Sanderson is a favorite, though I was unaware that those two novellas were available in hard copies here in the U.S. Honestly, they all look tempting (especially Eagle in Exile, due to its title alone); I shall note all of these, adding to my already-near-infinite list-pile of intended reading.

Judging by the font, though, I’d say that Harmony House is an ironic title–perhaps horror. I’d Google it, but I’m in a bit of a hurry at present.

Ooh…ooh…give me Eagle in Exile, please! I just finished the first book in that series and it’s an awesome bit of alternate-history. What if the Roman Empire hadn’t fallen and by the 1200’s they landed on the shores of America and started exploring…and running into the various tribes already living here?

I’m currently reading a Borderline. I’ve not been interested in many books this year but Borderline has captured me. I love it.

I’m eagerly awaiting the next Smale book. I loved the first one. I’m really excited about the sequel.

John Lansdale is of course, Joe’s boy! I’m currently reading this book. It’s all kinds of the usual Lansdale awesome!

I’m going to be perverse and wonder if Trekonomics actually does deal with the economics of the Star Trek universe, a post-scarcity civilization. I bought a different one several years back, The Politics of Star Trek, and was quite disappointed; it was badly written and desperately needed the attentions of a good editor.

Asteroid Made of Dragons, for the title alone. Nananoyz, ARC stands for Advance Reader Copy. Publishers send them to libraries and authors and presumably bookstores.
