New Books and ARCs, 10/10/19

Actually, these arrived before I left for Australia, so I’m catching up by posting them now. Nevertheless: A good stack! What here calls to you? Tell us in the comments.

  1. 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.

    How do you decide which ones you’re going to review?

  2. 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.

    The True Bastards – I just want to know who they are.

  3. I cannot imagine who the presumed target audience is for a reissue of Gene Roddenberry’s TMP novelization, despite the (presumed) tie-in to the movie’s 40th anniversary. The most noteworthy thing I recall about the original mass-market edition was the absurd overuse of italics, which I suppose have all been retained.

  4. Saw Windhaven, thought of GRRM’s OTHER 30 year old book, Tuf Voyaging. Man i liked that one. (remembered the character name, but needed to Google to remember Voyaging.)

  5. I’ve read David Mack’s ST:TNG Collateral Damage. Mack does his usual excellent job of storytelling, and he brings back a long-unseen character from TNG. Lots of fun.

  6. The Infinite Noise by Lauren Shippen. I’m technically too old for this but I do read a lot & enjoy YA odds and ends. I’ve been re-reading Heinlein, and as soon as I finish “Stranger” again – well, I think I need to read ANYTHING else at this point. I’d love to see what the TOR teen imprint is like.

  7. I’ll have to have a closer look at “The Return”, “Catfishing on Catnet”, and “Raven’s Space”. Guess catching up with David Walton’s work will be delayed by a bit

  8. Ah, Larry Correia; my wife had just read the first Monster Hunter book when the whole puppies thing happened. Further books have not (and will not) be purchased. There is more material out there than I have time to read already, and I have little or no time to waste on an author so deeply entrenched in that mess.

  9. _Catfishing on Catnet_ is wonderful! The main character is a lovely person to spend time with. Her mother is neither evil nor absent, which is refreshing in a YA novel. Instead, her mother is a complicated person making difficult choices in a complicated world, and not always making the best choices. Which is true for the protagonist, as well. It’s just a lovely, lovely book full of heart and agency, real trouble, real evil, and love.

  10. Oooh, New Eric Flint! I have only recently discovered him! _Catfishing on Catnet_ sounds intriguing. Star Trek. Shoot….most of these look good, best ARC stack in a while, to me!

  11. If you listened to Lauren Shippen’s podcast, The Bright Sessions, the book Infinite Noise has characters from that. In addition, the audiobook is done by the people who voiced the parts on the podcast, so it feels like returning to that world. It’s so good.
