Just in time for the solstice, a baker’s dozen of new books and ARCs that have come to the Scalzi Compound. Which of these would you enjoy reading on a short summer night? Tell us all in the comments!
I’ve been waiting for Spinning Silver for a while now.
Staff at From My Shelf Books & Gifts in Wellsboro, PA, really enjoy Jennifer Estep’s books. Glad to see she’s got a new one coming out this fall!
The first Clines Paradox book was pretty fun, good to see another one is coming out.
I have been making grabby hands for Spinning Silver since she first announced it – I adored Uprooted, and I love that she is mining folklore from the other side of her family tree. And I’m intrigued by Mutiny at Vesta (Barbary Station is on my summer to-read list).
I already have Red Waters Rising on pre-order (can’t wait!), so I’m gonna say Michael J. Martinez’ MJ-12 Endgame. I’m surely loving that series.
Spinning Silver — just like so many others. Uprooted was absolutely a pleasure. After I read it, I passed it on to my husband, who read it, and then we chatted about whom we would cast in the movie version, if there were one. He suggested Daniel Radcliffe for The Dragon, but I thought he’d be too young and suggested Matthew MacFadyen.
I love Uprooted, I’m excited for Spinning Silver.
Definitely Spinning Silver. The comments about Killing the Queen piqued my interest, and I have recommended that my local library purchase the ebook.
You get Red Water Rising and Spinning Silver before me. You bastard!!!
I hadn’t heard of The Life and Adventures of Joaquin Murieta before, but an 1850s dime novel about the Californian Gold Rush, written by someone considered to be the first Native American novelist? That’s going on my to-read slagheap. (As well as Spinning Silver, of course.)
I wish the Peter Clines was a new entry because I loved Paradox Bound (and he has nothing new yet announced for the year), but I’ll happily settle for the paperback and a chance to re-read the great adventure.
Yay, Martinez’s MJ-12: ENDGAME! Also, Naomi Novik’s SPINNING SILVER! I’m unfamiliar with a lot of the others – for now. ;-)
MJ-12 Endgame. The first two books in the series were an absolute blast, and I’m anxious to see where Michael Martinez goes with the conclusion to the trilogy.
Red Waters Rising. I’m hooked on Gilman’s “Devil’s West” books.
Santa Cruz Noir sounds good. Murder by deep-fried artichoke?
Santa Cruz Noir had me with the news that Susie Bright was editing it. Susie Sexpert’s still doing book stuff, yayyy!
The Trail and Execution Of The Traitor George Washington has me wondering from the title alone what sort of alternate history Rosenberg has created.
This Dave Duncan series isfantastic. As a beta-reader I really enjoyed all three books. Each are complete stories. Highly recommended.
Ooh, I missed the Laura Ann Gilman book! Love the Devil’s West series.
Taunting the tauntable since 1998
