Stacking The Shelves: Week 2 (2022)

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books we are adding to our shelves, whether they be physical or digital. This includes physical books bought, digital books downloaded, and those titles received for review.

Review Titles

A pair of review titles finding their way onto the shelves this week, courtesy of Rebellion and Sarah Chorn.

Set in a planet-sized matriarchal city where magic and technology freely bleed together, a male courtesan’s quest for vengeance against his aristocrat father draws him into an ancient struggle between dragons, necromancers, and his home district’s violent history. It should be no surprise I've had Silk Fire by Zabé Ellor on my watch-list since August! Available 5 July 2022 from Rebellion.

I don't know that there's an SFF author writing today who is more emotionally engaging than Sarah Chorn, which makes A Sorrow Named Joy an automatic must-read. Joy desires nothing more than her husband's happiness. She spends her days creating the perfect life for him in their idyllic suburban home. Everything is neat, predictable, and in its place . . . but when Joy finds a picture that hints at a past she cannot remember, the facade cracks and secrets are revealed. Available 10 Jan 2022.

New Acquisitions: Paperback Treasures

Just one new acquisition on the paperback front this week...

Dragons of a Fallen Sun and Dragons of a Vanished Moon are the first and last book (I still need to find a copy of the middle book) of Dragonlance: The War of Souls, by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman. With all the legal wrangling over and Dragons of Deceit, the first new Dragonlance novel in over a decade, scheduled to hit shelves this summer, I'm excited to immerse myself in Krynn once again.

New Acquisitions: Digital Titles

A pair of new acquisitions on the digital front...

I'm a huge fan of Henrietta Soto's loving, passionate take on stories of dominant women and the submissive men who love them, so Yes, Mistressa 5-story anthology of stories I've yet to read, is a perfect excuse to indulge.

Not only is Wol-vriey one of my favorite authors of Bizarro horror, but Women sounds like exactly my kind of story, with five very angry women out to settle a score. "What the hell did John Miller do to anger these five women this much?" indeed!
