New Books and ARCs, 9/27/19

As we head into the final weekend of September, here’s a stack of new books and ARCs for you to consider. What here would you like to close out the month with? As always, share in the comments.

  1. I’ll be buying that Hodgman soon, mainly because I like Hodgman, but also because it’ll balance out these great (but a little depressing) Culture books I’ve been binging recently.

  2. I’m looking forward to A Lush…Hell, and I’ve already got my pre-order for the Joe Hill. I loved his last two collection of novellas, and I’m looking forward to this new one.

  3. Lol, I said the exact thing Markus wrote above! New Joe Hill everytime, John Hodgman should be great, Kaitlin Kiernan also.

  4. “The Library of the Unwritten” is one that I’ve already tagged – looking forward to it coming out.

    And I pre-ordered “Houses Under the Sea” so mine came a couple of weeks ago. I’m savoring each story, even though I’ve read most or all of them before. She’s a master of the form.

    Good stuff!

  5. Can’t wait to read the conclusion of the Tiger’s Daughter. I’ve got The Warrior Moon on my night stand. Just finished Gideon the Ninth and I’ve got to say that Tor has had some really amazing stuff come out this fall already. There are also a half a dozen other books in that pile that I’d love to get my hands on.

  6. And about Joe Hill, this was in the news here lately:

    A local book store arranged a joint buy-the-books-get-them-signed appearance with Joe Hill and Joe’s father (YKWHI). They were wise enough to rent a theater and have admission by ticket only. They did not anticipate the demand, though, especially when they decided to advertise it on Ticketmaster.

    One guess as to what happened to their web site when the tickets went live.

    One more guess as to what happened when the web site came back up.

    Now they have at least 400 oversold tickets, and need to figure out what to do without pissing off people even more. The best solution will probably be to sit Joe and Steve down in front of a stack of books and mail those off to the unlucky who need refunds. Hope they don’t get carpal.
