Once more it is June. Again. And again I embark upon that epic effort of daily blogging, take three, wherein I call upon myself for a kind of rambling focus, picking from a list of daily topics, and with neither planning nor advance writing, strive to pepper this blog with the free-thought, free-writing wonder that is another one of Those 30 Posts in June. Today, that post just happens to be:
June 13th // Something You Are Reading
I’ve always kinda liked the sprawling science fiction epics of Dan Simmons.
A co-worker recommended I have a look at some of his other books, specifically Ilium and Olympos,a two-book series that is a far-future mash-up… retelling… analog or whatever you want to call it of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, respectively.
I picked up the first book more than once, never quite getting into it at first. Rinse. Repeat… maybe, say, three times. Then for whatever reason, as books sometimes are in the habit of doing to me, it stuck in my head and suddenly I couldn’t put them down.
I’m almost… but not quite… finished the second. Maybe soon. And maybe I’ll write a review at some point, too.
Or maybe you can tell from this post that I’d probably recommend it. Or, at least, it’s just something I’m reading.
