On the review front this week, the good folks at Simon & Schuster Canada surprised me with a very nicely packaged copy of Bones Never Die by Kathy Reichs. Yes, that is a CSI style evidence bag in which it came packaged, complete with a chain of custody form on the back. Very nice touch.
Two other interesting additions to the digital shelves that I've been remiss in mentioning are Imaginarium 2013: The Best Canadian Speculative Writing edited by Sandra Kasturi & Samantha Beiko and The Tattooed Witch by Susan J. MacGregor, which came in my Canadian Science Fiction & Fantasy Association's voting packet for the 2014 Aurora Awards.
• Gideon Smith and the Brass Dragon by David Barnett
The first Gideon Smith tale was a Victoriana / steampunk mash-up, an old-fashioned horror story, a penny dreadful romp, and an adventure worthy of Indiana Jones. Can't wait for the sequel!
• Consumed: A Novel by David Cronenberg
Probably my most anticipated read of the Fall, I'm anxious to dig in and see if he can capture his screen magic on the page. Early reviews are mixed, but I like what I'm hearing.
What's topping your shelves this week?
