Bookish News and Links

Tor.com has an excerpt from The Sea Thy Mistress, the conclusion to Elizabeth Bear’s Edda of Burdens trilogy.  I’m reading this right now and I am enjoying it immensely so far.  The books in this trilogy are so beautifully written and I love all the Norse mythology. Sadly, Sarah Monette’s cat recently passed away.  On February 2, she is holding a memorial fundraiser and the proceeds are going to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital’s Animal Companion Fund.  […]

News & Links

It’s probably going to be a bit quiet here until the holiday is over, but in the meantime here’s some links of interest. Seeing a release date for The Tempering of Men caused me to see if I could find a date for Sarah Monette’s next book.  Her next novel is titled The Goblin Emperor and will be written under the name Katherine Addison.  According to a recent post on her blog, it is tentatively scheduled for Spring 2012.  I […]

The Tempering of Men by Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette

Recently I came across a link to the Tor Spring/Summer catalog on asoiaf.westeros.org and was very excited to see the sequel to A Companion to Wolves by Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette was included.  The Tempering of Men will be released in hardcover in August 2011 and I cannot wait since I really liked the first book – and Bear and Monette are two of my favorite authors. Since my husband is a huge fan of Vernor Vinge, I also […]

Review of Corambis

Corambisby Sarah Monette432pp (Hardcover)My Rating: 8.5/10Amazon Rating: 4.5/5LibraryThing Rating: 4.44/5Goodreads Rating: 4.33/5 Corambis is the fourth and final book in Sarah Monette’s character-driven fantasy series, The Doctrine of Labyrinth. The first three books are Melusine, The Virtu, and The Mirador, respectively, and should definitely be read in that order. This is one of my favorite series of all time so Corambis was the 2009 release I was most looking forward to. While I enjoyed Corambis very much and thought it […]

Sarah Monette Q&A on Her Blog

So I finished Corambis last night (or rather, in the wee hours of the morning since it was technically sometime after 4 AM) and finally headed over to check out the Q&A Sarah Monette has running on her blog. I’d been waiting to finish the book first in case there were spoilers, but it seems I did not need to worry since she hid any question containing anything that could be considered a spoiler, even if it was a minor […]
