December 11, Thursday night -- Reading Marie Brennan

Reading Warrior, by Marie Brennan. Her favorite book -- Frankenstein, by Mary Shelly. Back then, she said, people had a more complex way of thinking and had greater imaginations. Now, she said, people use the same words over and over again.

The best author of contemporary writing -- Stephenie Meyer. She's the Herman Melville of today because of her in-depth descriptions.

She also likes Linda Lael Miller, who writes well-researched historical romance. If all factual information were fed into stories, she said, people would be a hell of a lot smarter.
