I’m going to be totally honest with you. I got my dates mixed up and thought April 22nd was a Tuesday, which was when I was planning to release my next book, and it’s actually this coming Sunday. But that’s okay, I’ve got the manuscript all ready, and as promised, the book, In That Quiet Earth, featuring ten short stories by yours truly, will be up and available in ebook to download for free come Sunday morning.
I know it’s been a while since I did an “on the bookshelf,” but that’s mainly because I haven’t been getting much in of late, but I figured it was time to mention some of the recent titles that have arrived and that I’m really excited about.
So we start off with a beautiful new hardcover edition of Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, from the Library of America. Having never read it, and after loving the movie, I’m looking forward to this one. Also have a new one from Daniel Suarez, author of the awesome and bestselling Daemon and Freedom. Kill Decision comes out July 19th. And then a new scifi book from Nancy Kress, After the Fall, Before the Fall, which is a combination eco-thriller and time-traveling book; what’s not to like? And finally we have The Weird, an amazing, massive anthology from the greats, Ann and Jeff VanderMeer, collecting a ton of stories that are simply just weird, from the beginning of the 1900s on up to the present.
