  1. The Ray Palmer bio looks fascinating; the giants of 20th century SF were a colorful bunch. Anybody who edited pulp magazines during the day and shrunk himself to subatomic size to fight crime at night had to be an interesting guy.

  2. Wow, first time ever one of these posts didn’t have even *one book from my books to get list…

  3. Okay, I want third dibs on the Ray Palmer after John and David. However, I’m happy to read the new Liaden book while waiting…..

  4. Noah’s Boy by Sarah Hoyt looks like a good option for a beach vacation. Might have valuable hints if the tide comes in higher than expected.

  5. I’d be interested in two or three random books from your pile that gets donated to a library.

  6. I’m new to Sarah A. Hoyt, but read DRAW ONE IN THE DARK and then plunged into that bookish phase of OH MY GOSH, I MUST READ ALLLLL THE BOOKS! So now I’m curious about NOAH’S BOY, and where it fits …

  7. The sheer tonnage of new books/arcs you receive is… impressive. Fess up: Are you using them to insulate a giant fallout shelter in the back yard? Because if you can actually read all these… I don’t think you’re really human.

  8. For no particular reason I can explain, “Ancillary Justice” seems like it would be interesting. To be honest, it’s probably just that I think “ancillary” is a fascinatingly weird word.

  9. Before the Fall! I enjoyed Fade to Black so much more than I expected–I never thought I’d find a fantasy novel that reminded me of “Blade Runner”–and I’m desperate to find out what happens next!

  10. I would probably sacrifice some relatives for a copy of the Liaden Universe Constellation by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. They are super world builders and really wonderful folks, too.

  11. New “Machine of Death” book! (“This is How You Die.”) I can’t wait much longer. New book, game coming out one of these days…
