The Rai-Kirah Trilogy by Carol Berg

As I continue to (slowly!) read through the fiction on my shelves I've got to two books by Carol Berg - they are the first two of her trilogy The Rai-Kirah. The books are called Transformation and Revelation. I never bought the third one, and it's things like that that've made me taken on this project - did I not buy it because I didn't fancy it? Did I not buy it because I never got round to it? Should I buy it? It's definitely not the only series where I've got a couple then not the rest.

"All the Windwracked Stars" Elizabeth Bear

The next book in my project of re-reading all the fiction I own (that is still on the shelves) is All the Windwracked Stars, by Elizabeth Bear. I actually replaced it with a Kindle version before re-reading it, along with buying the next two in the series (the series as a whole is called The Edda of Burdens). I know I've read this before, as I at least recognised the names of the protagonists and something of the world it is set in, but I remembered very little of the actual story so I might as well've been reading it for the first time.

"Grail" Elizabeth Bear

Grail is the final book in Elizabeth Bear's Jacob's Ladder trilogy. I've posted about the previous two here and here. The first time I read the book I read the first couple of pages, then double checked I had the right book - the start is completely different from what I was expecting! (I should've been a bit more trusting, it's clear by halfway down page 3 that it's the right book ...)

"Chill" Elizabeth Bear

Chill is the second book in the Jacob's Ladder trilogy by Elizabeth Bear - the first one was Dust (post). I read this on the plane back from Egypt immediately after finishing Ann Leckie's Ancillary Sword (post) which definitely influenced the thoughts I was having while reading it.

"Dust" Elizabeth Bear

I bought Elizabeth Bear's "Dust" about 3 years ago when I read it for an online book club (which has since vanished without trace so I can't even link to it). I did write about it on my own livejournal so I can link to that first impression. This is another of the backlog of book posts that I'm catching up on (the last one! I'm nearly up to date!) so again I think this'll be less in depth than I would've written had I got to it quicker.

"Ink and Steel" Elizabeth Bear

Ink and Steel is the third book in Elizabeth Bear's Promethean Age series. It's the first part of a tightly linked duology set in Elizabethan England, with Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare as our view point characters. It opens with Marlowe's death, but given his presence as a character in Whiskey and Water (set some 400 years later) it comes as no surprise that this isn't the last we've seen of him.
