The best part about October is not, as some would argue, getting to Halloween at the end, but getting to my birthday in November!
But first, let’s talk about what I checked out from my local library this October, 2017.
The New Voices of Fantasy, edited by Peter S. Beagle. I was very pleased to peruse my library’s new books shelves and find this title. I’d seen it fly by on Twitter multiple times, and there are many authors in it that I’ve either enjoyed in the past or am interested in.
The Prey of Gods, by Nicky Drayden. A South African setting with AI and post-apocalyptic aspects made this novel intriguing. Drayden is an author I’ve never encountered before, so I’m excited to get to know her work.
An Unkindness of Ghosts, by Rivers Solomon. A generation ship, exploration, social issues! Of course I was going to pick this up. It’s also highly recommended by publications like Publisher’s Weekly.
