New Books and ARCs, 7/15/16

Hey, you look like someone who could use some reading ideas going into the weekend. Here’s this week’s stack of new books and ARCs. What looks like you want to dig into it? Tell us in the comments!
The Age of Myth was *amazeballs*. I’m extremely curious about How to Hang a Witch, as I’ve heard mixed reviews…
A call to duty looks interesting, I’d think I would start with that one.
Didn’t A Call To Duty get published in 2014?
Just going by the title: How To Hang A Witch. DIY/SelfHelp Literature must be useful.
Oh my… Weber AND Zahn? I’ll have to trek to the book store thingy.
I’m a big fan of Lee and Miller; I’ve just finished my second read through of Alliance of Equals.
Well, if you have an exploded view of viscera, you might need a reanimatrix …
A Long Time Until Now and A Call to Duty were previously published in hardcover and/or trade paperback. I really want to read Alliance of Equals, but I really ought to finish reading Seveneyes and The Fifth Season and some shorter fiction before the end of the month.
I will be all over ‘How to Hang a Witch’!
I really enjoyed Masks and Shadows so I will probably like Congress of Secrets. It looks a little bit like a retelling of The Scarlet Pimpernel.
If they had a book on “How to Hang a Window Treatment” I could use that.
I just finished Age of Myth last week.
It’s good stuff.
I suspect some buyers will be disappointed that “Reanimatrix” isn’t related to the Matrix movies. Other potential buyers may be turned off thinking that it *is*.
If you like the Liaden universe, Alliance of Equals is nice, but felt too short to me, rather like a novella and a couple of short stories interleaved. Call of Duty is okay if you like Weber. Age of Myth looks like it could be good.
Viscera caught my eye, if only because it’s one of my favorite words.
I liked Alliance of Equals, but I have to disclose that I am a long-standing fan of Lee and Miller.
Age of Myth is on my “when its in paperback” list already, and A Long Time Until Now is waiting at my bookstore to be bought.
Alliance of Equals is on its third read now, and then I’m off to learn How to Hang a Witch.
So Michael J. Sullivan has turned the spigot back on, then, after a good chunk of time with no books. Excellent. I am also entertained that a book about hanging witches is by someone named “Mather.” That detail would get the book picked up off the shelf, for sure.
Loved Alliance of Equals!
Alliance of Equals is a great read, and you can read it without having read other books in the Liaden Universe. Bet you can’t read just one.
Reanimatrix sounds interesting. Any relation to The Animatrix?
