Kage Baker's The Sons of Heaven came in the mail this week, thanks to Dot Lin at Tor. This is not an ARC - you can all get it through your local book store if you like; it came out on July 10. The cover art by Paul Youll is straightforward in theme and composition and yet delightfully well-rendered. I look forward to reading it.
Speaking of reading, this week I finished off Territory, by Emma Bull, The Last Colony, by John Scalzi, and before those, Mainspring, by Jay Lake (all from Tor as well -and speaking of cover art, Stehan Martiniere did an absolutely gorgeous job on Mainspring's, as you can see). Now I just need to get off my butt and drop a sheaf of reviews in the general direction of Bill Shafer, and then you'll know what I think of them.
