  • "Tabor Evans" (house name; not sure who wrote this one), Longarm and the Bandit Queen.  Number 17 in the long-running adult western series about U.S. Deputy Marshal Custis Long -- .  The popular series began in 1978 with the first book being written by Lou Cameron and has run to over 450 books.  "The notorious Belle Starr is holed up with a nest of desperadoes.  And it looks like some crooked marshals are in cahoots with her.  For a price -- the law won't touch the robbers.  Till Longarm rides into the fugitive camp, posing as one of them.  Longarm has to cross the law -- to round up the raiders and their velvet queen."  "Desperadoes" and people in "cahoots," oh my!
  • George R. R. Martin & Gardner Dozois, editors, Old Mars.  SF anthology with fifteen stories, harking back to the good old days of science fiction when Mars was a planet with breathable air and strange races, societies, and even stranger creatures.  Edgar Rice Burroughs never had it so good.  Authors in the stellar line-up include "James S. A. Corey," Michael Moorcock, Howard Waldrop, Mike Resnick, Joe R. Lansdale, and Allen M. Steele.  This one is going to be fun.
