Haul & News – 23 August 2014

HnN I’ve decided that each weekend shall be the time I take to discuss books I’ve received to review and/or books I’ve bought the week before, and any news that particular caught my interest. Books Received:

  • Fearsome Magics anthology, edited by Jonathan Strahan (review)
  • The Broken Eye (Lightbringer, #3) by Brent Weeks (review)
  • The Scriptlings by Sorin Suciu (review)
  • Yesterday’s Kin by Nancy Kress (review)
  • The Cloud Roads (Books of the Raksura, #1) by Martha Wells (gift from my amazing boss Tehani)

This is a friendly warning to everyone – don’t start reading The Cloud Roads unless you have the next few hours or a day or two to yourself because you won’t be able to put it down. Tehani said this to me but I had a glance at the first few pages anyway – even though I have books I really need to read and review, and books I need to read for judging Aurealis… and boom. I’m done. Aaaargh. Consider yourself warned!



Tansy Rayner Roberts is one of my favourite authors. She is currently releasing a weekly web-serial that shall run for the next year and a half, called Musketeer Space – a gender-swapped retelling of The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, set in space.

To find out more about this, please click here to see Tansy’s blog entry.

Though this project shall be available for free, there’s also the option to become a patreon for as little as $1 a month. To see more about supporting the project, please click here.


For listeners of the podcast Galactic Suburbia, you can now patreon them per episode, and get a bunch of cool incentives along the way! Recently having hit 100 episodes and proud winners and nominees of multiple awards, they’re easily my favourite podcast.
