Saturday Miscellany — 5/18/19

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 feature a bunch of books that have a lot of potential, but I’m not sure I’ll work too hard to get to (but I might, because I’m pretty curious about them), and one that I’m really looking forward to:

  • Bad Bastards by Paul Heatley — Guy falls in love with a Girl. Girl’s father is head of a motorcyle gang and doesn’t approve. Gang expresses this disapproval all over the guy. Guy decides to fight back. Problems surely ensue. Sounds like the closest thing Fahrenheit Press can get to a Love Story.
  • If She Wakes by Michael Koryta — the plot doesn’t sound like something I’d enjoy (but wouldn’t judge those who do), but Koryta is constitutionally incapable of writing a non-gripping book….
  • The Window and the Mirror Book One: Oesteria and the War of Goblinkind by Henry Thomas — sounds like a perfectly fine fantasy story, and he’s that Henry Thomas, so I’m curious about what he’s done.
  • Dragons Suck by Benjamin Gamble — snarky, slacker in Fantasy World gets sent on a quest to save his village from a dragon. Looks like a bunch of fun, really.
  • Last Tango in Cyberspace by Steven Kotler — A cyberpunk tale about drugs and other things.
  • The Obsoletes by Simeon Mills — undercover teen robots in high school
  • Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope by Mark Manson — the sequel to The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to flowersinthebrain, tracyvende and Britt Skrabanek for following the blog this week.
