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:
- Books worth $2.5 million stolen in a daring London heist — Obviously, not suggesting this was justified, but c’mon . . . who hasn’t been there when it comes to a book you just “have to have”?
- Neil Gaiman announces Neverwhere sequel, The Seven Sisters — huh. Okay…Neverwhere isn’t my favorite, but sign me up for more.
- How It Happened by Brad Parks — Parks gives a thumbnail view of his career
- Author Kevin Hearne Is Leading A Plague of Giants — ooooh. This is going to be good.
- Just Who Are the Tuatha Dé Danaan, Anyway? — can’t help but run into them in UF lately, but everyone has their own take — this is a good look back on early stories about the Tuatha Dé Danaan.
- A Couple of Book-ish Related Podcast Episodes you might want to give a listen:
- Episode 17 of Two Crime Writers — usual good stuff, plus the interview with Adrian McKinty is hilarious
- Elan Mastai by Beaks & Geeks
- This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:
- The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak — okay, it came out last week, but I forgot to mention it. This celebration of the 80s looks great.
Lastly, I’d like to say hi and welcome to Mollie Player for following the blog this week.
