New Books and ARCs, 8/31/15 + Reminder: Dayton Tour Stop 9/1/15!

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.

  1. Hey, I’ve been reading a lot of Jim Kjelgaard lately, so The Hunter Returns for me!

  2. “The Dead House” sounds interesting and ambitious…I may have to give it a try. I already have the Carroll.

  3. 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.

  4. 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,
    –Nuclear-trained engineer

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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!
