Small House of Everything

Monday, June 23, 2014


A lot of fantasy this week.  Is there anyone out there who isn't writing multi-book series?
  • C.J. Cherryh, Fortress of Dragons.  Fantasy, the concluding book in the Fortress quartet.
  • Eoin Colfer, Artemis Fowl:  The Arctic Incident and Artemis Fowl:  The Eternity Code.  YA fantasies about a twelve-year-old criminal genius.
  • Glen Cook, Starfishers.  SF.  Volume 2 in the Starfishers trilogy.
  • Robert Crais, Chasing Darkness.  An Elvis Cole mystery.
  • Clive Cussler with Paul Kemprecos, Medusa.  A Kurt Austin adventure from the NUMA Files.   I've mentioned before that I'm a fan of Kemprecos, so I'm apt to pick up one of these books more than I am others Cussler wrote with different coauthors.
  • M. Coleman Easton, Masters of Glass.  Fantasy.  The author's first book, part of a duology.
  • Alan Dean Foster, The Deluge Drivers.  SF, the conclusion of the Iceriggers trilogy.
  • "Jack Higgins"  (Harry Patterson), Rough Justice.  Thriller.  Former IRA assassin turned British agent Sean Dillon is back.
  • Michael Jahn, The Frighteners.  Movie tie-in novel.  Long before tackling Tolkien, Peter Jackson directed this Michael J. Fox vehicle.
  • Terry C. Johnston, Sioux Dawn.  Western about the 1866 Fetterman Massacre, one of only three in our nation's history in which there were no survivors.  (You know what the other two were.)   This is Book One in Johnston's Plainsmen series.
  • William W. Johnstone with J. A. Johnstone, Assault of the Mountain Man.  A Smoke Jenson western.
  • Neil Jones & David Pringle, editors, Deathwing.  Gaming (Warhammer 40,000) tie-in anthology with ten stories.
  • Henning Mankill, The Return of the Dancing Master.  A non-Wallander mystery.  Translated by Laurie Thompson.
  • "Jack McKinney" (pseudonym used alternately by Brian Daley & James Luceno), Robotech #18:  The End of the Circle.  Gaming (Robotech) tie-in novel, supposedly the last of the series although Luceno went on to write three more.
  • Jody Lynn Nye, Medicine Show.  SF, the second in the Taylor's Ark series.
  • R. A. Salvatore, Gauntlgrym, gaming (Forgotten Realms) tie-in novel, Book 1 in the Neverwinter Saga, and The Witch's Daughter, Book Two in the fantasy series The Chronicles of Ynis Aielle.
  • Charles Sheffield, The Web Between the Worlds.  Hard SF about a space elevator.  This is the revised 2001 edition and has an introduction by Arthur C. Clarke, whose space elevator novel The Fountains of Paradise was published the same year as the first edition of this book.
  • Lawrence Watt-Evans, The Unwilling Warlord.  Fantasy, the second in a series.
  • Margaret Weis & David Baldwin, Dark Heart.  Fantasy, Book 1 of Dragon's Disciple.
