Books Read in February

Songs of a Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe, by Thomas Ligotti

The dreaming, slumbering ghost of Lovecraft is alive and well in this collection of horror stories.

Infinite Powers: How Calculus Reveals the Secrets of the Universe, by Steven H. Strogatz

Fairly light reading. Does not go too deep but gives a sense of how wide-spread Calculus is. Some nice historical examples show how it has been used across the years.

Look at the Harlequins! by Vladimir Nabokov

Nabokov’s last published novel. This protagonist here feels like the one that’s the closest imitation of the author. Beautiful, lyrical prose as always.

Supergods, by Grant Morrison

Grant Morrison looks at Super Heroes across the years, and weaves in his own childhood and career. Recommended for comic lovers.
