New Books and ARCs, 7/15/21

We’re at the mid-point of July, and what better time to show off a hefty collection of new books and ARCs that have some to the Scalzi Compound. What here is calling to you for the second half of the month? Share in the comments.

  1. M.A. Kropp – NH, USA – I am a writer who is also a wife, mommy, and grandmother. I live in MA in the USA. I write mostly fantasy and science fiction. I speak sarcasm fluently. I am Irish and a ginger- that is fair warning. Puppies and kittens are my friends. I like good food, good drink, good friends, and good books.

    Well, of course, the two Wendig books.

  2. As an avid (and likely addicted) reader I am always on the lookout for new books. I invest a pretty good portion of my time searching for my next book using sources like the NYT Bestseller list, the London Review of Books, the awards lists like the Man Booker long list and Pulitzer, but when it comes to Science Fiction, I wouldn’t hesitate to say I’ve purchased and read hundreds of books (and discovered new authors) pictured in these lovely stacks you provide us. Thank you Scalzi for the wonderful service you provide!

  3. Apropos of nothing, is there some sort of legal requirement that Eric Flint, David Drake and Larry Niven have new books coming out almost EVERY week?

  4. Most of what you see aren’t actually new works by them, but reprints that Baen is doing. Legacy of Herot to take one example was published first in 1987. I’m reasonably sure that it’s been reprinted at least twenty times as the ISFDB database has eighteen printings up to the late 2000s.

  5. Huh, I don’t remember hearing about “Dust & Grim” before, but Wendig’s stuff is always good.

  6. Just got the Caitlin Kiernan’s The Variegated Alphabet. It’s a great compilation of her short ‘alphabet’ pieces, with each letter of the alphabet represented by a word that is used as the basis for a micro-story. As an incredible bonus, there’s art from Jon Kenn Mortensen that accompanies each alphabet.

  7. I am intrigued by the Physicians of Vilnog. Also, the fonts on the spine are awesome.

    The Return of the Sorceress also caught my eye.

  8. I enjoyed Legacy Of Heorot quite a bit when it first came out. The first sequel didn’t do much for me, and I think there’s at least one more sequel now.

  9. Jim Millen – Windsurfing, reading, biking, tech, PR, social, marketing, politics, sports. Big geek at heart, interested in most interesting stuff. :-)

    @Todd Meyer – hah hah I was thinking exactly the same! Baen seem on a mission to outdo other publishers in terms of output…

    What’s up with Trapped by Kevin Hearne – that came out 9 years ago. Republished?

  10. I bought the Physicians of Vilnoc but have not yet read it. The Penric/Desdamona stories are lots of fun. Highly recommend the series if you have not checked it out.

  11. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.
