I read a lot, though not nearly as much as I’d like to. Not only because I love reading, but because I feel it’s important for me as a writer to stay current with the SF/F field, and to read the work of as many new-to-me writers and debut writers as I can. And there’s so many excellent books out there.
Others have called these past several years the beginning of a new golden age of science fiction and fantasy, ushered in by all the diversity of voices who are now publishing exciting and category-defying work. I think that’s true; I just hope the current pandemic and all its consequences doesn’t kneecap this new age before it can reach its full potential.
