Saturday Miscellany – 9/8/18

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:

  • Night and Silence by Seanan McGuire — my favorite ongoing UF series (until Butcher starts publishing regularly again) gets a new installment, it’s intense, it’s good. I’ll probably be a wreck when I finish it.
  • Depth of Winter by Craig Johnson — I’ve been waiting on the edge of my seat since about 30 seconds after reading the last page of The Western Star. This is gonna be huge. Johnson’s doing a reading in town at the end of the month, and a book comes with the ticket, so I have to wait a little longer before I dive in. On the plus side, I didn’t have to choose between this and Night and Silence (that’s a choice that could turn me into Chidi Anagonye)
  • The Man Who Came Uptown by George Pelecanos
  • The Spaceship Next Door by Gene Doucette — a UFO lands and does nothing for 3 years?
  • Voyage of the Dogs by Greg van Eekhout — Homeward Bound in space? Whatever, read that Big Idea article linked above and you’ll see why I feel like I have to read this.

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to Ola G for following the blog this week.

  1. I read that “social networks/cover” article. What a flipping puff piece that says absolutely nothing with as many words as possible.

    The writer is either young and an idiot, with ignoring the whole freaking history of covers, or they’re deliberately writing that way. Either way, Truck-san wants a date with them!
    (google truck-san or truck-kun if you’re not familiar with that concept)
