  1. I really liked the Feynman graphic novel that Ottaviani wrote, so I’m interested in the Einstein one…

  2. I somehow missed that Cargill despite loving Sea of Rust, so that went right on the for-payday list.

  3. I really enjoyed Project Hail Mary. It went in a little bit of a different direction that I found refreshing and fun.

  4. I enjoyed Hail Mary; this is a Subterranean Press release. Cargill’s Day Zero is in my owned-unread queue, so it’s good to be reminded that I have that ebook available The one in John’s stack is also a Subterranean Press reissue, but I don’t have room for hardback books any more. Neon Yang is also on my to-read list,

    So many books, never enough time. Sigh

  5. Project Hail Mary surprised me not just with the theme and a few twists along the way, but the depth of world-building that few attempt (metallurgy, etc.).

  6. Project Hail Mary was awesome but the Audible narrator Ray Porter was also excellent. Wish it would have won Hugo.

  7. > Why are there books here that were first published in May 2021? Genuinely confused…

    You don’t mention which books you mean, but if you’re referring to DAY ZERO, it’s because this isn’t the Harper Voyager edition, which came out in May of 2021, it’s the Subterranean Press edition, which came out earlier this month.


  8. The version of Weir’s book shown here clearly says “BALLANTINE BOOKS”, so either it’s a special re-release from the original publisher or it’s been stuck in a timewarp.

  9. There’s a PROJECT HAIL MARY paperback coming out from Ballantine next week.


  10. It’s been mentioned before, but publishers often send out review copies when a new edition (including paperback or special editions) is scheduled, when a sequel is about to be released, when any kind of significant news about the title happens to more or less coincide with a new printing, all kinds of reasons. So yes, Project Hail Mary is from early last year (and is excellent, something of a return to Weir’s form in The Martian) and Gardens of the Moon is from another century (barely, but hey, 1999 totally counts).
