Back to Back Heavy Duty Nonfiction Calls for Dose of Not-Reality
So, I just finished In the Garden of Beasts after finishing Area 51: An Uncensored History. One is a book about World War II, specifically the rise of Hitler and Nazi Germany as seen through the eyes of an American ambassador in Berlin and his daughter. The other is about the rise of black ops, covert surveillance programs, nuclear testing in the Nevada desert that began in the years following WW II.
Oof. That’s a heavy dose of historical reality. Historical reality check? More like Reality body slam. Bring on the science fiction and fantasy. I’m ready for a break. Next up: Blackout and All Clear by Connie Willis, the duology that won this the 2010 Nebula Award for science fiction novel. Then Redemption in Indigo by Karen Lord; Redemption in Indigo is up for a Mythopoeic Society award.
No more reality for awhile, thank you.
