  1. 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 fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, 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 don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    Gods, Monsters, and the Lucky Peach . . . in honor of the Peach Butt of Gaffney, SC!!!!

    I read Sam J Miller’s BLACKFISH CITY in manuscript form. It’s badass ecopunk with bio-engineered Orcas and a juggernaut plotting. Can’t wait to see it our in the world!

  3. I’ve been waiting for Kelly Robson’s Gods, Monsters, and the Lucky Peach! And Spencer Ellworth’s third book! Ooh, and Sam J. Miller’s Blackfish City looks lovely, too.

  4. I’m quite enjoying Gnomon. It’s literary and meandering, balanced by a touch of grittiness and absurdity. I recommend it, especially if you like books that stretch your vocabulary.

  5. rktrixy – Alameda, CA – Architect, Newly-wed, Middle-aged Crafty woman. Love Science Fiction, Love quilting, Love fabric, love love love surface pattern. Very very fond of food.

    Gnomon sounds like a fascinating read!

  6. YES! Rachel Hartman’s TESS OF THE ROAD! Seraphina was SO good. (And I really need to get around to reading SHADOW SCALE.) If you can track down a copy, her graphic novel AMY UNBOUNDED set in the same world is really fun.

  7. Between just having read Angelmaker and having read Warren Ellis’s comments on the new book, I’m doing to read Gnomon.

  8. I am always looking for an author to to follow. Having read all of your wonderful books I need new input until your next comes out!

  9. Though Hell Should Bar The Way – not sure if that’s the next Lt. Leary Commanding book or the new spinoff from that series. Either way, we wantss it Preciousssssssssss….

  10. I’m a fan of Nick Harkaway. “Angelmaker” struck me most, but I’ve read the three books of his I know of. And I will not soon forget the martial arts move “walk like Elvis”.

  11. I just figured out who Ruth Downie is, and I’ll definitely be on the lookout for her latest. And figured out that I missed a Medicus book in 2016. Nice historical who-dun-its set in Roman Britain. And curious about Myke Cole’s latest also.
