Recently I asked him what he was reading. His reply:
I'm reading Saladin Ahmed's Throne of The Crescent Moon. It's like 1001 Arabian Nights meets high fantasy, and so far it's pretty awesome. Saladin has written a number of cool short stories, and this is his first book. And it's a heck of a splash in the genre. It's nice not getting the same old orcs/elves/rangers routine, but something different. Goes a long way with me. And it's not just that it's something different, Saladin can spin a good yarn, so it's been a lot of fun so far.Visit Tobias S. Buckell's website and blog.
