Best of David Brin and the Buckell for sure, maybe some of the others if I could see a blurb or cover copy. (The spine for “The Fort” looks cool but I haven’t heard of it and don’t recognize the author name.)

What percentage of ARCs and freebies do you think you actually read? Have you had to build a massive library structure on your property just to house publisher giveaways? Do you hand books out instead of Halloween candy? (Actually, that would be a really fun idea.) Just curious.

I was gonna say. Say what you will about Baen – and lord knows I have much less interest in their books than I used to, for multiple reasons – but they’ve always been really good at letting people know about their stuff.

Adrian Goldsworthy is a well-respected Roman historian who has a number of non-fiction books to his credit. He has also written the Vindolanda trilogy, set in Roman Britain around 100 AD. Both his non-fiction and fiction are very readable. The Fort appears to be the first novel of a new series set in Roman Dacia. (current day Romania). Very interested to buy the book.
