Books Read in 1994

This post follows on from Books Read in 1993, which I posted in July.

Total count for the year is up from 103 to 110, and it’s a marking time sort of year, with lots of good books read, but no major new discoveries made, no new writers who rocked my world.

On this day in 1994 I was reading Short Story Writing by the intriguingly named Dilys Gator, though actually I probably wasn’t as it was only a short book and according to my records I started it on the 19th of September. On the occasion of my fortieth birthday I was reading Hearts, Hands and Voices by Ian McDonald.
