Happy Monday — here’s a lovely stack of new books and ARCs for you peruse as this week gets started. If you see something you’re interested in, tell us in the comments!
If that Dan Jones’ The Templars on the very bottom is history, it’s going to be quite good. He’s a feisty writer and the story is incredible. Their downfall at the hands of a venal, dishonest king led to the stake for many of their leaders.
I have The Brightest Fell on pre-order and have slowly been getting more and more excited as September approaches…
Ooooh, the new October Day! Which I should be able to get from the library in about six months. :( Stupid DAW and their DRM.
Agree on the Dan Jones. His book on the Plantagenets was fantastic.
Terminal Alliance and The Brightest Fell!
Looking forward to both of those.
I think I have Song of Edmon on my kindle as part of my prime reading.
I don’t normally read fantasy, but it’s high time I tuned in to Seanan McGuire. So that’s where I’m headed next.
Oooh, the Seanan Macguire, the Templar book and the Jim Hines all look good. I’ll have to see what my library can do.
SQUEEE Terminal Alliance!
Another voice for the ‘Oooh, another Seanan/October Daye book!’ choir here.
I shall have to check out Mr Hine’s series also. Huzzah!
Love John’s take on the tragic events in Houston. Must be waiting to jump on Trump.
Hines, McGuire, I’ll read anything they write.
Dan Jones – I already have 2 of his books in my to-be-read list, and someday I’ll get around to Seanan Macguire’s October Daye series. I’ve been reading Macguire’s Incryptid series and enjoying it a lot.
I’d like to read the tribute to Chip. Other things, too. But that, first.
Until this post, I had never heard of The Assimilated Cuban’s Guide to Quantum Santeria. I just ordered a copy. The reviews are quite good, and that’s an irresistible title.
The Assimilated Cuban’s Guide to Quantum Santeria has some great short stories in it.
Yet another vote for the new Jim Hines. I’m also intrigued by Ban This Book, if only for the title and from a librarianesque standpoint.
Quantum Santeria, just for the title, and The Templars, because history.
The Hines I’ve got on my “to buy” list, but it won’t be available to me until 11/7. Of the others, the only authors I’ve heard of are Foster and McGuire, but I’ve never read anything by the latter and not in decades by the former.
Love Jim Hines hope this next series is as good as his others
Oooh — Strange Music, the (surprisingly) next entry in Alan Dean Foster’s long running “Pip & Flinx” series. The first book started me off on the SF genre ride all those many, many years ago. Can’t wait to read this!
David — I didn’t spot the title or author; you eyes are better than mine. Yes, curious.
