If you’re on Twitter, Elizabeth Bear is running a Twitter giveaway for an ARC of The Tempering of MenThe Tempering of Men, the sequel to A Companion to Wolves (co-written with Sarah Monette), will be released in August so this is a good opportunity to read it very early if you win!

This year Daniel Abraham has two books coming out from Orbit Books.  The publisher recently announced that they will be doing an e-book promotion for these two books so when you buy one, you get the other book with it and the opportunity to try both first books in each new series. The Dragon’s Path, coming out on April 11, is the first book in an epic fantasy series called The Dagger and the Coin.  Leviathan Wakes, a space opera co-written with Ty Franck under the name James S. A. Corey, will be released on June 15 and is the first book in the Expanse series.

In case you skip the weekly books bought/received post, I’ll mention this again – The Book Smugglers announced a Nebula Readathon covering all the books in the novel and young adult categories.  It’s a pretty intense schedule with a lot of books, some of which are two or more books into a series, so I know I won’t be reading all of them myself.  But it does look fun and I’m going to try to read at least some of them, starting with The Native Star by M. K. Hobson (and I’ll finally read A Conspiracy of Kings later!).
