~ Sherlock Holmes Month at Tip the Wink ~
A few things came in, books I’m excited about. One of them is a Holmes collection, you’ll note.
In the Company of Sherlock Holmes edited by Laurie King and Leslie Klinger [Pegasus Crime, 2015 hardcover, new] – mystery, Sherlock Holmes pastiche story anthology. Interesting set of authors, as shown on cover. This will tide me over – though I have plenty already on hand – while waiting for the 3-volume MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories to arrive near the end of the month.
but there’s more than Holmes…
Twelve Kings in Sharakhai by Bradley P. Beaulieu [DAW Books 2015 hardcover, new] – fantasy novel (580 pages). Really strong reviews, a great cover by Adam Paquette, well liked previous books; these all pushed me to buy this new hardcover fantasy novel. I don’t buy many new hardcovers these days, but this sounds really good. I’m planning on reading this in October, after I finish bingeing on Holmes.
Redshift Rendevous by John E. Stith [Ace 1990 mass market paperback, used] – science fiction with mystery elements. After reading and reviewing Reunion on Neverend by the same author, I decided to try another of his books.
