New Arrivals, June 3

Three things came in, I’m really excited about all of them.

Concrete Angel by Patricia Abbott [Polis Books 2015 trade paper]
Blogger and short story writer extrodinaire Patricia Abbott’s first novel has just been published, and my copy came yesterday. I’m halfway into a long SF novel (see below) but as soon as I finish the last page of that I’ll start reading this one. Oh boy, oh boy!

Nemesis Games by James S.A. Corey (Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) [Orbit 2015 hardcover]
I said in the post a couple of days ago that this new book in the The Expanse series “is due in a couple of weeks”. Nope. It came yesterday. In 2012 I read the first in the series, Leviathan Wakes and liked it a lot. I’m rereading it now to get up to speed on the series: Leviathan Wakes, Caliban’s War, Abbadon’s Gate, The Butcher of Anderson Station (novella)Cibola Burn, Gods of Risk (novella) and this new one, Nemesis Games. 

Resorting to Murder edited by Martin Edwards [British Library 2015 trade paper]
A collection of classic British short stories following the theme of crime in resorts and vacation spots. Should be a lot of fun.

  1. Richard, both Patti and Martin’s books are on my reading list. Here I’ll also include Martin’s “The Golden Age of Murder.”

  2. Patti Abbott says:

    Oh, boy, oh, boy is right. Thanks so much!

  3. Jeff Meyerson says:

    What Rick said. I got Patti’s book yesterday too and plan to get it autographed when we meet for dinner two weeks from this moment. I hope to read it too!

    I also got Murray Leinster’s Planets of Adventure.

  4. After a couple weeks of reading 600+ page books, I decided to read a few shorter books. I just finished SLOW BULLETS by Alastair Reynolds. But it will be back to Big Books next week. I have C. J. Sansom’s LAMENTATION (#6 in the Shardlake series).

  5. Jeff Meyerson says:

    I like the Shardlake series too.

  6. I have GOT to get caught up with the Expanse series. It’s not too bad though, I only have Cibola Burn and this one to be caught up. Such an enjoyable series of books. I picked up the new Lee/Miller book this week and am trying to get caught up on that end too.
