Weekly Journal February 14-20

I got to finish a series this week. Justina Robson’s delightful enchanted cyborg hero Lila Black is at roads end of the Quantum Gravity series. I finished Down to the Bone this weekend and it had some unexpected twists and turns you can expect a review of in the next few weeks.

I also finished listening to book two of the Fey by Kristine Kathryn Rusch and it intrigues me. It is a different take on a fantasy world where the Fey’s powers corresponds more to traditional folklore than high fantasy. Book three should be coming up in March when I get my next credit at Audible.

I would like to start listening to Stephen King’s Dark Tower series on Audible but they don’t have  the first volume. They should get it. Is it available for online shopping anywhere? I have only seen the tape/cd version.

I have ordered my books for March have you? If not take a look at my picks of new books next month.

  • Out of the three I want for March two are already available as ebooks and I’ve bought them. The third (Embedded) is the usual publisher trick of not listing the Kindle version until the day the book comes out so I don’t care anymore.

    I may be interested in the new Eric Brown but his publisher Solaris are utterly terrible at getting ebook rights before a paper book launch. It’s listed as 1st April for me in paper but it’ll no doubt be another few months (again) before they get off their backsides and sort it out.
