  1. Is there currently available anywhere a collection of “blurbs” you’ve written for books over the years? An online collection of such would make interesting reading.

  2. 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.

    “The Day after Gettysburg” sounds interesting, and it would be fun to compare it with “Guns of the South”.

    There were lots of titles reliant upon the word “of” in this pile. Is this a trend?

    The Poul Anderson book – is that an omnibus or all the little stories and thoughts that complete that “world”? I had not heard of the series, in any case…I’m intrigued.

  3. 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 part machine 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 more than a few miles at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    Hannah Greene & her unfeasibly mundane existence.

    Sounds like a story about me but exciting.

  4. I’m reading HANNAH GREEN AND… right now.

    I’m not sure I’m hooked by the main character situation, yet, but the writing is wonderful.

  5. I’m with dagoldner – loved City of Brass and am looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Not in your stack, but Walter Jon Williams fourth Dread Empire’s Fall book is coming out Tuesday. The title is “The Accidental War”. I haven’t pre-ordered yet because of the way Kobo deals with ebook pre-orders, but I will this weekend.

  6. The spine of the Anderson book says it’s Volume 3, so I guess it’s whatever material about that universe did not go into 1 or 2.

  7. City of Brass! I’m looking forward to reading it.

    @Susan B Thanks for the tip on Walter Jon Williams’ “The Accidental War” (Sep 4)
    . Instant buy for me!
