Posted on December 27, 2018 Posted by John Scalzi 29 Comments
It’s the final stack of new books and ARCs for 2018, so it’s no surprise it’s a big one. What here would you be happy to help you bring in the new year? Tell us all in the comments.
(And if you need a larger version of the picture, here you go.)
Honestly, any new book. I already read Kratman over Thanksgiving.
Magic for Liars looks promising
Iron Angels is EXCELLENT!
You have CHILDREN OF RUIN already? The rest of us mortals have to wait til May, 2019 for it. Jealous.
As a pretty long-term Pratchett fan, I shall have to have a look at “No country for old gnomes”.
Kingdom of Needle and Bone
I was recently introduced to the Long Earth series by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter. So I’m reading that
I’m looking forward to another entry in the Alliance Union worlds of C J Cherryh and Jane Francher
Waiting mostly patiently for my own copy of Kingdom of Needle and Bone, but a new Kevin Hearne is not to be sneezed at!
I hoping hard for Cherryh & Fanchers Alliance Rising to be great and successful – so we can have much more Allince Union. It’s preordered.
I’ve already made a mental note to get Sarah Gailey’s new book aaaaannnd I’ve randomly picked Finder as another choice….
C J Cherryh Is someone to revisit.
‘No Country for Old Gnomes’!? They have me at that title!
I ordered a copy of No Country for Old Gnomes for the title alone! Nice double-stack there, Scalzi. Extra books but I didn’t have to open my iPad’s magifying glass feature to read the spines. Happy New Year!
Flint, Hearne, Paolini, Tchaikovsky and especially Mira Grant are all must haves but I wouldn’t touch anything by Kratman with a ten foot pole.
Let’s play nice, please, and focus on the titles we’d like, less on the things we wouldn’t.
SO want the new Gailey.
Paolini. Very interested to find out what’s going on in Eragon’s world.
Another vote for Alliance Rising. I’m also interested to see what gets chosen for the occasional reissue; I wonder what the algorithm for that looks like?
I’d love “The Magnificent Wilf” by Gordon R. Dickson. I’ve been a fan of his for many a year!
I love the title of Gailey’s new book
The Flickr link says “403 You need to be signed in to see this”.
Good to see some of the early lightweight Dickson being re-re-released, “The Magnificent Wilf” is a fun read!
Ohhh…Children of Ruin…I has a jealous.
My copy of the new Mira Grant just arrived in the mail today
Children of Ruin!!!
I can tell you for a fact that Suzanne Palmer’s–pardon me, 2018 Hugo Winner Suzanne Palmer’s–Finder is excellent. I know because I got to read and comment on a draft of the manuscript. It’s an intelligent space opera with an interesting main character and (this being Suzanne) some off-the-wall funny bits. Well suited to the citizens of Scalzi Nation, I should think.
Another vote for “Children of Ruin.”
I’m looking forward to Suzanne Palmer’s first novel length effort, and not just because we hung out in the same science fiction society in college…
