The last couple of weeks has been on the lighter side of books showing up in the mail, but quite a few good looking one are now entering the to be read stacks including one I have special plans for.
Twelve by Jasper Kent - A historical vampire novel that is just being released in the states after much ballyhoo in the UK. Looks really grand and as though the author has done loads of research to make it as historical as possible. He going as far as to use the old Julian calendar as was the parlance of the time instead of the now standard Gregorian.
The Zombies of Lake Woebegotten by Harrison Geillor - The latest in the mash-up craze, which I haven't been a fan of. I do like the idea of subverting this American classic though.
Steampunk Reloaded edited by Ann & Jeff VanderMeer - I refuse to call this one Steampunk II. It is and shall be known as Steampunk Reloaded, which is a much cooler title and as the editors had wanted it. This will definitely be read quite soon.
Esperanza by Trish J. Macgregor - Tor has been trying to diversify themselves beyond traditional Fantasy the last few years and this Supernatural Thriller certainly doesn't come to mind when you think Tor. Very cool metallic cover.
Antiphon by Ken Scholes - The finished copy of the third Psalms of Isaak series, which I recently read and enjoyed despite it lacking the same hold on me as the first two volumes. Still a great series more people should be checking out.
