Odds 'n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

  • The Passenger by Lisa Lutz -- I'm hearing good things about this, and the description sold me even without hearing anything. I just messed up and got my dates wrong, so I didn't have this ordered. Hoping to get my hands on this soon.
  • Chaos Choreography by Seanan McGuire -- blah
  • Borderline by Mishell Baker -- A little bit of Genrenauts, a little bit of Fringe, a little...I don't know what. Just go read the description I linked. If nothing else, the Seanan McGuire blurb at the bottom of this page should be enough to convince you if you're on the fence.
  • East Of The City by Grant Sutherland -- I've been wanting to get to the previous novel for a couple of months, if Fahrenheit Press would just slow down a minute so I can catch up, that'd really help.
  • Who Wants To Be The Prince Of Darkness? by Michael Boatman -- a reality show to find Lucifer's replacement? Should be good for a laugh or three.
  • The Courier by Gerald Brandt -- a little SF, a little thriller . . . looks like a lot of fun.
  • Arkwright by Allen Steele -- this looks like the most realistic SF novel since . . . Clarke or Crichton, maybe?

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to Fernando Ortiz, Jr. and ebookbump for following the blog this week.
