Only a few 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 Ghost Rebellion by Pip Ballantine & Tee Morris -- Yay! The 5th Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences novel is here. I enjoyed this one, I think you will, too. (I posted about it last week)
  • The Last Adventure of Constance Verity by A. Lee Martinez -- Martinez is writing a series, which is enough to get me interested. Add in the hero who's been saving the world for about 30 years, and just wants to be normal, and I'm beyond interested.
  • Shadowed by Karen E. Olson -- so, Nicole Jones' attempt to lie low on Block Island failed. What do you want to bet her Canadian location works out better? Yeah, me neither.
  • Stiletto by Daniel O’Malley -- This is sitting on my TBR shelf (literally), and it's driving me crazy that I can't fit it in for a couple of weeks.
  • Man On A Rock by Grant Sutherland -- Fahrenheit Press' first novella looks like the kind of thriller summers are designed for. (you know, if summers were designed for people who read)
  • Escapology by Ren Warom -- looks like a classic cyberpunk novel, just brand spankin' new.
  • Mechanical Failure by Joe Zieja -- SF with action and humor. I'm reading comparisons to Scalzi and Adams. Even without those, this looks fun.

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to Alois Larc and greatestcatpics for following the blog this week.
