When I go home, there was a package waiting for me. It contained a copy of Ari Marmell’s In Thunder Forged from Pyr Books. Along with Wrath-Breaking Tree (James Enge) and Kindred and Wings (Philippa Ballantine) that came Thursday and Nebula Awards Showcase (Catherine Asaro, ed.), which arrived last week, that’s four from Pyr in about ten days. The Marmell and Nebula Awards will be reviewed first since the former will be out in a couple of weeks, and the latter is out already. That’s not to say some of the other review copies Pyr has sent me won’t end up in the queue in the next couple of weeks.
I’ve also got several titles from Angry Robot in my ereader: The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig (which I’ve already started and am loving), iD by Madelaine Ashbury, and A Discourse in Steel by Paul S. Kemp.
Finally, I’m looking forward to diving into No Return by Zachary Jernigan. He was kind enough to send me a copy of his first novel. This one got some good advance buzz, and I love the cover. It’s up Blue Blazes.
Anyway, those are the novels from publishers and authors I’ve agreed to read and review. I still plan to increase the amount of short fiction I review. (Sooper Seekrit Project #2 requires me to do so.) I’m also going to stick in some novels just because I want to read them.
Think all that will keep me busy?
