Suggestions for 2009
The Line Between by Peter S. Beagle for Sammath
Comments: Wonderful collection of short stories by one of our favorite writers. Includes short stories related to The Last Unicorn and Innkeeper's Song
Lavinia by Ursula K. Leguin
Ursula LeGuin's latest novel is based on a character from Virgil's epic poem The Aeneid. Lavinia is ordered by the gods to marry the Trojan hero, Aeneas. Virgil mentions her briefly, but LeGuin brings her to life.
I have not read this book, but have heard some excerpts read by the author. Sounds wonderful.
