Another February is almost in the books — but not before we have time for another stack of new books and ARCs! What here is calling to you? Share in the comments.
Elizabeth Hand! Looks like it has a gorgeous cover, too.
What’s the book following Katherine Cowley? No title or author.
Speculative Los Angeles! Is it a collection of short stories–I see “edited by…”
Is the book following the Katherine Cowley book this one? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08HLQL1B2?tag=hacboogrosit-20
Every time I see the New Books and ARCs post I find myself looking for a new book by Pat Cadigan, sigh. Synners and and Fools were amazing. One can dream…
Now I want a Speculative Ottawa-Gatineau…
Ever since you updated the site, I think you moved from one host to another, the pictures on your site don’t load. The rest of the internet is working for me, so I’m wondering if others that visit your site have been experiencing issues?
Keep up the great work!
Kim, I’d bet Cadigan will have a collection out soon. I hope it includes her story with Christopher Fowler, Freeing the Angels, which I really enjoyed back in the day. She has written some fine stories in the last 20 years. I’d say a collection is called for. Tachyon?
A thick Subterranean retrospective along the lines of that very fine looking Hand volume would be even awesomer.
Yes, the Hand collection looks great — I can’t think of any short stories of hers I’ve read but her novels are good. I’m also kind of curious about Rise of the Red Hand (different Hand I’m assuming) just from the title, series title, and spine.
My copy of the Elizabeth Hand arrived today, and I’m looking forward to getting into it.
That Multispecies Cities anthology sounds interesting. More details here: https://www.worldweaverpress.com/store/p176/Multispecies_Cities.html.
I’m waiting for my copy of the Elizabeth Hand! Something new from her is always worthwhile.
If you like Elizabeth Hand and read on Kindle, the collection is going for a really low price. (I’m not linking because I don’t want to run afoul of the rules- also, I’m in the US, and your mileage may vary. But right now, it’s under $6.)
@Dwight Williams, have you discovered Charles DeLint? His stories about Newtown, an Ottawa populated by supernatural beings both European and First People, are great!
The Multispecies City one looks intriguing.
Just out of curiosity what do you do with all of these books? I assume you read some of them, but then what? Do you have a massive warehouse where you store them all? Do you donate them to a local library? The library seems more like you than the warehouse but I never know.
I’m already familiar with Mr. de Lint’s work.
And there are other authors in the region as well these days: Derek Kunsken, Marie Bilodeau, Kate Heartfield, Amal el-Mohtar, Mark Shainblum…and I know there’s names I’m forgetting alongside these.
