September 8-10 Book Porn


The past few days have seen the arrival of six galleys/ARCs and review copies, as well as five more books that I ordered from Amazon. First, the galleys, from two sources, the recently-established Underland Press and from Tor:

Top-left: Brian Evenson, Last Days; Will Elliott, The Pilo Family Circus.

Center: George R.R. Martin (ed.), Wild Cards: Busted Flush

Here are three more publisher-sent books, from Penguin/Roc:

Left: Dennis L. McKiernan, City of Jade (continuation of his Mithgar series); Mercedes Lackey, Foundation; Barb Hendree, Blood Memories

Here are three of five books that I ordered from Amazon this week, the first two from the Reading the World program that I blogged about last spring:

Left: Taha Muhammad Ali, So What (bilingual Arabic/English en face poetry); Ma Jian, Beijing Coma; Thomas Ligotti, The Nightmare Factory: Volume 2 (graphic novel adaptation)

And finally, the third and fourth volumes in Elizabeth Bear's Promethean Age series:

Left: Ink and Steel; Hell and Earth


If I receive any more books this week, I'll blog about it with photos on Saturday.

It went through, Jeff, even though I didn't see this comment until just now. I responded, of course.

I just finished Last Days -- fantastic -- I had read The Brotherhood of Mutilation and thought highly of it so I'm glad to see the sequel/expansion/reissue of it.

I just started Pilo Family Circus which I've been itching to read since the beginning of 07.

After reading The Unblemished this year and now Pilo I'm really confused on what they are. Are they dark fantasy or horror and what's the difference between the two. Are they the same or different. Just something I've been mulling over lately.
