Just found a copy of Julian May's Intervention at a random 2nd hand shop stop. Very Happy Guess a re-read of all the Galactic Milieu books is in order. Very Happy

I rather think so myself. Very Happy Only read the others once each so far, so it's almost like a brand new series. Wink

Took delivery of the new Ben Aaronovitch book Broken Homes today, as well as Earthseed by Pamela Sargent, and it's two sequels which I never knew existed until somebody here told me. YA sci-fi, but the first was one of the best I ever read. Very Happy

Ordered:
Lock In - John Scalzi
Mirror Empire - Kameron Hurley

They're both released next week, though I think the UK edition of Mirror Empire is the week after. I actually have Hurley's God's War on my pile unread, with the rest of that trilogy still to buy, but there's enough positive buzz on this new series that I'm eager to get in right away.

Actually, now I think of it there are also a couple of Scalzi books I've bought and not read yet, too...

Picked up 2 Thieves World books, a couple Iain M Banks (Excession and Look To Windward I think), and The Amazing Maurice & His Educated Rodents by Pratchett this weekend.

I really enjoyed Moxyland. Thanks again for bringing the author to my attention. Very Happy

Got a delivery yesterday, my one missing Culture novel, The Hydrogen Sonata, as well as Feersum Endjin, completing my collection of Iain M Banks books.

Also Foxglove Summer, the 5th Peter Grant book by Ben Aaronovitch. (A sort of contemporary magical realism I guess, I recommend them as a fun read. If I have one criticism, it's a minor over-use of pop-culture references. But just a minor one.)

The Runes of the Earth. In the mood to give it another read afresh and have the paperback this time.

Well, purely by chance I wondered into a bookshop yesterday and found Fall Of Light, the next Kharkanas book by Ericson.

I only found out it existed a few days ago here on the Watch, so I couldn't resist.

Of course, this might imperil my planned Bakker re-read, since I will have to read Forge Of Darkness again as well.

Picked up a newish William Gibson The Peripheral, and something I swore I would never do, 3 Feist books (I think it's the Conclave of Shadows series), but they were such a bargain I couldn't pass them up. Very Happy
