  1. Yes that’s SubPress on the binding of those for certain. Super jealous they sent John a Murderbot. The works by Powell and Byrne caught my eye. I was aware of Byrne’s new book but not Powell. Onto the to-read list they both go!

  2. Stars and Bones reminds me of Paul Simon’s excellent title track from the album Hearts and Bones (1983), which is more obscure than it should be.

  3. Holy cow, Engine Summer. I’m pretty sure I still have my paperback copy from the 90s. I love so many things about it: the layered story structure, the world building, the personal voice of the storyteller. I thought maybe it was out of print (I think it was for a while). My favorite John Crowley book.

  4. Ooh, The Actual Star! Love that one!

  5. I saw Engine Summer and went: “Oooooh!”
    Stunning in scope and execution. A tremendous book that still influences me to this day.
    “Angel, why are you crying?”
