Saturday Miscellany – 8/11/18

Hey! I’m back — I think. We’ve moved into a different place for the remainder (probably) of our time away from home — a Ronald McDonald House. It is great — by the way, absolutely worth tossing your coins (or bills or checks) into the boxes while getting some fries and whatnot — anyhow, their WiFi seems pretty stable, and there are no immediate plans to update it (I think it was a bad job of installing new hardware that killed things at the last place — the poor hotel staff didn’t have a clue what to do with so many angry customers). I should be okay for the foreseeable future. Thankfully, I was still able to pull together a few 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:

  • In the Stacks: Author’s Enhanced Edition by Scott Lynch — a revised and expanded version of his short story.
  • See You Soon, Afton by Brent Jones — the second of four novellas about Afton Morrison, everyone’s favorite librarian/would-be-murderer.
  • In Truth and Claw by Ari Marmell — the fourth Mick Oberon novel, and the second reminder that I need to read the second Mick Oberon novel (also, #s 3 and 4) — bought it years ago, just need to, you know read it. A Fae living in 1930’s Chicago and working as a PI. I mean, come on, who doesn’t want to read that?

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to Leah’s Bookish Obsession and Johnny for following some form of the blog this week.

  1. From that How to Approach Book Bloggers post:
    paraphrase “it doesn’t mean your book is the pants”.

    Au contraire, my cherie! It means EXACTLY that.

    That was a really good post. Too bad more writers don’t use common sense and just think about what they’re doing when contacting bloggers. But I guess it really does separate the pro’s from the complete amateurs who have no hope of ever getting better.

    Glad that Ronald McDonald house is treating you well. I wish more people understood just how much places like that help out the parents in such tough situations.

  2. And just so you know, this showed up in my feed, but 4hrs after you originally posted it. It shows up as posted 5hrs ago, but didn’t show up in my feed until about an hr ago? Unless I missed it, but I find that hard to believe 🙂
