  • Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuireBooks of 2012: Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire

    Instead of writing one huge post of all the books I’m looking forward to in 2012, I decided to highlight some of these books in their own posts throughout the rest of this year. That way I can include as much information as I want about each one without it being an 8-mile long post and can just compile a list of links to these posts at the end of the year. Discount Armageddon is the first book in a […]

  • Well-Tempered Clavicle by Piers AnthonyThe Leaning Pile of Books

    This week brought one unsolicited review copy. Well-Tempered Clavicle by Piers Anthony This 35th installment in the Xanth series was just released in hardcover and ebook on November 22.  An excerpt is available on the publisher’s website.

  • Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline CareyInterview with Jacqueline Carey

    Today I am very excited to have an interview with an author whose work I admire greatly, Jacqueline Carey. Jacqueline Carey has written the Kushiel’s Legacy series, the Naamah trilogy, the Sundering duology, and Santa Olivia and its sequel Saints Astray (available today!). She has amazing diversity as an author – all her books I’ve read are very different from each other and have very different main characters. I have really enjoyed every single one of her five books I […]
