September 16-18 Book Porn


Six books pictured this time, although a seventh I ordered, Shaun Tan's The Arrival, is but a replacement for one that I sent overseas to my favorite stalker. First three books pictured are galleys or review copies sent to me by Random House or Tor, the others being books that I ordered from Amazon.

Left: Laurell K. Hamilton, Swallowing Darkness (Nov. release - doubtless even darkness itself has a sexual connotation now); David Sherman and Dan Cragg, Starfist: Wings of Hell (Dec. 2008 release, with a title that makes me wonder if it's military SF or demonic fisting).


Left: Steven Erikson, Toll the Hounds (eighth Malazan volume to be released next Tuesday according to the press release, but which might already be available in stores, currently 240 pages into it); Thomas Ligotti, Teatro Grottesco (almost done with this, with a review forthcoming in the next month or so)


Left: Paolo Bacigalupi, Pump Six and Other Stories (read the first story and am really curious about the others now); David Wroblewski, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle (OK, I was curious. Bite me...)

You know the cool thing about The story of Edgar Sawtelle? You probably got one of the last copies before the front cover was ruined by the giant "Oprah's Book Club" label.
