Top Distractions of 2012

It’s a new year, a natural time to look back and reflect on what we’ve done in the previous annum. And so, in that spirit, here at the Serial Distractions Badger Depository and Folk Music Museum, I’ve brought together the top reviews over the past year.

As I state on my Reviews page–I don’t present a review on this site unless I think it is something worth taking a look at in the first place. This, coupled with the fact that I don’t use a rating system in my reviews, makes it hard to narrow things down to a top ten. Nevertheless, I want to highlight some of what I will refer to as “Top Distractions” from the previous year. These items are presented in no particular order:

Edge of Dark Water by Joe R. Lansdale

Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Zombie, Illinois by Scott Kenemore

Conjure Wife by Fritz Leiber

The Merkabah Rider: Have Glyphs Will Travel by Edward M. Erdelac

Martyrs and Monsters by Robert Dunbar

Westlake Soul by Rio Youers

Sudden Death Overtime by Steve Vernon

At the End of the Road by Grant Jerkins

X0 by Sherrie Cronin

About Shedrick

I am a professional librarian and a part-time writer that's working to do that the other way around. I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats. When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.
