First: Look, the last stack of new books/ARCs of August, and there’s some very fine work in here. Tell me which things trip your trigger in the comments.
Second: A reminder that tomorrow, September 1st, I will be at Books & Co in Dayton (the The Greene Shopping Center) for a tour stop. 7pm! Come on by and see me actually rested for an event for once! And Columbus, remember I’ll be visiting you at the OSU Bookstore on the 3rd; more details on that to come.
“Teaching the Dog to Read,” naturally.
Hey, I’ve been reading a lot of Jim Kjelgaard lately, so The Hunter Returns for me!
Eleanor by Jason Gurley. Really enjoyed the original independent release and looking forward to the new version.

The Lee and Miller collection. The Liaden Universe has brought me a lot of fun reading!
Was one of the early readers of Eleanor. Congrats on getting an ARC. It was great before…looking forward to re-reading it now.
Oooh, new Jonathon Carrol! Hurray!
Accidental Terrorist and Liberty: 1784 both look good.
Definitely Liar’s Island – love Pratt’s writing!
Have already read “Teaching The Dog To Read,” and I really liked it.
“The Dead House” sounds interesting and ambitious…I may have to give it a try. I already have the Carroll.
The Accidental Terrorist. The title alone beckons my funny bone.
My attention is definitely on the Pratt and the Carroll.
Have I mentioned today that I am insanely jealous of Mr. Scalzi for getting free copies of all the Sub Press books? No? OK, consider it mentioned.
the The Greene Shopping Center -> is that like “The La Traviata” from Mickey Blue Eyes? :)
All of the Baen titles look interesting… just saying.
The Liaden Universe one reminds me that I am WAY behind on that series.
I haven’t read The Hunter Returns (Drake/Kjelgaard), but the short novel from which it is expanded, Fire-hunter (1951), was quite influential to my 6 year old mind.
Necessity delivers invention. The hero observes, infers, assembles, and improves his way to triumph. The heroine surpasses him with even better observations, deductions and constructions.
Science! And Engineering!
Get your kids to read this one,
WOOOOOOO for Sound! I loved its companion novel, Salvage so much (personally feel it should have won the Andre Norton award, just sayin’), and I look forward to revisiting that future and the characters!
The Dead House looks really interesting. Just pre-ordered it.
The one piquing my curtiosity is the new David Levithan. Need to point our YA librarian at that one.
I was wondering why that mall sounded familiar, then realized I used to go there once upon a time, when I lived in Xenia.
Very cool to see Bill Shunn’s book in the stack!
OMG! Must go find The Hunter Returns – well, as soon as I get paid, that is! Libraries are awesome, but I want to keep that one, for sure!
