New Books and ARCs, 11/15/19

Hey, you look like you could use a nice big stack of new books and ARCs to peruse. So here one is! What here is drawing your eye? Tell us all in the comments.
Crush the King! I loved the first two in the series, I can’t wait for this one to come out.
Another vote for Crush the King! I’m currently reading book 2 and can tell I will shortly be desperate for book 3.
The Crowley, of course.
Really looking forward to the new Charles Soule book – Oracle Year was a terrific read!
Hmm. The Puzzler’s War intrigues me. Hmm, it seems to be the sequel to something called The Lost Puzzler, set in a dystopian post-apocalyptic future. Perhaps not my cup of tea
You’re getting D&D stuff now? COME ON, MAN. :)
@JRBooth – nothing wrong with some D&D books! I am in the middle of writing the adventures for my own home-brewed D&D campaign. Always interested in what ideas others have….
Storytelling is storytelling!
The one I’d love to get my hands of is The Book Of Magic…
You’re getting D&D books, too?
The Crowley definitely pings my radar. And the Dozois collection makes me wonder what fictional wonders are inside.
I don’t recognise any of the authors, again.
But that’s why I like this weekly treat.
I get recommendations here and often go off and try out a new (to me) author. So I’ll try Jennifer Estep (Crush the King).
The Charles Soule book, I didn’t even know it was coming.
I can’t wait to see John Ford’s books in your stack.
I’m curious about Dungeons and Tombs, but I just got the last volume of Legend of the Galactic Heroes, so that takes priority for me.
LOOKING GLASS DEAR GODS LOOKING GLASS!!!
I’m jealous of all the Subterranean Press books that I see in these postings.
Off topic, John, but related to books. Did you know that Old Man’s War is being used as course material for an “Introduction to Fiction” class here in Oregon? High praise, and well worth it.
I’ve enjoyed the few Mel Odom books I’ve read, especially the one that explains that Moby Dick was unusually surly because he was possessed by an asshole alien. This one looks like standard military SF, which is right up my alley.
Looking at Amazon, he’s written a lot more than I realized. I knew he did a lot of media tie-ins, but wow. Buffy, Angel, Shadowrun, D&D, even Leisure Suit Larry. I might have to track that one down.
A collection of essays and reviews by John Crowley? Yes, please!
ANYONE by Charles Soule sounds interesting – right up my alley.
Love to see these stacks of books. Used to have a friend who worked in music journalism, he got a stack of vinyl albums every month 3 feet high, and would put most of them out on the curb for anyone to pick through, because he already had like two sets of shelves 16 feet long full of music. We heard some great music just released at his house! King Crimson, Pink Floyd, when they were just breaking out. Yes, I’m old.
Just wish they were all already available for purchase as opposed to preview editions not up for another couple of months.
Lee: I totally agree – it was more of a “Dang, Scalzi is getting EVEN MORE COOL STUFF.” :)
