It’s all science fiction this time!
I very much enjoyed the short story collection Constellation, Vol. 1 by Lee & Miller [Thanks again to Carl Anderson at Stainless Steel Droppings for the review that led me to it!] so I decided to try a novel. The more I looked into the Liaden Universe, the more I wanted to read a lot of it, so I’ve gotten these omnibus volumes to get started:
The Agent Gambit by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller [Baen 2011 mass market paperback, new] – science fiction omnibus contains two novels: Agent of Change and Carpe Diem.
The Dragon Variation Sharon Lee & Steve Miller [Baen 2010 mass market paperback, new] – science fiction omnibus contains three novels: Local Custom, Scout’s Progress and Conflict of Honors
Now for some older and less serious stuff:
Whistle Stop in Space by Kendell Foster Crossen. [Altus Press 2013 trade paper, new] – science fiction. I enjoyed the first of the Manning Draco story collections, Once Upon A Star a lot so I ordered this one. These are fun, quick reading, just the thing for a Winter’s afternoon.
Johnny Mayhem – the Complete Series by Milton Lesser writing as C.H. Thames [Pulp Tale Press 2013 paperback POD, new] – pulp science fiction stories. Thanks to Bill Crider, for whom no superlative is too great, I was made aware of this collection of 1955-1958 stories from Amazing Stories. A romp.
As mentioned above, I finished the story collection Constellation, Vol. 1 by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. I finished Here, There, Everywhere by William Least Heat-Moon, a very enjoyable collection of Heat-Moon’s short form travel writing. That made a nice break before my plunge into some short stories of various genres and then my first Liaden Universe novel (not sure which one yet).
What new did you get, what have you been reading?
