Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Tuesday, February 8, 2011


This was supposed to be a slow week for incoming books, but the best laid plans...Anyway, here's what's new in the I Can't Believe You Can Fit Any More In the House Dept.:
  • "Francis Beeding" - Spellbound (The House of Dr. Edwardes).  Mystery.  Yes, this is the book the Hitchcock film was based on.
  • Laurent Bouzereau, editor - Star Wars:  The Annotated Screenplays. Science fiction.  The first three films.  The detailed notes give one the best idea of Leigh Brackett's contribution to The Empire Strikes Back.
  • Lois McMaster Bujold - Falling Free.  Science fiction.
  • Glen Cook - Water Sleeps.  Science fiction.  Book three of "Glittering Stone" and the eighth novel of the Black Company.
  • Thomas Cullinan - The Bedeviled.  Horror.
  • Winifred Elze - The Changling Garden.  Horror.
  • Loren D. Estleman - Port Hazard.  Western.  A Page Murdock novel.
  • Ken Eulo - The Brownstone.  Horror.
  • J. A. Johnson - The Loner:  The Big Gundown.  Western.  Number 4 in the series.
  • Stephen King - Dreamcatcher.  Horror.  Replacement copy; the old copy went walkabout.
  • Dennis Lehane - Prayers for Rain.  Mystery.  Number five in the Patrick Kenzie/Angela Gerrero series.
  • Archer Mayor - The Ragman's Memory.  Mystery.  Joe Gunther #7; it's been way too long since I read a Joe Gunther novel.
  • Ann McCaffrey & Elizabeth Ann Scarborough - Power Play.  Science Fiction.  The conclusion of the "Power" trilogy.
  • Warren Murphy - Bay City Blast.  Adventure.  The Destroyer #38.
  • [Don Pendleton] - Don Pendleton's Mack Bolan in Rebels and Hostiles.  Adventure.  The Executioner # heaven knows.  This one was written by Michael Kasner.
  • Louise Penny - Still Life.  Mystery.  Winner of the CWA New Blood Dagger.
  • Robert J. Sawyer - Hominids.  Science fiction.  First in The Neanderthal Parallax series.  A Hugo winner.
  • Jory Sherman - Shadow Rider:  Apache Sundown.  Western.  #2 in the series.
  • "Neville Shute" - On the Beach.  Science fiction.  It made a good movie.
  • Dean Wesley Smith & Kristine Kathryn Rusch - Star Trek:  The Next Generation:  Invasion!:  The Soldiers of Fear.  Science fiction.  The second in a series that hits on different parts of the Trek universe.  It should be subtitled "Too Many Colons".
  • A. E. van vogt - The Worlds of A. E. van Vogt.  Science fiction collection.  This is an expansion (by three stories) of The Far-Out Worlds of A. E. van Vogt.
  • Patricia Wentworth - Latter End.  Mystery.  Miss Silver solves another one.

     A pretty good mix, if I do say so myself.
