Book Recs

* Bradley Denton's earlier novels are finally available in ebook: Blackburn and Lunatics

* Linda Nagata's The Trials is coming out in August, sequel to The Red: First Light
Publishers Weekly: Nagata (The Bohr Maker) writes very good action sequences and the book moves well, even when its protagonist is pinned to a bed and relearning how to use his body. Shelley is a nicely developed character with an interesting voice. Fans of thoughtful, cynical, and not particularly jingoistic military SF will love this book.

* Barbara Hambly has put her short fiction and novellas in ebook. These were previously available only on her web site. There are Sherlock Holmes stories, Benjamin January stories, Sunwolf and Starhawk, and Windrose stories.

I'll be minioning at the workshop so if you know of anything I should make sure gets taken care of let me know. :)

Yay! Looking forward to seeing you!

I've apparently been scheduled to be your unintentional shadow this con...

What with the workshop, I think we're going to see a lot of each other this con. :)
