The bi-weekly time to shelve the new arrivals has come which means pictures of the latest books. Lots of big names with books are just coming out or are coming out quite soon.
That slim number at the top is an early galley of Brandon Sanderson's novella Legion, which I'll probably read rather sooner than later. Next is Baba Yaga's Daughter and Other Stories of the Old Races by C.E. Murphy who I haven't read before, but it sounds like an interesting small collection. Then we have a review copy of the UK edition of Railsea by China Mieville another I'd like to get to soon. As usual reviews are mixed but generally positive. I've just finished The King's Blood by Daniel Abraham, which was a long-time pre-order for me as he won me over long ago with The Long Price Quartet.
Terminal World, but I realize that was a slight departure for him. Last in this stack is Other Seasons by Neal Barrett, Jr. who I don't recall having read before. I'll probably dip in a bit to see if it is to my liking in the next few months.
Prepare to Die is Paul Tobin's debut novel just coming out from Night Shade, but he has written for many comic books over the years and given this is a superhero novel I have high hopes. Alexander Outlander: Space Pirate by G.J. Koch is one I may have passed over if it weren't for Justin's great review that sold me hard on it. If you didn't like the movie Ice Pirates you have no soul. Next is another debut for Night Shade Osiris by E.J. Swift about the last future city on Earth.
mentioned before. When Will You Rise: Stories to End the World by Mira Grant are the related short stories to the Newsflesh Trilogy that I've been meaning to read. Something tells me I should read the novels first. Silver by Rhiannon Held is a debut UF, but given I'm a bit tired of werewolves I might pass. Last, but certainly not least is the 2012 edition of the Nebula Awards Showcase. I've already read half the stories over the last year so I should certainly read the other half herein. The cover by the way is a beautiful Michael Whelan piece.
