Reading Recommendation: Nnedi Okorafor’s The Book of Phoenix….

The whole title is The Book of Phoenix (Excerpted from The Great Book).  I listened to this as a podcast on the way over to the Rainforest Writer’s Retreat.  It was quite awesome.  I don’t really want to say too much about it since it’s not very long, but I like it a lot.  And, as always, Kate Baker narrates wonderfully.

A writer friend was listening to it with me – the fabulous John Pitts who is the author of Black Blade Blues.  Being an excellent man with words, he captures how I felt by saying, “Wow, that makes me want to be braver in my writing.”

BTW – sorry for the low level of posting – I’ve got my head down in a novel, work is busy, and my foot remains in a cast – which seems to slow life down more than one would think.
