New Books and ARCs, 7/1/16

Just in time for Canada Day and the 4th of July, here’s a fine collection of new books and ARCs that have come into the Scalzi Compound. Which of these would you like to spend a long weekend with? Tell me in the comments!

  1. Cross Talk also. Listened to her reading a chapter of it at Sasquan in Spokane and I think it will be another winner by Connie.

  2. Is that “Life Debt” written in the same present tense as the previous book?

  3. What can you tell us about “Devil’s Evidence”? I don’t know anything about it but the spine’s very handsome.

  4. The previous stack I didn’t recognise any of the authors. In this stack it’s just Connie Willis. Where are all these authors coming from?
    At least JS isn’t in an industry of zero sum competition. Will I buy this book by JS or this book by … ? Oh, what the heck, I’ll buy both.

  5. Me (reading): “My Gym Teacher is an Alien Overlord.”

    My Teen Daughter: Aren’t they all?

  6. “My Gym Teacher is an Alien Overlord.”

    The next great American Novel right there.

  7. Do you ever give these books out to fans? I’ll pay shipping on the Star Wars novel.

  8. Connie Willis, Chuck Windig, and Alastair Reynolds all in one stack. Such wealth!

  9. >> What can you tell us about “Devil’s Evidence”?>>


    Whenever John does one of these, I go look up the books on Amazon, to see if I’d be interested. Usually, I add one or two books to my Wishlist. This time, I added six — The Ford, the Willis, the Oliva, the Ashton, the Dickey and THE DEVIL’S DETECTIVE, since the new one looks interesting but I’d figure it’s better to start at the beginning. So, good list!

  10. The Devil’s Evidence, b/c I enjoyed The Devil’s Detective so much. Also the Ford sounds intriguing (thanks, amazon!).

  11. My Gym Teacher is an Alien Overlord looks interesting, especially because when I was young and in school, my entire class was convinced the gym teacher was at least and alien, if not an overlord.

  12. Connie Willis!!! And maybe “Ghostland” as a gift for a friend, if it lives up to the description.

  13. I really enjoyed Aftermath, so Life Debt’s where it’s at for me.
