Beginning in September the first company to send me ARC/review copies, Angry Robot, will begin publishing for the US and Canadian speculative fiction readers.... I thought because of this I would post links to the earlier reviews in the blog for people who might have missed them or might want to check back now that the books will be more affordable in North America...
In September among the half dozen books I have read and written about three of them. Sixty-One Nails by Mike Shevdon is a particularly good urban fantasy that renewed my interest in that genre. The other fantasy book, Kell’s Legend by Andy Remic, is a great fun sword and sorcery buddy novel that has all the vampires that Sixty one Nails lacks along with some very twisted takes on the vampire. The last, Winter Song by Colin Harvey, was hard science fiction survival story that has particularly good characterization and social themes; my favorite of these three.
In October The Bookman by Lavie Tidhar comes out. It is a great weird addition to the Steampunk genre.
