  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. John, what do you mean by ARC? That term is unfamiliar to me.

  4. Love me some Joe Lansdale. Appetite has been whetted again recently by the new Sundance channel series “Hap and Leonard”.

  5. stillmorewords – Small-town girl, living in a big city. Former Coastie, married with 2 kids. Inveterate reader of all genres, though non-fiction and YA currently rule. Former indie bookstore employee, small business owner, tea drinker.

    Borderline is *excellent*! I was very impressed with the way the author handled the mental illness of the main character…

  6. The Last Mortal Bond, definitely! Been waiting (im)patiently and it is almost here! I’m expecting an awesome conclusion to the Unhewn Throne trilogy!

  7. I’m super looking forward to Borderline; I put in a purchase request at my county library system and requested a copy via interlibrary loan too.

  8. lkeke35 – I am a Librarian Clerk in the Midwestern US. Its my job to know stuff (or at the very least, admit I know nothing, and go find out!) I love SciFi and Horror, Books, Movies, and television shows. I celebrate Blackness all year round. I am intolerant of intolerance.

    Loved the first Eagle in Exile book!

    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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Rob Kraitt – Rob Kraitt and writing partner, the irrepressible Ashley Pannell (creator of the successful video game franchise NAUGHTY BEAR) are possibly the greatest screenwriting partnership never to be produced! Their fairy tale extravaganza BEANSTALK went as far as Tim Burton - but not quite far enough! - and their madcap musical ME AND MY FROG was a winner in the now defunct UK Film Council's 25 Words Or Less Competition. Unfortunately for cinema goers everywhere, these and many other amazing movies never saw the light of a cinema projector. Rob is now an agent at Casarotto Ramsay and Associates Limited in London, representing writing and directing talent; and selling books for film & television adaptation. He has also served on the board of the Film Agency for Wales and participated on panels and masterclasses for the Edinburgh International Film Festival, the Writer’s Guild of Great Britain and the International Screenwriter’s Festival amongst others. He was also part of the BFI’s delegation to Shanghai and Beijing in 2015. Rob started his career as a script editor and consultant for many top film production companies in the UK including Working Title, Focus, Pathé Productions, Miramax and Ruby Films as well as the European Media Development Agency.

    What on earth is Trekonomics?! Do tell…

  13. Harmony House, followed closely by Borderline. Followed by most of the rest of the stack.

  14. dreamoore – I write science fiction and fantasy-- more on the fantasy end, generally speaking. I love to cook-- like crazy. I'm addicted to both coffee and tea, the second of which tends to show up a lot in my writing. Go ahead, laugh, make jokes about it--sometimes, I'm tempted to. I love both cats and dogs (grew up with cats, now have a puppy). I have another blog, here: dreamooresworlds.blogspot.com

    Have the Sanderson stories :) Super excited about the Last Mortal Bond coming out soon!

  15. Looking at that stack, I have reached the conclusion that we have run out of titles, much like we have run out of corporate names and drug brands.

  16. Do you read all the ARC you recive because seems like you post a new stack every few days and I think my brain would melt out of my ears at that pace.
