Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Monday, April 18, 2011


Two weeks worth here, although only three are from the first week.  Heavy on fantasy series here.

  • Steve Alten, Goliath.  Thriller.
  • Stuart Bailey, editor, with Mai Abu ElDahab & David Reinfurt - Dot Dot Dot 13, or Report of the DDDepartment of Science Fiction & Economics.  A strange "little" magazine, published at The Hague; this issue evidently underwritten by The Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design & Architecture.  It strangely includes a "screenplay" of a Playboy Panel that included Asimov, Budrys, Sturgeon, Anderson, Pohl, Clarke, Heinlein, Tenn, van Vogt, and Blish.
  • Greg Bear, Strength of Stones.  SF novel.
  • C. J. Cherryh, Wave Without a Shore.  SF novel.
  • Harlan Coben, Just One Look.  Thriller.
  • Ralph Compton, The Dodge City Trail.  Western,  #8 in The Trail Drive series.
  • John Dalmas, The Orc Wars:  The Yngling Saga, Books I and II.  SF omnibus, containing The Yngling and Homecoming, plus a short story.
  • Suzette Haden Elgin, Twelve Fair Kingdoms. Fantasy novel, first book of the Ozark Fantasy trilogy.
  • Esther Friesner, editor, Chicks in Chainmail.  Fantasy anthology.  Any book with a Muffy Birnbaum story by George Alec Effinger is aces to me.
  • George G. Gilman, Edge:  The Blind Side.  Adult western, #44 in the series.
  • Terry Goodkind, Wizard's First Rule.  Fantasy novel, volume one in the Sword of Truth series.
  • Terry Goodkind, Stone of Tears.  Fantasy novel, volume two in the Sword of Truth series.
  • Terry Goodkind, Chainfire.  Fantasy novel, volume nine in the Sword of Truth series.
  • Robert Jordan, The Great Hunt.  Fantasy novel, volume two in The Wheel of Time series.
  • Robert Jordan, The Dragon Reborn.  Fantasy novel, volume three in The Wheel of Time series.
  • Robert Jordan, The Shadow Rising.  Fantasy novel, volume four in The Wheel of Time series.
  • Robert Jordan, Lord of Chaos.  Fantasy novel, volume six in the Wheel of Time series.
  • Robert Jordan, A Crown of Swords.  Fantasy novel, volume seven in The Wheel of
    Time series.
  • Robert Jordan, The Path of Daggers.  Fantasy novel, volume eight in The Wheel of Time series.
  • Robert Jordan, Crossroads of Twilight.  Fantasy novel, volume ten in The Wheel of Time series.
  • Murphy & Sapir, creators, The Destroyer:  Wolf's Bane.  Action, #132 in the series.  This one appears to be by Mike Newton.  Remo and werewolves?  A great combination.
  • Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, The Relic.  Horror.  The first in a long line of bestsellers.  I think I already have a copy of this, but I'm not sure, so to be on the safe side...
  • Lewis Shiner, Glimpses.  Fantasy novel.  Winner of the World Fantasy Award for best novel.
  • Dan Simmons, The Terror.  Historical thriller and doorstop.
  • James Swallow, Judge Dredd:  Whiteout.  SF tie-in to the comic series.  Hope the planned movie reboot turns out better than the Stallone train wreck.
  • Natsuki Takaya, Fruits Basket 2.  Manga.  I don't do manga, but whenever I see one for a quarter, I pick it up...grandchildren, you know.
  • Dave Wolverton, editor, L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future, Volume IX.  SF anthology.  Hubbard has a lot to answer for, but some of his pulp work and this ongoing contest/series almost redeem him in my eyes.
