  1. 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.

  2. I have The Brightest Fell on pre-order and have slowly been getting more and more excited as September approaches…

  3. Ooooh, the new October Day! Which I should be able to get from the library in about six months. :( Stupid DAW and their DRM.

  4. 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 🤬 I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. Reading transports me to places that are inaccessible to me right now. Whether those places address in space or in areas I'm unable to travel, I am grateful for books and authors who keep my mind occupied. 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 think I have Song of Edmon on my kindle as part of my prime reading.

  5. Another voice for the ‘Oooh, another Seanan/October Daye book!’ choir here.

    I shall have to check out Mr Hine’s series also. Huzzah!

  6. 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.

  7. JohnFromGR – Grand Rapids, Michigan – Chief Operations Officer of Caffeinated Press. Editor-in-Chief of The 3288 Review. Martial arts instructor. Web/mobile developer. I write sometimes, too.

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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!
