View From a Hotel Window: Iowa City + New Books and ARCs, 10/2/15

First, the view out my hotel window!

Well, it’s not a parking lot. The room itself is perfectly nice, however, so. For those of you in or near Iowa City, my events are tomorrow: I have a reading/Q&A at 4pm at 135 South Dubuque St (the former Wedge space, I am told) and I will have a signing there immediately thereafter). Come on down!

And now, new books and ARCs that have come to the Scalzi Compound this week. Obviously I took the picture before I left. Here’s what we have:

What looks good to you? Tell me in the comments!

Nope, nope, nothing interesting there…oh, wait! :)

Why did I assume that basically every comment in this thread so far would be about one book? (Assumed correctly, I might add.)

I’ll make a feeble effort to discuss something else. Um, Future Perfect sounds interesting. Anyone know…no, I can’t do it. Mercy FTW! :D

Trail of the Dead is apparently the second book in a post-apocalyptic series in which a teenaged Apache girl named Lozen has been forced to hunt genetically engineered monsters who have escaped the control of the ruling elite class. Also, she apparently has an enigmatic Bigfoot friend named Hally.

To paraphrase Nicolas Cage, how have I not already read this series?!

OK, davea47, here’s the first verse. What comes next?

Pretty warship, flying through that gate
Pretty warship, Anaander whom you hate
Pretty warship, I don’t believe it, can it be true
No one can plot as good as you … Mercy!

Just wanted to thank you for posting the pictures of the new book stacks you get. First thing I do is trot to Goodreads and look up each one and decide what I want to buy. Your pictures are about the closest thing I have found to a “new books this week” site.

p.s. Any publishers reading this please send him more new books
