Saturday Miscellany – 2/25/17

Skimpy results for 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 Accidental Detective by Michael RN Jones — Meet Victor Jones, Mr. Robot with a less creepy, humorous and Farenheit Press-ish twist.
  • Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames — a fantasy novel about a mercenary group “getting the band back together” in a world where they’re treated like rock stars.

    A Couple of Book-ish Related Podcast Episodes you might want to give a listen:

  • Episode 17 of Two Crime Writers — usual good stuff, plus the interview with Adrian McKinty is hilarious
  • Elan Mastai by Beaks & Geeks

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

  • The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak — okay, it came out last week, but I forgot to mention it. This celebration of the 80s looks great.

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and welcome to Mollie Player for following the blog this week.

Saturday Miscellany 1/28/17

Thanks to those who left comments/got a hold of me about that update earlier this week — he’s doing better now, and was discharged.

Here are the odds ‘n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye — I’m on a hotel wifi, which is spotty (is that a tautology?), so between the distractions this week and the wifi, this might be brief. You’ve probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and welcome to bettybookreviews and BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BOOK BLOG for following the blog (in one form or another) this week — both look like nifty book blogs. Thanks also to Nothing better than a good book… for the encouraging words.

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

  • Martians Abroad by Carrie Vaughn — YA-friendly SF about a couple of Martian kids coming to school on Earth. Lots of fun from one of my favorite authors.
  • Heartstone by Elle Katharine White — Austen + Dragons in a way that isn’t Novik’s Temeraire books. (if that sounds snide, it wasn’t intended to be — this looks inventive and cool)
  • Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth — this looks very non-Divergent, and pretty interesting.
  • Escaping Infinity by Richard Paolinelli — if Don Henley and Glenn Frey wrote a SF novel instead of a song.

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

Saturday Miscellany – 1/14/17

The last couple of weeks have been the snowiest here since the 1890s — which is a pretty long time. The kids have had an extra week of break, I’ve not been able to make it into work 3 days in the last 2 weeks (and I’m doing better than some). Which has played havoc with posting/reading schedules for ye olde blog, too. One of those things that I’m the only one who notices, probably.

Still, it’s Saturday, so time for some links and whatnot. 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:

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

  • Big Law by Ron Liebman — where big business and law intersect, you find all sorts of nasty machinations. This looks promising.
  • The Silver Skull by Anne Renwick — book two of The Elemental Web Chronicles, the first book of which was a lot of fun.

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and welcome to littlemissnosleep and charmingkitties for following the blog this week.
