Fame is like a shadow. Chase it, and it runs from you. But ignore it to focus on your work, and it grows with the passing of the sun. Of course, once night falls, it’s gone for good.
Unless, perhaps, you carry a torch.
But mainly I’m just a fanboy. Today I’d like to talk about some torches I carry for other people.
Andrea K Höst: I stumbled across Höst’s novel Stray (part of the Touchstone Trilogy) about two years ago and was immediately fascinated. This is, frankly, some of the best science fiction I’ve ever read (and I’ve been reading sci-fi since the late 1960s). Her writing reminds me in some ways of Ursula K. Le Guin’s. At just 99 cents, the first novel is a steal.
