  1. Pathfinder Tales looks interesting, if only because the font on the series title looks like those old Forgotten Realms and Ravenloft books that used to be published. I shall make a note to look those up. I do hope it is similar, I could use a good shared fantasy setting.

  2. It’s a first! You have a stack of books w/ -zero- titles off my ever-growing books to get list! (Plus, only 1 author I’ve even heard of…)

  3. The Joel Shepherd novel is the latest in his ‘Cassandra Kresnov’ series, which I’ve been enjoying a lot. I’ve already got this one on order; should be out next Tuesday, I think.

  4. ‘Never judge a book by it’s cover’ is actually quite true. I’m a book worm, you will never see me without a book in hand, and to be honest with you, the books that don’t have the best covers, are usually the ones you will see me reading. :D

  5. Robogenesis…..hard to resist finding out what happens after an apocalypse.

  6. How weird – a blurb on the spine! I wonder whether Robogenesis_ (looks like the underscore is part of the title) will include this when it hits the market, or whether anyone here has seen this sort of thing on a published book.

  7. Kindred Rites, definitely. Katharine Eliska Kimbriel’s Afreda series is a constant favorite of mine, and I can’t wait for the new paperback editions to be in my hands.

  8. I really liked Earth Girl, so I’d definitely grab Earth Star first from that pile!

  9. Kindred Rights!!! Though you must read Night Calls too as they go together. Katherine Eliska Kimbrel writes with such a magical story line you instantly see the story happening right before your eyes. A must read!! Can’t reccommend it enough!!

  10. I have Scatter, Adapt, Remember out of the library already.

    I hadn’t heard of Earth Star or her previous book Earth Girl, but the reviews on the first one sold me. A non-dystopian YA FTW! I am now on the e-book wait list for the first one from the library and will probably end up buying them both.

  11. The pathfinder books. The Realms novels really helped pull my wife into gaming, and she still feels kind of disconnected from the pathfinder setting. These would (hopefully) help bridge that gap.

  12. Cripticmirror, This Crumbling Pageant is exactly up your ally. I was able to read this manuscript and feel that it will totally fit your needs.

  13. *alley (sorry about that typo) Should have said, “It’s just what you’re looking for.” :)

  14. These pictures make me drool with envy.its like a hungry person looking at photo’s of a buffet!

  15. I’ve had Scatter, Adapt and Remember for awhile but kept getting distracted with something else when I was going to start it but seeing the Hall of Extinction on Cosmos made me remember I had a book on that subject so I’ll be starting it as soon as I finish my current big fantasy book.

  16. Robogenesis interests me even though I was lukewarm on Robopocalypse. Good on the author for that one.

  17. Robogenesis for me as well. In fact I just went to put Robogenesis on my Wish List. Best part? Lock In came up as “Frequently bought together” with it. Oh Amazon, you know me so well.

  18. Robogenesis all the way. I have read Robopocalypse, and it ranks as one of my all-time favorites. I can’t wait for the sequel!


    Seriously, I picked Earth Girl up on a whim and ended up loving it, and I am prepared to bribe my local library with sundry baked goods if only they will please, please acquire Earth Star as well.
