  1. Frankenstein in Baghdad! So many possibilities – is this an Arab version of a Gollum? How do you impart political and religious knowledge to a newly created creature? And how does the creature feel about Djinni? It’s been put on my amazon wish list.

    Turn Coat was a good read. Not so anxious to read another edition (I assume the story hasn’t changed, just the package.).

  2. You don’t *happen* to be the person who got #214 of Turn Coat (he says knowing that’s literally a 1/500 chance…) I’ve got almost all the others (up through White Knight) with that number, but someone else has the most recent two. :) No way of finding that person either :(

  3. New Robert VS Reddick. Finally. Chathrand Voyage series was amazing. Probably deserving a reread soon.

  4. The wife (D C McLaughlin) says: A people’s history of the vampire uprising.
    She has her own vampire fic published, but loves to see others take on the genre.

    ME- 1636: Mission to the Mughals.
    I studied the Raj and rise of independence movements in college. The fall of the Mughal Empire was the reason the Brits inherited the Indian subcontinent. Love to see what Ringo and his cowriter did with one of the most advanced, yet least known world class empires ever to exist.

  5. Definitely Flint. maybe Zahn. Got excited over Butcher until I found out it was a reprint.

  6. Neogenesis looks interesting, but it looks like #21 in a series! More books than time …
