I have begun reading Burning Silk by Destiny Kinal in its entirety and will be writing a review for it in the near future. Although I am only on page 40, I am struck that Kinal’s writing is that of an experienced, not first-time, novelist–very impressive. I had previously read the first few chapters as HNRO editor and relied on my reviewer’s opinion to recommend this book as my pick for Stephanie Barko’s interview, and it is about time that I read it in its entirety.
First, however, I will post a review of Sam Baty’s Footsteps to Forever, a copy of which was kindly (and quickly) sent to me by the author. I am three-quarters of the way through and hope to have a review up in the next two weeks.
