New Books and ARCs, 6/14/17

Personally I find it reassuring that no matter what, new books and ARCs keep coming along. Here’s today’s stack. What here is on your own personal “to get” list?

  1. Johne Cook – Wisconsin, USA – Technical writer by day, creative writer and editor by night, I like prog rock, film noir, space opera, and the Green Bay Packers.

    Huh. I wonder if ‘Super Hero’ will escape the Marvel / DC joint trademark on ‘superhero.’

  2. Books ARE a comfort.* My mother has been known to say, “Books make me feel rich.”
    I think she might prefer actual wealth, (so she could buy more books?), but she has made a good go as it is. There is not a book-free space in sight in her house, and there are a couple thou in our shared kindle account.
    * I am not so much a cat person, so I am stuck with inanimate sources.

  3. Katana at Super Hero High is a licensed set of books based on the DC Super Hero Girls line of action figures. (Thank you, Wikipedia.)

  4. I picked up Yoon Ha Lee’s new book Raven Stratagum. Loved the first one, quickly working through this one (the second)

  5. Well, I wanted to say something about Dr Gribbleflotz (sp?) on the previous pile of books, but comments were closed!! Darn! You gotta ease up on the short time we have to jump and say something!!! Anyways, I like the 1632 stories, having grown up in Grantsville and just missed the time slip… well, kinda.

    I could hear the mine when I stayed at my Grandma’s. So there! And wife was a union officer, also too.

    This time:

    Bones of the Earth has a ring to it, as does Now I Rise…

    I would spend some time looking over At the Table of Wolves, and The City of Brass, although steampunk, meh, some are fun, but meh… if you’re going to invent a mysterious energy source, why not plug it into a starship? instead of a brass robot? But no substitute for holding a book, and reading the first few pages, and the summary inside the front, or on the back.

  6. 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 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. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

  7. Forgive me if you’ve answered this before, but what do you think of the Correia’s writing? (I’m a fan of both your books and his, so this isn’t asked in order to stir anything up. I’m genuinely curious and love when writers examine other writers’ work.)

  8. I picked up Hough’s last trilogy based on a Big Idea from here, and I loved every page. Can’t wait to read his new stuff!

  9. There was a hugo nominated book called Bones of the Earth. Isn’t it kind of weird to reuse the exact same book name in the same genre?
