Lock In on the August 2014 LibraryReads List

This is a nice way to start the week: Every month, librarians pick the 10 books they are most looking forward to, out of all the books published that month, in the Library Reads List. And for¬†August, Lock In is one of them. That’s really¬†cool. Note that the Library Reads List is across all genres, not just science fiction and fantasy, which makes it even cooler — it’s nice to be peered with every kind of fiction (also on the list for August: The Magician’s Land by Lev Grossman. Awesome).

There’s more happy news for Lock In coming, but I’m waiting to find out when I can share it. When I can, I will. In the meantime, this is certainly more than good enough. It’s a lovely thing to know librarians like your book.

  1. John, finally read Unlocked last night. Loved it. I really like the first-person narrative style of this (and World War Z). And I’m happy to report that it didn’t trigger any of my paralysis phobias (you might recall I asked if you thought it would). Really looking forward to Lock In, though I will have to wait a few extra days until I get my signed copy when you come to Raleigh.

  2. I wasn’t particularly interested in Lock In when I first heard about it; I figured I’d probably read it, but it wasn’t on my GET IT ASAP list. And then I read Unlocked. And now I’ve preordered Lock In, because damn.

  3. My experience exactly parallels Michael Johnston’s – which tells me, Mr Scalzi, that not only are you good at marketing, you are also a very good writer!
