Yes, it is that time again. Well, it is actually a few days after my reminder went off, but being utterly devoted to rigid timescales is sooo not my style. This month’s additions are :
- Lee, Yoon Ha – Ninefox Gambit rec’d by Renay at LadyBusiness:
“My reaction throughout: “WTF is that? WTF is this? WTF IS HAPPENING???” You start with calendrical rot and end up in a battle sequence that uses a system of loyalty to create defenses known as formations that are then used to fight bad guys and resist weapons. But don’t worry: there are robots (called servitors), so at least one thing will be familiar.”
- Livingston, Michael – The shards of heaven added because of the author talking about battles in GOT
- McDougall, Sophie – Romanitas rec’d by Daniel Godfrey on Tor.com
“Within Romanitas, McDougall explores what the world would be like if the Roman Empire had survived to contemporary times: complete with mechanised crucifixes, magnetic railways … and the continuation of the Roman system of slavery”
- Walton, Jo- Necessity rec’d by Me! because I read & really enjoyed the previous 2 books in the series.
- Johnson, Kij – The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe, added because it is Kij Johnson!
