This book was actually received a few days ago, but I haven’t had time to post it until now. Monsters of the Earth by David Drake (TOR) scheduled for release in September. The copy I received was an advanced uncorrected proof without a cover, but I see that there is a cover design out there now.

Yet another book in the mail today, which certainly makes this a record week for books received (the count stands at 5 for those keeping track). This one is On the Razor’s Edge by Michael Flynn. The book is scheduled for release by TOR in July. The copy I received was an uncorrected proof, but I found this cover online:

In today’s mail was this interesting-looking anthology: Queen Victoria’s Book of Spells: An Anthology of Gaslamp Fantasy, edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling. I certainly recognize a lot names in this one:

Two books arrived in the mail today, one of which I was particularly excited about and one of which I’ve received before in a slightly different form. First up is Red Planet Blues by Robert J. Sawyer (Viking) Rob has been incredibly kind and encouraging to me as a writer, ever since I first met him back in 2007. This time was no different. My copy of the book arrived inscribed by Rob. The book comes out on March 26, 2013. I remember that because it is the day before my birthday.

Also in the mail today was the TOR hard cover edition of Kalimpura by Jay Lake. I’d received an uncorrected proof of this book a few months back and now I have the final hardcover edition, which is very cool.
