[Editor's Note: Galatea Resurrects doesn't usually do lists. But we have a soft spot for this old coot and it's still worth noting that even as he doesn't wax long on these publications, he recommends them.]
I’ve had this pile of books on my desk for a long time now. It grows a little now and then. Some of the books came from a reading series here in town so I have heard the authors. That makes a difference to me. But not all the difference….I still crave the page. Old me. Some of the books are from friends. Thank you. And I really thought I would engage with each one of them for review…but alas here is the deadline. So I give you this list…based on what I have heard and read…these are all books worth reading. If you can buy them do that. If not maybe your library or online at Google or FB or Youtube…whatever. And a big thanks to all these authors and the publishers who make the books and zines. Good on ya.
