A new year, a new stack of books and ARCs that have come to the Scalzi Compound. Which of these works would you like to be one of your first reads of 2018? Tell us in the comments!
Wow! That is a seriously awesome haul!
Neogenesis was my first read of the year.
Is a reprint ??
I got so excited for a second or ten.
Turncoat is Subterranean Press Signed Limited Edition. They are working their way through all of The Dresden Files series.
People’s History sounds like fun.
Aw man. I was all excited for a new Dresden book.
Ok, next one that catches my eye is Frankenstein in Baghdad.
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.).
I didn’t realize Cobra Traitor was out yet. Snagged.
I’ve pre-ordered Frankenstein in Baghdad. That looks really good.
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 :(
The Cackle of Cthulhu is the silliest title I’ve seen in a while
New Robert VS Reddick. Finally. Chathrand Voyage series was amazing. Probably deserving a reread soon.
Neogenesis was also my first read of 2018
Frankenstein in Baghdad would have been perfect for my blog project!!
‘Cackle of Cthulhu’ is already on my Amazon UK list.
Flotsam. Just the title alone makes me want to read it!
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.
Definitely Flint. maybe Zahn. Got excited over Butcher until I found out it was a reprint.
Neogenesis looks interesting, but it looks like #21 in a series! More books than time …
Neogenesis (though i read the eArc as soon as it came out)
Hey, I see my book there!
Taunting the tauntable since 1998
