New Books and ARCs, 5/9/16

That’s right, we’re still working through the immense stack of new books and ARCs that have come into the Scalzi Compound recently. Some excellent books here, though, so this is not exactly a burden to do. What here excites your eyeballs? Tell us all in the comments!

Is HEROINE COMPLEX the one about the two best Asian friends, one of whom is a superheroine? If so, that’s the one I’m excited about.

Mongrels, definitely! Werewolves with a West Texas feel! I enjoyed meeting the author, Stephen Jones, at a book signing Saturday in Santa Fe. He’s a wealth of knowledge about werewolves. Should be an interesting book!

Seconding what dhuff said! The Parasol Protectorate is great fun. There also seems to be some odd synchronicity in the stack with A World Without You and Secrets of Solace next to each other.

I had to look up “Waypoint Kangaroo” and found a discussion of it on “Query Shark” – it seems the author has a great style of query letter. Made the book sound very entertaining, too.

John, your little blurb said “we …”. Does Athena earn her pocket money by opening all the book deliveries and stacking them? I’m guessing you do the photography with the new camera but I’ve yet to see a scamperbeast on top of a pile getting a different view on the world.
