
Michael Shea, Nifft the Lean
John Crowley, Little, Big
Gene Wolfe, The Shadow of the Torturer
Elizabeth A. Lynn, Watchtower
Michael Moorcock, Gloriana
Fritz Leiber, Our Lady of Darkness
William Kotzwinkle, Doctor Rat
Richard Matheson, Bid Time Return
Patricia A. McKillip, The Forgotten Beasts of Eld

Some of these I'm pretty sure I've read. I remember buying Bridge of Birds at Dreamhaven, back when it was still in Dinkytown, for example. I also think I've read The Dragon Waiting and The Forgotten Beasts of Eld. I'm going to keep them on this list of books to read, however, as it would be good to re-read them, just to be sure.

Reading progress

So I finished This Immortal. It was that slow at work.

I am struck by the impression that the novel exists in order for their to be a scene of a character named Cassandra stamping her foot and exclaiming, "You never believe me!"
