As we round the bend toward April, we have one more stack of new books and ARCs for March! What here is getting your attention as a possible Spring Read? Share in the comments!
The Hao Jingfang one is definitely a must for me. I loved Folding Beijing…and the translator of that (Ken Liu) also translated this.
Look at Scalzi, hoarding all the books during a crisis — LOL. At least it’s not TP.
PS. I don’t recognize any of these. Man, I am out of touch.
Lovecraft Country was my favorite book of whatever year that was (what day is it!), so I am all in for 88 Names. Thanks again for the heads up!
Kate Elliott’s Unconquerable Sun is one I’ve been looking forward to.
I loved 88 Names. Excellent fun.
Hi John, are the books still coming in regularly? Do you expect these deliveries to disrupted over the coming weeks?
I’m so excited! She’s brilliant!
Me too for Kate Elliott, but happened to the 2nd and 3rd books of the Black Wolves trilogy?
Matt Ruff! – and Hao Jingfang.
New Matt Ruff is always big news for me. I didn’t completely click with Lovecraft Country – for me it was full of marvellous parts which didn’t quite gel but he’s one of a kind.
@Msb I looked through the some of her newsletters and blog. She mentioned that she was working on book 2, calling it Dead Empire, in 2017. There’s even a picture of an in-progress cover. No mention in the 3 later issues that I have saved nor in the blog although I just quickly scanned the entries.
Can’t wait for Unconquerable Sun!
Thanks! I suppose one can plan books but writing them takes the time it takes.
Matt Ruff! I was blown away by Lovecraft Country. And Kate Elliott who I heard speak at Worldcon in Kansas City and have still not gotten around to reading. Sigh. So many books, so little time.
