New Books and ARCs, 1/7/22
Posted on January 7, 2022 Posted by John Scalzi 19 Comments
A new year, and a new stack of books and ARCs that have arrived at the Scalzi Compound. Anything here intriguing you here in the first week of January? Share in the comments!
I thought it was Lodi, CA, but no. Still, a Penric and Desdemona story from Bujold? Looking forward to it.
Joe Lansdale? Yay!
Holy Cathulhu! A Moonbase Alpha tech manual?!?! I have to get my hands on one of those!
The Penric and Desdemona series by Lois McMaster Bujold (“Masquerade in Lodi”, here) is one of my favorite series. And Subterranean Press does such a nice job on their books — they remind me, in case I’d forgotten, why I much prefer physical to virtual books.
If you’re into the fiction of Lansdale, Tachyon has forthcoming Born for Trouble; The Further Adventures of Hap and Leonard. It’s out next month.
Just finished “Alternative Deathiness” on the Kindle (I read Jim Wright regularly and he’s in it). Slightly erratic and I detest the title, but still would recommend this as fairly light reading
A Space:1999 book???
Did they see that new Moonfall movie coming out and say, Hey! That’s our shtick!
Beej, there’s at least twenty Space: 1999 novels that have published so far. And that doesn’t include foreign language ones as there’s a lot that were published in Germany that were not translations of the English language ones.
An OPS manual for moonbase alpha! Perfect for winter browsing.
Moonbase Alpha tech manual: Don’t bang the atomic waste containers together…
Both Justice of Kings and Engines of Empire look good. Of course, I love chunky fantasy books. I also prefer physical rather than reading on ebook. Have turned off my ipad for a while to get through my dusty and chunky reads.
Subterranean Press editions of Bujold, Lansdale, Kiernan, and Reynolds, yes please! Plus bonus Kiernan, yum!
Alternate Deathiness is a pretty great title.
@Cat Eldridge Thanks for the tip on Born for Trouble from Tachyon. I’m always pleased to hear of more Hap and Leonard even though I haven’t finished the reading the ones I already own.
Belladonna Nights, new book of shorts by Alastair Reynolds, count me in!
The Moonbase Alpha Technical Operations Manual would be good to have next to my raggedy old copy of Starlog Press’s old Alpha Tech Notebook!
Belladonna Nights is also available in a digital version as well.
Love me some Alastair Reynolds…
Vile Affections by Caitlin R Kiernan – love her work and as soon as I get through the current pile, I’ll be leaping into this!
None of these books specifically interest me but I wanted to say that I use a screen reader on RSS and this title read as: “New Books and ARCs, first of July, 22”.
Ah, USers and their silly endians…
My copy of Masquerade in Lodi just arrived at the back door. The little card that came with it said it was packed by Emmy.
Do you get the little card as well?
