And who am I to deny that?
So, here, as I've done every Monday for several years, is an annotated list of the books that came into my mailbox last week -- books I have not yet read, I must add, so my opinions on them may be even more suspect than usual.
This week's four books divide neatly into two groups: books I've seen before (and haven't read), and books I'm seeing for the first time (and really haven't read). The first group comprises:
- Chris Roberson's new novel Further: Beyond the Threshold, coming as a trade paperback from Amazon's new SF imprint 47North on May 22nd, which I looked at in my 4/28 post
- and Paul Melko's novel The Broken Universe (sequel to The Walls of the Universe), coming as a Tor hardcover on June 5th, which I looked at in my 3/31 post
And last this time is Jessica Abel and Matt Madden's second textbook about creating comics, Mastering Comics, the follow-up to their acclaimed Drawing Words and Writing Pictures. This is from First Second, and appears to be available right now -- so, if any of you want to make comics, you'll want this book.
