  1. I didn’t know Hugh Howey had something else out- I must track that down! And I had read Patricia Cornwell years ago, and always liked her books. Actually, these all look pretty interesting…

  2. Shaharee – As an urban nomad, cryptomathecian and writer I like to mix up adventure, literature, science and history. I live somewhere between Europe, Central America, and Asia as a digital nomad.

    Assassin’s Apprentice has built a solid reputation since its first publication in 1995. When you start this one, you’re in for a long haul;

    3) Assassin’s Quest

    Followed by the Liveship Traders Trilogy

    2) Mad Ship
    3) Ship of Destiny

    Followed by The Tawny Man Trilogy

    2) Golden Fool
    3) Fool’s Fate

    Followed by The Rain Wilds Chronicles
    1) Dragon Keeper
    2) Dragon Haven
    3) City of Dragons
    4) Blood of Dragons

    And finally, The Fitz and the Fool Trilogy
    1) Fool’s Assassin
    2) Fool’s Quest

  3. HOW TO by Randall Munroe is sitting atop my TBR stack. It looks great.

    @cryptomathecian Thank you for the Robin Hobb roadmap! That’s very handy.

    I submitted a story to Grimm, Grit and Gasoline!* World Weaver Press puts out some fun anthologies, so I’ll pick it up, if it isn’t already in Mount Tsundoku somewhere.

    * it wasn’t accepted

  5. Shooting Through escape rooms – Australia – Felicity Banks is the creator of Shooting Through: the escape room that comes to you. She also writes novels (The Antipodean Queen Australian Steampunk Trilogy, and the Rahana trilogy of kids, starting with "The Monster Apprentice"), interactive fiction, and the "Murder in the Mail" and "Magic in the Mail" art-filled immersive tales.

    I just discovered that a certain John Scalzi will be dropping by my “home” conference—Conflux Speculative Fiction Conference, Canberra, Australia.

    Well, there goes the neighbourhood.

  6. Hugh Howey self-pubbed the SF novel “HALF WAY HOME” in 2010, but recently sold the print and, unusually for him, the ebook rights to HMH.

  7. I bought Munroe‘s book as soon as it came out, it’s great so far. „Chilling effect“ looks interesting too, will need to check it out

  8. Randal has a great chapter featuring Chris Hatfield; worth every word.

    (Better shut this thread down before it becomes a love-fest, and he isn’t even going to Australia!)

  9. Just curious John, since Lock In and Head On are you getting a more diverse pile of books to review? Seems like more ‘crime’ in the stacks lately.

  10. Dana:

    I don’t think it’s intentionally more diverse. Perhaps word has gotten around more. The Lock In series of books have not much to do with it, I suspect.

  11. Already bought and received on release day, “How To,” and I highly recommend it. Assassin’s Apprentice is also great. I don’t know about the rest, but heck read them all.
