  1. I can’t decide if I want to read the Aliette de Bodard or not – the first one was … dark…

    Am very jealous of you having The Cold Eye, though. Is it January yet?

  2. I keep hoping to see a new Matthew Stover book in one of these stacks. I know you’re a fan, any chance you know what projects he’s up to these days?

  3. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word 🤬 I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. Reading transports me to places that are inaccessible to me right now. Whether those places address in space or in areas I'm unable to travel, I am grateful for books and authors who keep my mind occupied. I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night.

    Both the Alwyn Hamilton books titles look interesting.

  4. Ooh, you already have The Cold Eye! I’ve already pre-ordered that one. Wasn’t enamored of Alliette de Bodard’s first book – maybe check it out from library. And The Census Taker certainly piques my interest.

  5. ARC = Advanced Reading Copy. An version of the book sent out early so there can be reviews already in existence when the book officially comes out. It may have some typos and other minor differences from the final version.

    Nowadays, Baen at least will sell you ARCs of ebooks if you are such a devoted fan you just can’t wait another month or two for Space Goat III: Ungulate Revenge.

  6. I’m very looking forward to Upside Down, now that I’m over being angry at myself for not submitting to it.

  7. The Mieville looks good, but what I really want is the recipe for sriracha peanut butter cookies. The cookie you tweeted about was a thing of beauty.
