New Books and ARCs, 7/28/17

For your delight, this last weekend of July: A stack of new books and ARCs. Is there anything here that would make it to your own “must read” stack? Tell us in the comments!

  1. Helena Echlin and Malena Watrous (“Sparked”) were two of my instructors for the Stanford Online Novel Writing program. I’m really looking forward to reading their book!

  2. I audibly gasped when I saw “Ka” at the top. So psyched for some new fiction from John Crowley.

  3. So, about McCain, there’s this: (which, summary, is that by voting yes on the MTP, and then voting no on the bill, McCain has prevented the Senate from using reconciliation on the topic for the rest of the year). IF this is true, then McCain’s MTP vote was a thoughtful, deliberate means to throw McConnell on his turtle back in the middle of an Arizonan heat wave.

  4. Blast it I clicked on a wrong thing please feel to delete that. (Right comment wrong post.)

  5. I liked the first Lucy and Andy Neanderthal; I’ll suggest our youth librarian look at picking up book 2.

  6. I did not know George r r Martin did graphic novels. If it’s available on Kindle, I’ll get it (my wife can’t complain about the space being taken up by me buying virtual books).

  7. I read “The Last One” by Alexandra Oliva several weeks ago and enjoyed it a lot. The idea that a contestant during filming of a reality show would interpret everything that happened through the lens of what it might mean for the contest was a good hook. A few things stretched credulity, but I was able to suspend disbelief enough.

  8. I was fortunate enough to attend Readercon this year in Quincy MA in July and heard John Crowley do a reading from _Ka_ and talk a little about the background of the novel. It got me very psyched to read it once it comes out. You know it was an event when Samuel R Delaney comes to your reading…
