New Books and ARCs, 10/26/17

Lots of very fine books and ARCs came to the Scalzi Compound when I was in California, and here’s the first stack of them. What here looks good to you? Tell us all in the comments!

  1. I have yet to finish Zieja’s “Mechanical Failure” (the subtitle “Please restart your warship” was all I needed to invest in it), but I enjoyed what I did read and I’m glad he’s got a followup on the way soon.

  2. Artemis!
    I’d also like to know more about the What We Think About… book and the Girl Who Saved Christmas book.

  3. Artemis is pretty great…maybe not quite up there with The Martian but I liked it, lots of hard SF problem solving. I am looking forward to Soonish.

  4. Artemis! Valiant Dust sounds interesting. I recommend “Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen”: any book that is focused on Cordelia Naismith Vorkosigan is well worth the time.

  5. Matt Haig’s Boy Called Christmas and Girl Who Saved Christmas are wonderful, delightful, magical books to read to a 7 year-old . . . or to yourself if you don’t have a 7 year-old handy.

  6. Fingerprints On the Sky, which is the Harlan Ellison bibliography, the Bujold, the Weir, those three interest me most.

  7. Wow… Monster Hunter Files, Artemis, Castaway Odyssey & Fingerprints in the Sky all for sure!

  8. Artemis is on pre-order.
    Castaway Odyssey I’m half way through – standard fare. Readable and interesting.
    Infernal Battalion is on my list for when the paperback comes out.
    Rift Uprising – not the book in the stack but I’ll start with book one and see if I should go for Rift Frequency as well.
    This must be a reprint of ‘Gentleman Jole …’ as I read it a year or two ago. Bujold has drifted in the Vorkosigan world from space opera to something else.

  9. VALIENT DUST intrigues me; I already had a browser tab open for it. And of course, I’m interested in ARTEMIS!

  10. Artemis for me too; I’ve already got it on reserve at my local library. Looks like you got a box from Baen this week. I guess the Bujold book must be coming out in paperback since I read it last November. Django Wexler is an author that I fully intend to get around to reading someday, but so many books and only 24 hours in a day. Sigh.

  11. I’ve already put in a hold request on “Artemis” at the Arl. Co. (Va.) library; I’m fifty-something on said list.

  12. Already read the Bujold but recommend it anyway, Flint & Spoor, Weir, the Weinersmiths, Correia & Schmidt

  13. One more vote for Artemis! Going to order the audio book as soon as my next Audible credit hits. Also Soonish, which I already have but haven’t read yet.
