Summer Big Read

I’ll be doing a Big Read on this site in June. More details on that next week. It’ll be a very cool book, & one familiar to longtime readers.

Let the guessing begin. I’ll posit Fernando del Paso’s News From the Empire (or perhaps his earlier Palinuro of Mexico).

Oh cool! Can’t wait to see what it will be. News From the Empire would be fun. I’ve had it on my shelf for a year or two and I’ve yet to read it. Same thing with Carlos Fuentes’ Terra Nostra. Same thing with Imperial. Basically, I’m saying any of these books would be extremely convenient for me, but if it’s not one of these, then I suppose I’ll have an excuse to buy another book. I’m always excited for a big read.

Are you doing A Naked Singularity now that it’s being properly published?
