Fantasy Book Critic’s 2008 Review/2009 Preview — Mark Chadbourn


2008 FAVORITES:

1)The Audacity of Hope” by
Barack Obama
2)League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier” by
Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill. Even more Post-Modern than the first two books, and post-modernity doesn't always make for an emotionally engaging read, but Moore always finds something interesting and surprising in every tale.
3)Firestarter” by
Stephen King. Not one of his best, by a long shot, but it was one of the few early Kings that I hadn't read.

LOOKING AHEAD TO 2009:

None. I like to be surprised by stumbling across them in the bookshop.

ON THE HORIZON FOR MARK CHADBOURN:

Slightly embarrassed by the number of trees I'm killing in 2009. Don't blame me . . . blame the publishers!
