This looks like a very fine time to show off this week’s stack of new books and ARCs that have come to the Scalzi Compound! What here is getting your blood pumping? Tell us all in the comments, please!
The blurb on amazon.com for “The Sky Done Ripped” has convinced me I need to get that book, but I now see this is the third in a series and I have some catching up to do. Thanks ever so much for sharing.
I really like the Magic 2.0 books by Scott Meyer. Great world building and a warm, affectionate send-up of nerds and nerd-culture.
Oh, the next Gunnie Rose story from Charlaine Harris! I can’t wait. I’ve been a big fan of Joe Lansdale since I watched, then read “Bubba Ho Tep”, so that looks good, too! Nice Pile!
Ooh, I didn’t know Agatha Heterodyne (I think that’s the character name) had a series of novels! I used to read the Girl Genius graphic novels. Fun!
Very excited by the Foglio’s new Agatha Heterodyne book. I’ve been a Girl Genius fan for years and these are a great addition to the series. If you don’t know Girl Genius, go check out the web comic and read from the beginning, you won’t be sorry.
The new Gunnie Rose book. Charlaine Harris.
ohhhh they all look so scrumptuous!
I’ve heard good things about the horror compilation, although it looks a little scholarly and I would have a hard time convincing our patrons to borrow it. Short story collections often end up in the Nonfiction area, under Literature, where they languish.
I love the Magic 2.0 series by Scott Meyer. Excited to see that!
Oh! I missed the new Foglio Girl Genius! Gimme!
