Reviewing the Mail: Week of July 16, 2022

One book this week, a new one from the fine folks at Tachyon:

Boys, Beasts & Men is the first collection of stories by Sam J. Miller, author of several novels, including The Art of Starving and Blackfish City. It has an introduction by Amal El-Mohtar, and fourteen stories that originally appeared various places between 2013 and 2019, except for one original to this collection. It also has story notes at the end, to avoid spoilers, and a long acknowledgements that taught me that Miller's mother Deborah Miller is also a genre writer. (Though, I think, not the British novelist Deborah J. Miller, who died about a decade ago.)

This was just published recently: the book itself doesn't have a date, but That Big Internet Bookstore says it was released on June 14th.

As far as I can tell, I haven't read anything by Miller, so I have no personal experience to draw on here. But he's hip and young and energetic, so maybe give it a try!
