More books!

Well, on my lunch break, I took a hike over to the public library, and discovered that they had a wide selection of new Science Fiction novels that I hadn't read yet. I ended up getting three off the new release stack, and one from the general stack, which was the book I actually went there to grab.

The new release stacks ones are:

  • The Rosetta Codex by Richard Paul Russo
  • Titan by Ben Bova
  • Odyssey by Jack McDevitt
The other novel I picked up was Dragon's Fire by Anne McCraffrey and Todd McCraffrey.

The Bova and McCraffrey novels I grabbed based on authorial name recognition. The other two, I grabbed because the blurbs interested me. Which, as always, shows the power of a good blurb (yes, I'm still annoyed by the lack of a blurb on The Deathly Hallows).

I'll start reading these things this evening, so expect the first reviews to be up in the next couple of days.

I also hope to get the review for The Last Mimsy written tonight. Then, I want to try and get my hands on a copy of Niven's Ring World series of books. Unfortunately, I fear they may be out of print.
