Skimpy results for 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:

    This Week's New Releases I'm Excited About and/or You'll Probably See Here Soon:
  • The Accidental Detective by Michael RN Jones -- Meet Victor Jones, Mr. Robot with a less creepy, humorous and Farenheit Press-ish twist.
  • Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames -- a fantasy novel about a mercenary group "getting the band back together" in a world where they're treated like rock stars.
