  1. Senlin Ascends! Arm of the Sphinx! Those books are FANTASTIC adventure stories. So happy to see them in the pile.

  2. Oh yeah, there’s TWO here that I’m interested in.

    The first is Red Dust. Yoss is a terrific dude and I’ve loved everything I’ve read by him. His band’s pretty awesome too.

    Oh, and I’ve also heard some good things about the Kluwe book. Think I might check that one out as well.

  3. Pre-ordered Kloos’ book. The Picard book sounds interesting. I’ve enjoyed the Nancy Kress books I’ve read – although I’ve only read a couple.

  4. Senlin Ascends! Arm of the Sphinx! I agree with Chris, these are some of the best books I’ve read in quite some time. Absolutely love that series.

  5. Oh man, I am VERY jealous of those limited edition Books of Babel. They are gorgeous. John, if you haven’t read them, they are worth adding to your permanent library!

  6. Chiming in to add my enthusiasm for the Books of Babel titles! I bought all three in paperback when my library conference had an author program that included Bancroft.

  7. bmcraec – Bowen Island, BC V0N 1G0, Canada – Technology. Communications. Design. Type semi-geek. Passionate about sharing knowledge. Publishing veteran. Tech is best viewed from a societal change & architecture perspective.

    Martin wrote a new book? Must be awesome to not be badgered by HBO to carry on the saga for their production schedule!

    A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms? George wrote something for the Song of Ice and Fire series without it being interpreted by HBO’s production team? Oh, awesome.

    It’s a collection of three previously-published novellas.

  10. Bujold!
    OK, after investigation, I’ve read them all already, but still, always a good day when you find a Bujold book.

  11. Definitely Nancy Kress – hadn’t realized she had a new one coming out soon. And from what I’m reading here, I need to move Senlin Ascends up to the front of my to-be-read queue. I bought it on a whim over a year ago (it was probably on sale) but it’s gotten lost in the shuffle. I’ll buy the Bujold since I read all of these in Hugo voter packs and I’d like for Lois to make some money off of me.

  12. Bujold’s Penric stories are great!

    And now I know T Frohock has a new Los Nefilim book coming out. Highly recommended, but the one in the ARC is no 5 and this is definitely a series where it’s best to start at the beginning.

  13. I want to put in another good word for Senlin Ascends and The Arm of the Sphinx. The Books of Babel are one of the most memorable fantasy series I’ve ever read. And the third book, The Hod King, is even better.

  14. Hank Roberts – California – I'm Nobody! Who are you? Are you --Nobody --Too? Then there's a pair of us? Don't tell! they'd advertise --you know! How dreary --to be --Somebody! How public --like a Frog -- To tell one's name --the livelong June -- To an admiring B[l]og!
