Saturday Miscellany — 9/6/14

Odds ‘n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You’ve probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

    (My TBR pile got a massive injection this week thanks to) This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:

  • Hidden by Benedict Jacka — It’s been far too long since I spent time with Alex Verus.
  • The Winter Long by Seanan McGuire — but it’s been longer since I’ve read a Toby Daye novel. Not sure how I decide which to read first.
  • Shifting Shadows by Patricia Briggs — a collection of Mercy Thompson short stories? Yes, please.
  • Maplecroft by Cherie Priest — Cthulu stuff has never really spoken to me, but . . . something about this take makes me think I could like it. Here’s her Big Idea piece on the book.
  • Personal by Lee Child — Jack Reacher goes to Europe. Should be relaxing, no?
  • The Drop by Dennis Lehane — a return to the world of Mystic River? Sounds great — and probably, pretty messy.
  • What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe — title kinda says it all. From the brain behind the xkcd webcomic.
