From the Shelf to the Page: This Week in the Ruins

Stacking The Shelves and Mailbox Monday are a pair of weekly memes that are about sharing the books that came your way over the past week, and which you've added to your shelves - whether they be physical or virtual, borrowed or bought, or for pleasure or review.

Three new titles this week - a finished hardcover of Killing is My Business by Adam Christopher; a movie tie-in edition of The Gunslinger by Stephen King (watch for my Dark Tower giveaway coming up this week!); and an electronic ARC of  Zippered Flesh 3 edited by Weldon Burge (with stories by Graham Masterton, William F. Nolan, Jack Ketchum, and more).



It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is another weekly meme, this time focused on what books are spending the most time in your hands and in your head, as opposed to what's been added to your shelf.

A fresh start this week, with Weldon Burge's Zippered Flesh 3 an immediate must-read, and Terry Brooks attempting to rekindle my fantasy nostalgia with The Black Elfstone.


What's topping your shelves this week?


  1. I love that tie-in cover! Wasn't a big fan of the book, but I definitely want to check out the movie. I'm curious to see how they do it, King's novels aren't always the easiest to adapt.

  3. The Dark Tower series is one of the Stephen king things I haven't read. I might look out for the film and then decide on the books.

  4. Great set of books you got and he cover to Zippered Flesh looks really creepy!

  5. Can't wait to hear what you think of the new Shannara. I'm interested in seeing how it all ends.

  6. Your books look like fun to read. I haven't read The Dark Tower but I enjoy Stephen King. Have a great week.

  7. I really enjoy the Ray Electromatic books -- I grabbed that one on Netgalley as soon as I saw it! Hope you enjoy.

  8. I'm looking for to the new season of Shannara although my husband didn't like the last one too well. Greasy haul!

  9. Oh! I love the movie tie in cover for The Dark Tower! Great haul. - Katie
