Catching up on the 30 Day Book meme from the Book Memes and Quizzes comm on LJ.

Day 2: A book or series you wish more people were reading and talking about

That’s easy. There are two main ones.
Diane Duane’s Young Wizard series, which is phenomenal, nuanced YA. Wizardry, but also emotionally mature, tackling ethics, and science beautifully. Every time I see Harry Potter mania, I wish Diane Duane’s series excited that level of fannish enthusiasm. Honestly, they’re better crafted stories. Starts with So You Want To Be a Wizard and stays consistently good.

Spider Robinson’s Callahan series. (Only up through The Callahan Touch, as they started to get weird after that.) Again, fun, emotionally nuanced speculative fiction, this time more on the scifi end of things.

And another, I wish there was more of: Laurie R King’s Kate Martinelli mysteries. I’ve read them all, they’re great, and I’m hungry for more. So maybe if more people talked about the series, she’d publish faster?

I continue to prove I’m incapable of answering these with just one answer. 🙂
