Book Porn August 25-30




Only four books this week, three of them being review copies and the other being a gift (the Zafón book was sent to me by Robert from Fantasy Book Critic).

Left to Right: Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind (ARC for the limited-edition version coming out in late 2008 from Subterranean Press); Alissa Torres, American Widow (just finished reading it - highly, highly recommended tale of loss after 9/11).

Left to right: Stan Nicholls, Orcs; Brent Weeks, The Way of Shadows. The Nicholls is the street release book, while the Weeks is the bound galley version of the MMPB coming out shortly.

Glad you got the book Larry :D

Thanks again for sending it to me (Robert, right? I remember your son's name being Zane, so I'm making an educated guess here). My mom started reading it last night and she said it had a good start. Hopefully she'll have time to read it all in the near future, as I really think she'll enjoy it as much as I did when I first read it back in 2005.

Yeah, it's me :) Zaneasher is actually my old user name. I still use it sometimes. Hope your mom likes the book!

I like the cover art of these.

The one in the lower right corner reminds me of the Innocent Mage cover art.

I've been wondering if you've been paying attention to those, considering your degree and all...so see any you'd like in the near future? ;)

I always pay attention to cover art.

I don't know what are they about.

I wouldn't know either in most of these cases, as I post the photos before I read the books :P
