Some interesting stuff this week, along with another pretentious UFO book.  The DeMeulemeester e-book is a collection of SF stories by eleven 2001 graduates of the Clarion Workshop.

  • Daniel Abraham, An Autumn War.  SF.  Book Three of the Long Price Quartet.
  • J. Lee Butts, Hell to Pay:  The Life and Violent Times of Eli Gault.  Western.
  • Charles de Lint, Tapping the Dream Tree.  Fantasy collection with 18 stories.
  • William W. Johnstone, The Last of the Dog Team.  Military thriller.
  • Margo Lanagan, White Time.  SF collection with ten stories "written in the lead-up to, during, or immediately after Clarion West Writers Workshop 1999."
  • Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, Agent of Change.  SF novel of the Liaden universe.
  • Michael Linaker, Don Pendleton's The Executioner #203:  Hard Contact.  Men's Adventure.

  • Brad Steiger and Sherry Hansen Steiger, The Rainbow Conspiracy. UFO bushwah.  The cover proclaims "THE GREATEST COVER-UP OF OUR TIME!" while the bibliography lists books by George Adamski, Gray Barker, Otto Binder, Raymond A. Palmer, and sixteen books by Brad Steiger; surprisingly, it also mentions books by Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke; not surprisingly, it does not mention Philip Klass.  The bibliography also lists articles from such distinguished periodicals as Saga, Argosy, True, Male, Men, Real, UFO Universe, UFO Sightings, Flying Saucer Review, and Right to Know Forum.  Gotta love the cranks.
  • Maria Tatar, editor, The Classic Fairy Tales.  Collection with more than forty fairy tales by Charles Perrault, the Brothers Grimm, Joseph Jacobs, Angela Carter, Margaret Atwood, Anne Sexton, Roald Dahl, and others, as well as twwelve critcal essays by the editor, Bruno Bettelheim, Jack Zipes, and others.
