A pretty steady group of review copy packages showed up while I was at BEA. A stack so large it nearly rivaled the pile I got from BEA, which is rather saying a lot.
I mentioned not too long ago. Existence is David Brin's first new novel in quite awhile and looks to be part of the Kiln Books universe, but looks o standalone well. I might dip in soon although I might finally read the first Uplift novel (I know). Then a bit of surprise is a Doctor Who novel Shada by none other than Douglas Adams and Gareth Roberts. I've become a big Whovian the last few years so I may try this out. Heaven's War by Goyer and Cassutt is their second in a Sci-Fi series I still haven't checked out. At the bottom is Charles Stross's The Apocalypse Codex and given I'm woefully behind on the Laundry series it will be awhile before I get to it.
Lots of coolness in this stack. Going Interstellar is the latest anthology from Baen with a mixture of essays from scientists on space travel and stories about the same. The Boolean Gate by Walter Jon Williams is his new novella for Subterranean Press. The next two galley are highly anticipated novels, by me at least. Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines is one I've mentioned before and I still love the concept. And this copy just so happens to be signed! Sam Sykes is closing out his debut trilogy with The Skybound Sea, a series I've enjoyed quite a bit.
Stefan's recommendation. Peter F. Hamilton's Great North Road is a hugely anticipated novel in the Sci-Fi community and will be my first of his to try since it seems to be standalone. I do have the first of the Void trilogy kicking around here somewhere though. Next is the second volume of the graphic novel adaptation to The Eye of the World. I haven't seen the first, but I'll probably check it out as the art looked great on flip through. The last two are from Edge Publishing with Paradox Resolution about fixing time travel devices by K.A. Bedford who I'm not familiar with and Dave Duncan's Wildcatter who I do know a bit and his is about prospectors in space, which does intrigue me. I love a good story about discovery and greed.
So what caught your eye this week? Out of everything the Sykes, Kristoff, Hines, Jacobs, and Hamilton will hopefully be read and reviewed around their release dates. But I also want to get to Jacobs and Brin. If only I had all the time in the world to read and review...
