Saturday Miscellany – 1/18/14

Ugh. 2014 has just not been working the way I expected. Not reading much, (obviously) writing less. What I’ve read has been great, and hopefully I’ve got things figured out on the writing end. Still, here are the latest odds ‘n ends about books and reading that caught my eye. You’ve probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

    This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:

  • The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches by Alan Bradley — the new Flavia de Luce adventure. I predict shenanigans, mischief, murder and restrained sass.
  • He Drank and Saw the Spider by Alex Bledsoe — How can you not love sword jockey Eddie LaCrosse? Elvis Cole in a fantasy world.
  • Switchblade by Michael Connelly — a new Harry Bosch short story. Short fiction ain’t my thing, but there are writers I make exceptions for.
  • The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Staveley — not really looking for a new epic fantasy series, but volume 1 of the Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne looks pretty appealing.
