Books Received

Queen of Candesce, by Karl Schroeder
From Dot Lin of Tor Books

Since this is the second book of Virga and I've not read the first (Sun of Suns), I don't know how soon I'll get to it. But it's nice to receive it - Karl Schroeder has some of the most interesting ideas in science fiction today.

Ascendancies: The Best of Bruce Sterling
From Bill Schafer at Subterranean Press

I don't usually comment on books received from Subterranean Press, since I work for Bill, but I have to say, this book is gorgeous. From the cover art by Peter Miller to the interior design, this heavy volume impressed me even before I looked at the contents list. (I will also admit that when I looked at the copyright page I sighed and wished I had proofed it because there were four titles in bold that should have been in italics, but what can you do? {Edited to note: BS says the other BS asked for those terms to be in bold specifically - it's not a typographical error.}).

I'm sure I will enjoy this collection. Bruce Sterling is one of my favorite contemporary writers.
