Do you own this book yet?

Seriously, I think I must have earned my street cred for recs by now - congratulations to Ted Chiang for his Nebula win!

So Tiny Deaths is what I'm reading before going to bed at night this last week. It's the only thing keeping me sane. You've read about most of what's going on in my life and onto that I am trying to get through 40 short stories a day. The only way to do that is to pick the stories you don't think you are going to like. That also reduces the fun aspect of reading. I've started a new rule where for every 4 stories I read, the fifth has to be from a top outlet. That helps *a bit* but what you really need at the end of a day like that, on top of the rest, is to have your faith restored in reading and have someone tell you just a good and interesting story. Last night I didn't notice and I accidentally read 2 shorts before putting the book down!!!

So uh ... yeah ... buy this book if you want some good reading.
