Erikson, Steven: Bauchelain and Korbal Broach: Three Short Novels of the Malazan Empire (tpo)


As soon as I get hold of a copy. Those were two delightfully twisted individuals!

I've read one of the three novellas in that collection - they were previously released as individual chapbooks. It's a fun change to read something so short by Erikson. I'm waiting for my paperback copy of Toll The Hounds right now (I can only read those books in paperback - the hardcovers are just too huge to lug around).


message 4: by Jeffrey (new)

Jeffrey | 50 comments I have Lamentation out fo the library in HC so maybe I will read it. Its the third time I took it out so far.

I want to read Burn me deadly as I read his first book, but have to see if my library gets it.

I think you should add the new George Mann book which is Steampunk. Its coming out in September too

Kathi | 3088 comments Mod
Well, I liked some of Gabaldon's Outlander books, so I may look for that in a few months when it might turn up at the used book store, and the same with the Lackey/Mallory Enduring Flame book. I'm really trying to not buy new unless I have gift cards. If the Banks' book is a Culture novel, I may go for that, too.


message 6: by Kelly (new)

Kelly (sisimka) Atwood, Margaret: The Year of the Flood
I hope my library gets this one! Otherwise, I may end up buying it, probably in paperback though.

Bear, Elizabeth: All the Windwracked Stars (pap)
Someone did a nice review of this, I added it to my wishlist.

Cook, Glen: The Return of the Black Company (Omnibus #3) (tp)
An old friend keeps encouraging me to read these. Got a few up the back of the TBR shelf somewhere…

Gilman, Felix: Gears of the City (tp)
Still have to read his debut, Thunderer. Heard a lot of nice things about it. Again, on the TBR shelf…

Lackey / Mallory: The Phoenix Transformed (#3 Enduring Flame)
I enjoyed the first of this new trilogy, luckily, they are available at my library.

Meyer, Stephenie: The Host (tp)
I quite liked this one. The writing was a tad naïve, but very readable.

Parker, K J: The Company (tp)
Read a few conflicting reviews of this one, I’m intrigued.

Twelve Hawks, John: The Golden City (#3 Fourth Realm trilogy)
If the library gets it, I’ll read it for the sake of finishing the trilogy…how bad could it possibly be?

Weber, David: Worlds of Weber (pbo)
Read the blurb, sounds great. In fact, just went online and got it. Yipee!

Ed. Little: Intelligent Design (pbo)
I love anthologies.



message 7: by Ron (new)

Ron (ronbacardi) | 302 comments For me, the Banks, pretty much sight unseen; the McAuley, ditto; and the Adam Roberts if the blurb doesn't look too silly.


colleen the convivial curmudgeon (blackrose13) Nothing I'm waiting on or have heard of before, but "Hieber, Leanna Renee: The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker" sounds interesting. Also, potentially, "Downum, Amanda: The Drowning City (#1 Necromancer Chronicles)", though I'll have to see what the reviews say first.


message 9: by Bill (new)

Bill (reedye) | 56 comments There's a few on there I've already got from first time round.
Anderson / Sebanc: The Stoneholding (tp)
McKillip, Patricia A: The Bell at Sealey Head (tp)
Roberts, Adam: Splinter (pbo)
Wurts, Janny: Fugitive Prince (reissue) (pap)

Didn't know The Stoneholding had been picked up. Don't like the cover much. My self pubbed copy (as by Mark James 2004?) had cover art by Ted Nasmith. Much, much better.

(Splinter: When Hector discovers his father has channelled the family fortune into a bizarre cult who await the imminent destruction of the Earth, he is wracked by feelings of betrayal and doubt. Things change, however, the night an asteroid plummets from space and shatters the planet, leaving Hector and the remnants of the human race struggling for survival on a splinter of the earth.) I got a nice slipcased 2 HC book copy in 2007 (with Off On a Comet by Jules Verne which inspired it)


message 10: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn (seeford) | 126 comments Thanks for the list Stefan - it is a great reminder for me to go reserve ones I want at my library. Usually I get one of the first copies in, when I do this. Here are my picks:

Atwood, Margaret: The Year of the Flood - this is supposed to be set in the same world as Oryx & Crake, so I will definitely be reading this one.

Bear, Elizabeth: All the Windwracked Stars (pap)- Looks interesting and got three great reviews, so I will be reading this one.

Gabaldon, Diana: An Echo in the Bone (#7 Outlander) - I LOVE this series and have been anxiously awaiting the new one - this is a 'buy in HC, first edition' series for me!

Hieber, Leanna Renee: The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker (pbo) - the title is catching my attention, so I'll be checking this one out.

Lee / Miller: Fledgling (Liaden) - I love this series, so this is a must-read for me, probably buy it in pb if I enjoy it.

Meyer, Stephenie: The Host (tp) - Haven't read the Twilight series yet, so I'm going to start with this one and see what all the fuss is about.

Moon, Elizabeth: The Serrano Succession (Change of Command and Against the Odds) (trd &tp) - I've already read this whole series - twice! Very enjoyable, but not planning on reading it again soon, my tbr list is too long. = )

Pelevin, Victor: The Sacred Book of the Werewolf (tp)-Looks interesting, getting this one from my library.

Roberts, Adam: Splinter (pbo) - read this one last year & didn't like it much at all.

Twelve Hawks, John: The Golden City (#3 Fourth Realm trilogy) - will read this to finish out the trilogy

Weber, David: Worlds of Weber (pbo)- I really enjoy Weber's space opera, so I will be checking this one out.

Ed. Little: Intelligent Design (pbo)- sounds interesting, will be reading this if I can get it from the library.



message 11: by Kathryn (new)

Kathryn (kathry) Stefan, Thanks so much for posting this list every month.

There are many I'm interested in but the two I will most likely read are the new Twelve Hawks and Atwood.


message 12: by Ken (new)

Ken (ogi8745) | 1348 comments I have to say there is nothing I want there. Maybe Parkers book The Company but its not a book I have to get.


message 13: by Renee (new)

Renee (elenarenee) | 82 comments Stefan have I mentioned lately how wonderful you are thanks for the book list now maybe you can convince the credit card company to up my limit. LOL
