So, as always seems to happen, I spent less time reading in the past week than I would have liked. I'm still on short stories, so the list of stories read still looks pretty long, but once I get to novelettes and novellas, I'm definitely going to have to spend more time reading.

Happily, the February Locus arrived on Saturday with their annual recommended reading lists, so my reading list should now stop growing until the Bram Stoker Preliminary Ballot is published (which I believe will be next week). For convenience, I have thrown up the complete reading list on my home page. I'm trying to stay on top of the administrative aspect of all this reading by starting the 2003 list already, though I won't start reading off of that one for quite a while.

There's also page listing all the sources for stories, so I won't bother to include links here except for stories available online.
