All Men of Genius by Lev AC Rosen The Leaning Pile of Books

This week brought two unsolicited review copies, both of which I’m very excited about. One of these books has actually already been reviewed here since I picked up an ARC at BEA – The Children of the Sky by Vernor Vinge, the sequel to A Fire Upon the Deep.  I haven’t read it myself yet (John read and reviewed it), but I am planning to since I really enjoyed A Fire Upon the Deep when I read it earlier this […]

News & Links

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 […]
