Reading List (year one)

Not so much an "Appendix N" as simply the stuff I've been reading over the last year that has some quality of gaming inspiration, one way or the other. Lately, I've been rereading my personal holy grail to that end of things, The Book of the New Sun by Gene Wolfe, although this time through I have Michael Andre-Driussi's Lexicon Urthus on the nightstand as well for further edification. After I finish the series I plan to pick up Robert Borski's Solar Labyrinth as a final delve into the layered mysteries of Wolfe's world creation.

  • Peace, Gene Wolfe (A)
  • Kingdom Come, JG Ballard (B)
  • Wireless, Charles Stross (B+)
  • Zero History, William Gibson (B-)
  • The Tree of Life, Israel Regardie
  • Home Fires, Gene Wolfe (A-)
  • Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius, Jorge Luis Borges (A-)
  • City of Saints and Madmen, Jeff VanderMeer (D)
  • Imaginal Reality, Aaron Daniels
  • Holy Fire, Bruce Sterling (C+)
  • Magical Circles in the Grimoire Tradition, William Kiesel
  • Promethea, Alan Moore (B)
