Saturday Miscellany – 7/11/15

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:

    A good crop of New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon — but next week’s list is gonna be a killer (literally, if I was able to get my hands on everything I want next Tues.):

  • Splintered by Jamie Schultz — the really strong second volume of the Arcane Underground series. I got wordy about it here.
  • The Fraud by Brad Parks — the 6th Carter Ross mystery looks to be a great read — Parks has become one of those authors I just grab automatically — don’t care what the book is about, I’m reading it if he wrote it.
  • Time Salvager by Wesley Chu — I have little patience for time travel stories (with a couple of notable exceptions), but Chu’s setup is one that really appeals to me. Will be diving into this one ASAP. Check out his Big Idea from Whatever.
  • Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine — love the premise. Am eager to see if the book can live up to it.
  • Letters to Zell by Camille Griep — this alternative take on fairy tales looks promising.
  • The Six by Mark Alpert — there looks to be a hard-SF bent to this YA SF about terminally ill teens piloting combat robots.
  • Bum Rap by Paul Levine — I was a huge fan of Levine’s Solomon vs. Lord series, but was never inclined to check out the Jake Lassiter books. This crossover between the two just might give me the excuse.
  • Master of Formalities by Scott Meyer — looks to be as inventive and fun as his Magic 2.0 series.
