March 2007 books

The Northern Ireland Assembly had an election in March 2007, the last one for which I did not do TV commentary, though I went over a few days later in the wake of P-Con and delivered a lecture about voting (powerpoint preserved here):

Apart from that, I had a day-trip to the Hague, and a longer trip to Vienna and Prishtina, all for work.

Only 14 books this month:

Non-fiction 3 (YTD 19)
Independent Diplomat: Dispatches from an Unaccountable Elite, by Carne Ross
Diplomacy Lessons: Realism for an Unloved Superpower, by John Brady Kiesling

1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare, by James Shapiro

SF 4 (YTD 17)
Glorifying Terrorism, ed. Farah Mendlesohn
Master of Earth and Water, by Diana L. Paxson and Adrienne Martine-Barnes
Living Next Door to the God of Love, by Justina Robson
Spin Control, by Chris Moriarty


Comics 1 (YTD 6)
Blankets, by Craig Thompson

Doctor Who 6 (YTD 11)
Doctor Who - The Massacre, by John Lucarotti
Doctor Who - The Ark, by Paul Erickson
Doctor Who - The Celestial Toymaker, by Gerry Davis and Alison Bingeman
Doctor Who - The Gunfighters, by Donald Cotton
Doctor Who - The Savages, by Ian Stuart Black
Doctor Who - The War Machines, by Ian Stuart Black


4,000 pages (YTD 18,400)
5/14 by women (YTD 17/59)
None by PoC (YTD 2/59)

The two best of these were the excellent graphic novel Blankets, which you can get here, and Shapiro's look at Shakespeare in 1599, which you can get here. I do not particularly recommend the novelisation of problematic Doctor Who story The Celestial Toymaker, but you can get it here anyway (at a price).
