Saturday Miscellany – 3/25/17

Yeah, it got quiet around here this week — I’ve got 2 books that I’m excited to talk about, a couple of more that I really want to talk about . .. and a couple of “contractual obligation” books (even if the contract’s just with me). Basically too many books to blog about to be quiet — but man, I’m tired. Inexplicably so. Anyway, keep checking, I’ll get underway again soon. I do have a handful of partially written posts, just have to figure out how to end them.

Enough about me, here are the 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 Couple of Book-ish Related Podcast Episodes you might want to give a listen:

  • Reed Farrel Coleman – What You Break — Stephen Usery’s interview with Reed Farrel Coleman is great.
  • This week’s Two Crime Writers and a Microphone is loads of fun — starting with the interview with Russel D McLean. I can’t imagine anyone can listen to his pitch for his new novel, Ed’s Dead and not rush to buy it. I couldn’t.

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

  • Chalk by Paul Cornell — there’s magic, bullying and a look at Thatcher’s England from the pen of one of the better authors around.
  • The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi — the beginning of a new space opera series

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and welcome to Let’s Read Something New and publishquest2017 for following the blog this week.
