New Books and ARCs, 10/16/15

A double stack this week, for your pleasure (if for some reason you’re finding it hard to read the titles, here’s a bigger picture). What looks like a nifty read to you? Tell me in the comments!

  1. I totally would say nice things about you if you accidentally shipped me that copy of The Everything Box.

  2. Jealous about the Subterreanan Press Best of Nancy Kress. The Gail Carriger book looks good too.

  3. I already finished The Authorities. Enjoyable, like all Meyer’s stuff. Still amusing but less slapstick than the Magic 2.0 stuff.

    The idea of another Kadrey novel that isn’t Sandman Slim (a series I lost interest in after book 3 or 4) is exciting. I’ve enjoyed every single one of his other books, though Butcher Bird continues to hold my top spot.

  4. I’d love Manners & Mutiny as well. I received Curtsies & Conspiracies for my b-day and will be reading that one soon (hopefully this weekend). Loved the Parasol Protectorate series. I like the title “The Everything Box” so will have to check that out.

  5. Nancy Kress for the win.
    (Am I using that slang right? Golly jeepers, I can’t keep up with all this newfangled phraseology.)

  6. Oh, The Everything Box. I was momentarily thinking it was The Anything Box by Zenna Henderson.

  7. Yes, I thought of The Anything Box too. Come to think of it, it’s been too long since I reread any of Zenna Henderson’s stories.

  8. Just finished the most recent Sandman Slim. Super excited for this new Kadrey book but I have no idea what it’s about. Time for a certain someone to solicit a ‘Big Idea’ piece.

  9. So, in the Star Wars Twilight crossover, do the Sith Lords sparkle if the sun hits them? Asking for a friend.

    For me: Carriger!

    Also, wasn’t The Lady Of The Ice already an Ellis Peters novel?

  10. I know many people who liked the Krampus Book, but they are not german, and I found the story is very americanised – if that is actually a word.

  11. Everything Box caught my eye, based upon title alone. (And Krampus, but i’ve recently seen several similarly titled ones in the library)

  12. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought of the Anything Box when I saw the title on the first book… Hmm, I don’t think I have ANY of Zenna Henderson’s books on my Kindle; guess it’s time to check amazon to see if any of them are there. Her “The People” series were among my favorites since I was a teenager…

  13. I’d love to spend a couple of weeks with Illuminae, immerse myself in another space opera, but I don’t have that kind of reading time. But if What The Book (a bookstore in Seoul, South Korea) has a copy of it next weekend, I’ll jump into the book and see where it takes me…

  14. The Everything Box triggered a whole nostalgia cycle for me because it immediately reminded me of The Anything Box by Zenna Henderson, which is one of the best “aliens among us” collection of stories. Ever.

  15. I’m quite keen on Our Lady of The Ice. But I think there may be doubling up of new book piles going on here, I’d swear I added some of the books to my list from previous new book posts…
