New Books and ARCs, 4/8/22

After a brief(ish) haitus whilst I was on the road, the New Books and ARCs feature is back, and with a very fine stack of reading if I do say so myself. What here is calling to you? Share in the comments!

  1. Wait, is Ben Bova the title, or is Sam Gunn Jr. the title?

    Who’s on first?

  2. For The Throne!!!!!!!!!!! Omgggggg!!!! I didn’t read it correctly at first(allergy eyes). The first book was so good. I can’t wait for this one. I’m giddy.

  3. New Ben Bova? Goes and checks, ah posthumously published. Also wow, Ben Bova wrote a lot more books than I have seen. The Dueling Machine was a childhood favourite.

  4. GTA, yeah, just for the name ;-)

    Lucius Shepard is a name I haven’t heard lately.

    And I’m troubled that ‘Live Nude Aliens’ isn’t a novel…

  5. Lucius Shepherd’s first (?) novel, “Green Eyes” was a stunner: it hinted at such a weird universe. Sadly, for me, he never quite reached that summit again.

  6. Does anyone know, since I always wonder…does he read all the ARCs that arrive every few weeks? Because they seem like a sizeable collection of books.

  7. Nerys, I don’t think he does. I can’t imagine he’d have time to do anything else if he did. I’d have to dig for it, but I think John posted at one point that he posts them on his blog, then gives them away to friends and family or donates them or something.

  8. Nerys:

    the dark, dark secret of Baron von Scalzi is he identifies the best of those ARCs and via eldritch quantum particles e-mails them to himself five years ago
