  1. I’m reading it right now, so I can say that Tremontaine is wonderful, not surprising given it’s set in Ellen Kushner’s Riverside series. And Department Zero sounds interesting.

  2. There’s a new book by Steven Brust?!? *want*

    (I’ve already got Tremontaine on my Kindle, and recommend it highly.)

  3. I’m totally unfamiliar with whatever series or universe Tremontaine belongs to. Can someone explain why its spine looks like a standard movie advertisement, with the star’s name above the title and the lesser actors below? Is it an anthology, a shared work, or what?

  4. 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 fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black part machine 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 more than a few miles at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    Where the hell is Tesla? I hope this is a book about a cat that is secretly sentient and goes on amazing adventures and is the only thing keeping the human race from destruction.

  5. 180 SECONDS looks like YA Romance. Maybe a nice change of pace for someone other than me. I have DEPARTMENT ZERO but I haven’t started it yet.

  6. I’m dying to read Tremontaine after seeing a little excerpt. That world has always intrigued me — beautifully sketched out and lightly gilded.

  7. I must be wired differently. Occasionally, I get hints like this. First impressions: “Ooh, lovely typography! What’s that one?” (Among the fairly standard condensed grotesque sans-serifs, others stand out. Not that there’s not also a place for the condensed sans-es. Next impression: “Huh, ‘The Wrong Unit,’ now that sounds interesting. Wait, why would I think that’s more interesting than those others. I dunno. Huh.” A lot of great titles in these, but I’m sorry I don’t know most of the series and authors. I am very behind in my To Read pile, but I am (very slowly) catching up.

  8. WHERE THE HELL IS TESLA? Is about a car, not a cat. It’s an autonomous Tesla which drives to Canada after its owner just sends it around a corner to park itself while he shops.

  9. Deluca Music Academy – Deluca Music Academy offering quality Electric & Acoustic Guitar, Piano, Drum set, Voice, Singing, Bass, Violin, Cello, Ukulele, Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute lessons in Hatboro, Horsham Warminster, Warrington, Willow Grove, Abington, Huntingdon Valley and the surrounding area.

  10. @gottacook: Tremontaine is a serialized story by various authors set in the universe of Ellen Kushner’s Riverside novels, which began with Swordspoint. It was originally published monthly as an e-book but now it’s out in print. This month’s Locus Magazine interviews Kushner.

  11. Brust and White’s “The Skill of Our Hands” will soon be in _my_ hands. ;) And the title “Where the Hell is Tesla” has got a nice, intriguing hook. The genius? The car? A pet? A friend? Will have to learn more.

  12. I’m curious about The God Wave and The Forgotten Girl.

  13. Gotta love the the title “Where the Hell is Tesla?”. I don’t know anything about it, but I’d pick it up just for the title!

    Aaaaaaa Tremontaine!! So glad there’s going to be a hard copy!
