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 Author Stories Podcast Episode 336 | Brad Parks Interview -- Hank Garner talks to Parks about Closer than You Know and many other things. I, for one, cheered when he said he hoped there'd be more Carter Ross books in the future (the people in Cost-co near me when I heard that probably thought I was way too excited about the bakery selection).

  • Closer Than You Know by Brad Parks -- a thriller to make you lose sleep, make you lose hope, make you distrust almost everyone around you -- that you'll not want to put down. Seriously, thinking about it now gets my blood pressure spiking, and I read it last year. See everything I had to say about it here.
  • Smoke Eaters by Sean Grigsby -- a very original futuristic UF about firefighters and dragons. Not that I should have to say more than that, but here's my initial post
  • Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs -- Charles and Anna's 5th book brings them back to Montana to hunt a threat to their pack. I'll hopefully get a post up about this mid-week, but fans'll dig it.
  • Tricks for Free by Seanan McGuire -- The latest Incryptid novel. After Magic for Nothing you had to expect a title like this. I can't wait to read what happens next to Annie.
  • Good Guys by Steven Brust -- a snarky procedural about magic and bureaucracy
  • Mr. Neutron by Mr. Neutron -- a nifty political satire with a title I misspelled every time I typed it this week, here's my post about it.

Lastly, I'd like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to Jess T. and steamstefny for following the blog this week.
