As we head into the holiday weekend, here is a stack of very fine new books and ARCs for you to peruse. What here would you like to find in your Easter basket? Tell us in the comments!
Ooh, that Jeff Lemire book looks good!
The Kay Kenyon, definitely
Ooh. Anything new by Richard Kadrey goes right to the top of my reading queue.
Aaaahhh! The Kill Society!!!
Can u tell I’m excited about that one?
+1 for Richard Kadrey. And Christopher Brown caught my eye because I live in said flyover state. Might have to give that a try, too.
Richard Kadrey’s KILL SOCIETY.
Carrie Vaughn’s Bannerless! Post apocalyptic mystery!
I know absolutely nothing about Christopher Brown, but Tropic of Kansas is a great title.
Yes, Tropic of Kansas catches the eye, Plus, I got the SOON picture with Lopsided Cat twice running!
Sometimes you gotta go non-fiction. I’m excited about “The Physics of Everyday Things”.
The Kadrey, definitely.
“Bannerless” sounds like a political commentary rather than sci-fi/fantasy…
I’m surprised I don’t recognize any of the authors or titles in this stack except Carrie Vaughn and Richard Kadrey. I -try- to keep at least halfway up on forthcoming books, to have an idea which ones I might want to purchase and read.
(Oh god, have I reached the age where choosing books runs into issues of selectile dysfunction?)

I want to read the Marina J. Lostetter book because the title conjures fond memories of philosophy seminars past.
I can’t say I recognise any of those author’s names, but that’s what I like about this thread- it gives me ideas for so many new books to try.
Kadrey is already on my Amazon UK list.
THE GOD what? That spine design is not helping me here.
AT THE TABLE OF WOLVES would be top of my list. Most intriguing title in an impressive stack of good titles.
Bannerless by Carrie Vaughn. Although, being Jewish, there is no Easter basket in which to put it.
I am waiting very impatiently for “Bannerless.”
Pretty sure that’s “The God Peak” – but my eyes probably aren’t any better than yours are. I’m just willing to go out on a limb.
Is the Jeff Lemire a graphic novel? If so, that piques my interest. The Richard Kadrey automatically is a must-flip through as well.
Having just read a Carrie Vaughn sort-of-young-adult novel and enjoyed it, I’m intrigued by the one in the stack.
Yes on Kadrey and Vaughn and pretty sure that’s The God Peak. For my part I couldn’t quite make out the last name of the author of An Excess Male, can someone help?
