  1. WHOA!!!! A new (sorta) Michael Crichton? Can’t wait! I hope it’s better than his last couple of novels, which were 80% rant and 20% story. But if he wrote a sequel to Andromeda Strain, I’m definitely pre-ordering it!

  2. Yeah, nice to see Crichton’s still writing from the Afterlife.
    New Jeff Lemire! (I think — I don’t remember hearing about it.)

  3. Oooooh, the galley of Across the Universe and the third book in Theodora Goss’s Famous Monsters of Filmland in Their Natural State series (or whatever she’s actually calling it).

    Sadly, these being wasted on a man who has a novel to write. Fortunately, he can enjoy them when he finishes.

  4. I always think the “Best American” series are fun, so I’d go with “The Best American Science Fiction and Fanstasy 2019”. I recall stumbling into that series via our public library years ago and going through all the science (not SF/F) ones they had.

  5. The Twisted Ones is something I’m buying in September 24th as soon as it’s out. I’ve been reading her fantasy novellas in anticipation. Anything by Lemire is also great.

  6. Nothing catches my eye, but you’re filling my reading list faster than I can handle anyways, so I’m not too sad about that

    He didn’t.

    Daniel Wilson did, with the approval of Crichton’s estate. But it’s no more a Crichton novel than the Spenser novels that have been coming out since Robert B. Parker’s death are Parker novels.

    Doesn’t mean it can’t be good, of course, but they’re putting his name on it as branding, not because he did any writing on it.
