STORIES 2007

When you read over 200 stories a year, it's hard to remember all of them. I don't know that this will be a strict top ten, although the top story is definitely the best story I've read this year. Otherwise, these are the stories I remember most from the past year...

1. "The Merchant and the Alchemist's Gate" by Ted Chiang
2. "Unpossible" by Daryl Gregory
3. "Urdumheim" by Michael Swanwick
4. "Jesus Christ, Reanimator" by Ken MacLeod
5. "Don't Ask" by M. Rickert
6. "Voluntary Committal" by Joe Hill
7. "Yellow Card Man" by Paolo Bacigalupi
8. "The Ice Dragon" by George R.R. Martin
9. "I, Row-Boat" by Cory Doctorow
10. "X-Country" by Robert Reed

hello!
I'm a big Paulo Coelho's fan and I don't know if you heard about his blog
http://www.paulocoelhoblog.com
I've started as a fan and now I'm collaborating with him and thought that you would like to enter his universe.
Check the blog.
if you want, or subscribe to his newsletter
http://www.warriorofthelight.com/engl/index.html
You'll see a community of warriors of light sharing ideas, dreams and most importantly following their personal legend.

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

The Warrior of Light pays attention to small things because they can severely hamper him.

(Manual of the Warrior of Light)



Merry Christmas!
