Saturday Miscellany – 6/24/17

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:

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

  • The Force by Don Winslow — Winslow writes about a corrupt group in the NYPD — the hype around this one is strong, and it looks good. Probably going to crack this one open Monday — can’t wait.
  • The Deepest Grave by Harry Bingham — Last year, I’d fully intended on reading all the Fiona Griffiths novels after really getting sucked into the first. Whoops — 17 months later and not only haven’t I read another, there’s a new one.
  • Indigo by Charlaine Harris, Christopher Golden, Kelley Armstrong, Jonathan Maberry, Kat Richardson, Seanan McGuire, Tim Lebbon, Cherie Priest, James A. Moore, and Mark Morris — no, really — all those authors, one novel. I don’t get it, but I’m intrigued. The story about an investigative reporter/superpowered vigilante seems almost as interesting as see how all this works.
  • Run Program by Scott Meyer — a rogue AI with the intelligence of a 6-year old gets loose and wreaks havoc. Which is an interesting starting point — add in the fact that this is Scott Meyer, so it’ll be well-told and funny. Likely a winner.

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and welcome to ellabyrde, QuietBlogster, and amandanicolette for following the blog this week.
