Just the one new review arrival this week, but it's an exciting one - a paperback ARC of Brian Staveley's second installment in his Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne, The Providence of Fire. This will likely be the next big, thick tome I relax with, taking the opportunity to lose myself in his world once again.
On the new purchases front, just one new title there as well, but it's an exciting one. Julie E. Czerneda's Species Imperative omnibus edition is out, complete with the dedication to her loyal biogeeks . . . including yours truly!
• 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?
