    I’ve heard DEVIL’S CALL is amazing:-D

  2. “The End of the World Running Club”

    Ah, I see someone has expressed the exact moment when I’ll take up running…

  3. Eeeeee! I have been waiting for The Caledonian Gambit for months! I can’t wait to have it in my hands. The spine is very pretty. And I’m a sucker for A’s with no horizontal line.

  4. I also am intrigued by the Zahn; I’ve been reading him since before the Star Wars books, when you could buy a paperback for (maybe) three bucks. I will also look into those The Kid From Planet Z books, to see if they might interest my young one.

  5. Remake Chronicles – Adam-Troy Castro is the award-winning author of the Andrea Cort novels, which include EMISSARIES FROM THE DEAD and THE THIRD CLAW OF GOD. His newest books for 2011 include Z IS FOR ZOMBIE and V IS FOR VAMPIRE (both Eos, and both produced with illustrator Johnny Atomic. Look forward to the Gustav Gloom series, coming from Grossett and Dunlap in 2012!

    I am almost done with the Michael Poole book, which is terrific.

  6. I remember liking Tim Zahn’s books, Star Wars and otherwise. Cool beans.

    Just from the title, The Kid From Planet Z sounds good. I’m presuming YA, but a good YA/teen book ought to appeal to adult level readers too. (Disclaier: Like most here, I was reading in the adult level books I the library by 12, college level reading. So the “juvenile” SF&F books at Dalton’s and Waldenbooks and so on were reading fare, along with then-current stuff. And yeah, I remember when paperbacks cost from $1.25 to $3.00. A good portion of my allowance always went to SF&F books, of which I’m still proud. There were also two or three series of really good science books aimed for YA audiences back then. Those are still good, too.

  7. Only here to see how many people comment on the two copies of Dark Immolation. (Mine makes 3 so far.) Would make a good band name, too. ;)

  8. So, I looked up The Kid From Planet Z and (yes, School Teacher) I discovered it’s two little chapter books for early readers, with (cool!) illustrations. :) I’ll pass, but I bet they’d be great fun for elementary or younger kids. It seems Zeke Zander and his family re aliens whose ship crash-lands on Earth, they pretend to be humans, but with antennae and a talking cat names Zeus, this is not so easy. In the second little book, Zeke gets the zee bop version of the flu, with symptoms like green goo from his eyes. (All this from the Amazon summary). I’m sensing a strong Z theme. Zee or Zed. They sound charming.

  9. 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.

    Definitely Zahn’s book

  10. I got The Punch Escrow from NetGalley, I read it cover to cover over 2 nights. Probably my favorite SF book since RPO.
