Perdido Street Station by China Mieville

Use of Weapons by Iain M. Banks

Xenocide by Orson Scott Card

And thus the list is complete, with only a week to spare.

* * *
"Crooked Letter, The" by Sean Williams, started on June 14th and finished on July 17th. A bold fantasy novel about two twins who are so closely linked that when one of them dies, our world and the afterlife are pulled together to try and reunite them.

"Vellum" by Hal Duncan, started on August 5th and finished on August 9th. A very challenging fantasy novel, as the perspective is constantly shifting and you can't count on any information you thought you knew about any of the characters.

"Quicksilver" by Neal Stephenson, started on August 9th and finished on August 15th. An alternate history novel about a young natural philosopher and his tale that connects him to some of the greatest scientists of the 17th century.

"Ysabel" by Guy Gavriel Kay, started on August 21st and finished on August 28th. A fantasy novel set in modern France about a boy struggling to find his identity when the forces of history and destiny conspire to change his life.
