New Books and ARCs, 3/2/18
Posted on March 2, 2018 Posted by John Scalzi 19 Comments
A new month and a new stack of books and ARCs that have come to the Scalzi Compound. What in this stack do you want to put into your own “to be read” pile? Tell us in the comments.
Ooooohhh! ***eyes light up*** There’s a new Benedict Jacka!
Also Bujold and Erikson. And the title of the one on top intrigues me.
Penric’s Fox, please
I read Penric’s Fox shortly after it came out on kindle. I recommend it, although not as a place to start with the Five Gods world. This really needs to be read after The Hallowed Hunt in my view, or at least the Penric stories that are earlier in internal chronology (that would be the first 2 in publication order).
I loved Penric’s Fox, and hope that there will be more of this series. However, anything by Bujold would be very welcome.
Ooh, new Tom Rachman. I didn’t know about that one.
I saw the new Theodora Goss on top, and my eyes went blind to the rest of the stack. Sorry, other writers, whoever you are.
A puzzling (non-SFF) choice for submission to the Scalzi pile, but I always look forward to anything A.M. Homes pens.
Squee! I had no idea the new Theodora Goss was coming out so soon! Instant pre-order.
I just picked up Bujold’s Penric’s Mission – and I see she has another out already? Oh, happy day!
Can’t go wrong with Bujold!
I don’t really read fiction much at all anymore, but A.M. Homes caught my eye
Back in high school I was in a band called Lost Crow Conspiracy. (Not strictly speaking the truth.)
I quite enjoyed The Gospel of Loki, so I’m looking forward to reading The Testament.
A new A.M. Homes?!
:0 Obsidio! I have heard that the cover will be shiny, but that tends to be hit or miss for me (the US edition of Strange The Dreamer was a no for example), do you like it?
Oooh! New benedict jacka!
Bujold without question and The Testament of Loki looks intriguing.
Holy crap, the new Theodora Goss novel looks large enough to kill a zombie with, but the title grabbed me.
Rebecca Roanhorse’s “Trail of Lightning”! She also wrote one of the best stories published in Apex Magazine last year, “Welcome To Your Authentic Indian Experience.” I’ve pre-ordered this book. Can’t wait.
Already read Penric’s Fox, of course… nice to see another by Benedict Jacka coming along. I’ve still got the Loki on my “to read” pile.
