Look! New books and ARCs! I’d write more but a cat is lying on me and I only have use of one hand! What in this stack looks good to you? Tell us in the comments!

  1. Looking forward to The Grey Bastards. Best of 300 SFPBO novels means it must be good.

  2. The Elaine Castillo has an interesting cover- I’d pick that one up for a looksee at least.

  3. The Gray Bastards. I was thinking it might be a civil war book, but no…. I looked up the plot on Amazon. War Pigs?

  4. Aliette de Bodard’s novella _The Tea Master and the Detective_ in its lovely Subterranean Press incarnation. My copy just arrived and is atop my TBR stack.

  5. So glad Grey Bastards is finally being released!! I happened to get it when it was a SPFBO finalist and it’s amazing. Can’t wait for the sequel. Live in the saddle! Die on the hog!

  6. Skimming… ooh, is that Nicola Griffith? What is… I can’t read… damn… [goes to her website] Aha! It is a new novel, “So Lucky”. Yay! Had no idea; thought her next would be a follow up to “Hild”.

  7. I started in on my copy of A Call to Vengeance last night, and already I have been tickled by the use of a future society misremembering the meaning of some piece of contemporary pop culture (which is now in the past for said society). Everything can be profound if you don’t realize it’s a joke.

  8. ” I’d write more but a cat is lying on me and I only have use of one hand! ” <- Sounds familiar. As soon as my wife sits on the couch with her laptop, the cat drapes herself across her hands and the keyboard to nap. Personally, I think cats are frustrated writers, frustrated by lack of digital dexterity. I'd read a book written by a cat.

  9. After doing exactly the same thing as Tim Maddux above – fail completely to decipher title of book by Nicola Griffith, visit author’s website, get really excited about book – I hope a more legible version makes it into print.

    Wasted some time trying to find out what the heck SPFBO/SFPBO is. Self-published fantasy blog-off, for anyone who, like me, was floundering in the dark.
