Jeff Vandermeer, author extraordinaire, has provided a list of his favourite novels of 2007 to Locus Online, a respected science-fiction/fantasy publication.
And guess who’s on the list?
Among many, many other notable titles (he acknowledges that it was a very good year for reading), Jeff cites Shelf Monkey under his ‘First Novels’ choices, noting :
Corey Redekop provided this year’s gonzo fun with his Shelf Monkey, an utterly enjoyable novel about radical bookworms.
I love it.
Thanks, Jeff, and I’ll be starting The City of Saints and Madmen any day now.
