New Books and ARCs, 4/3/20

And here we are: Another intriguing stack of new books and ARCs that have come to the Scalzi Compound. What is calling to you this week? Tell us all in the comments.
MMMM Shorefall. I really loved RJB’s Cites series and Foundryside. Looking forward to picking it up…..er having it Amazon-ed to me….
What’s the book on the bottom? I can’t see the title.
The Burglar in Short Order in sitting on top of my TBR pile. A new Bernie Grimes Rhodenbarr book is always cause for celebration!
The Empire of Gold!
Shorefall and Empire of Gold for sure!
And a reminder for your readers – PLEASE order from indie bookstores when you can? http://www.indiebound.org is great, and will help you find one that has what you’re looking for! I’ve been laid off from Powell’s, and there are a lot of people out there like me – we’d LOVE to have our jobs back someday, and that can only happen if people support the stores. <3
So jealous you have a copy of The Empire of Gold. I finished the previous book last month, and I’m anxiously waiting for this one to come out this summer.
I’m a sucker for surprises, so I’m drawn to the book on the bottom with tantalizing graphics and no discernable title or author!
The book on the bottom is the Subterranean Press limited edition of Tiamat’s Wrath, by James S A Corey. All of SubPress’ editions of The Expanse are published without spine or dust jacket copy.
Lawrence Block, an American treasure!
Empire of gold!! Ahhhh! I can’t wait!
Mexican Gothic sounds fascinating. I’m imagining a lot of Dia de Los Muertos and marigolds.
Mexican Gothic, The Burglar in Short Order, and Forced Perspectives for me!
Oh, and the Subterranean Press Tiamat’s Wrath, of course.
Subterranean Press has my number, and I like it.
Beowulfs Children (sequel to Legacy of Heorot). Awesome. Amazing world building and biology. Love all of the Niven Pournelle team up books.
And Tiamat’s Wrath is just a must read. That whole series. Need more.
Oh please, THE EMPIRE OF GOLD! This is an incredible series! Also, the narrator is fantastic, so actually, you can keep the book (I’m so generous). ;-)
Reason #57 to become a noted published author? Getting Shorefall early. Foundryside was amazing. (I also eagerly away something new by that Scalzi guy. Counting down the days)
The book on the top. Carpe Diem by Lee & Miller is fantastic and part of an absolutely outstanding space opera series that’s been going on for 25 years.
The Mexican Gothic book has me intrigued, as does the Lawrence Block book. Now that it’s explained what the bottom book in the stack is, that’s a reminder to me to get back to watching “The Expanse.”
I have tried several times to get into the Lee & Miller universe, but I always poop out about 25% into all of them I’ve tried to read so far. So I quit — a waste of shelf space on books I can’t seem to finish. But many of the others appeal a lot.
I hate it that I can’t just order a download and start reading the books not yet released. I guess going into back posts and looking at those groups of books would work…
Very excited for Shorefall… loved Foundryside!
